Cancer, the disease that is sweeping the world

Unfortunately, cancer is one of the leading causes of death worldwide. Cancer mortality figures in Spain and worldwide vary depending on the type of cancer and factors such as age, sex and geographic region.

According to the World Health Organization (WHO), around 10 million cancer deaths will be recorded worldwide in 2020. In Spain, according to data from the Spanish Society of Medical Oncology (SEOM), in 2020 some 277,000 new cases of cancer were diagnosed and there were around 113,000 deaths from this disease.

It is important to note that these figures vary according to the type of cancer and the age of the affected individuals. Some of the most frequent types of cancer in Spain are lung cancer, colorectal cancer, breast cancer and prostate cancer.

The cause of Cancer disease

Cancer is a complex, multifactorial disease that can be caused by a combination of genetic and environmental factors. Some of the major risk factors that may contribute to the development of cancer include:

  1. Genetic factors: Some cancers can be caused by genetic changes inherited from parents, such as mutations in the BRCA1 and BRCA2 genes that increase the risk of breast and ovarian cancer, or Lynch disease, which increases the risk of colorectal cancer.
  2. Exposure to chemicals and toxic substances: Prolonged contact with chemicals such as asbestos, benzene, arsenic and tobacco can increase the risk of developing lung, bladder and other cancers.
  3. Unhealthy lifestyle: Excessive alcohol consumption, lack of physical activity, tobacco use, an unhealthy diet and being overweight can increase the risk of developing certain types of cancer.
  4. Radiation: Exposure to high levels of ionizing radiation, such as radiation from X-rays and gamma rays, can increase the risk of thyroid cancer, leukemia and other cancers.
  5. Viruses and bacteria: Some viral and bacterial infections, such as human papillomavirus (HPV), hepatitis B and C virus and Helicobacter pylori bacteria, can increase the risk of developing certain types of cancer.

It is important to keep in mind that many cases of cancer can be prevented by adopting a healthy lifestyle and avoiding known risk factors. In addition, early detection of cancer and timely treatment can improve the chances of survival and recovery.

Ewing’s Sarcoma, the type of cancer that took Elena away from us

ewing’s sarcoma is a rare type of bone cancer that usually affects children and young adults. It originates in the long bones, such as the femur and pelvic bone, although it can also affect other tissues and organs of the body.

Symptoms of Ewing’s sarcoma may include:

  • Pain in the affected area that may be worse at night or with physical activity
  • Swelling or inflammation in the affected area
  • Unexplained fever
  • Fatigue
  • Weight loss
  • Difficulty moving a limb
  • Bone fractures

These symptoms can be caused by many other medical conditions, so it is important to seek medical attention if you experience any of them.

Ewing’s sarcoma is an aggressive cancer that can spread rapidly to other tissues and organs of the body. Treatment usually involves a combination of chemotherapy, radiation therapy and surgery to remove the tumor. It is important to seek medical attention and treatment as soon as possible to improve the chances of survival and recovery.

  2. Seek emotional support: Enlisting the support of friends and family, and talking with a mental health professional or counselor, can help process emotions and reduce stress.
  3. Maintain a healthy lifestyle: Maintaining a healthy diet, exercising regularly and avoiding unhealthy habits such as smoking can help strengthen the body and improve overall well-being.
  4. Seek quality medical care: Seeking quality medical care, including a specialized cancer care team, can help you receive the best possible treatment and have a better quality of life.
  5. Communicate openly with the medical team: Communicating openly with the medical team and asking questions can help you better understand treatment and side effects and make informed decisions about care.
  6. Maintain a positive attitude: Keeping a positive attitude and focusing on things you can control can help you face the disease with greater strength and maintain hope and motivation.
