mesothelioma chemotherapy

Just the word cancer is frightening enough by itself. Even the threat of a possible diagnosis causes anxiety and a fear of death unlike any other disease. However, it’s important to realize that cancer does not have to be a death sentence. Early detection is the best tool modern medicine has to stop cancer and prevent it from spreading throughout the body. It’s a fact that localized cancer in itself isn’t usually life threatening. It’s when the cancerous cells migrate throughout the body that death often occurs. Since early detection is the best tool in beating cancer, it is critical that the symptoms are recognized as soon as possible so that treatment can begin before the cancer spreads.

Aside from the normal symptoms such as unusual lumps, a change in a mole or wart, troubles with the digestive system, and other common signs, there are also two serious conditions that are often times a warning sign for cancer.
