According to oncologist Vadim Kolosyuk, tumors of external location to identify at an early stage is easier, then as tumors hidden localization is almost impossible to diagnose early in the disease.
Oncologist, surgeon, endocrinologist Vadim Kolosyuk told the newspaper “Arguments and facts” on the problem of identifying different types of cancer at an early stage. It is known that in the case of cancer, the effectiveness of the treatment depends on the time of detection: the sooner you find them, the higher the probability of successful therapy. However, some types of cancer are amenable to early diagnosis with great difficulty – sometimes they are nearly impossible to identify at an early stage of the disease, said the doctor.
Kolosok said that different tumors of the outer and hidden localization.
“Education, which is extremely difficult to diagnose at an early stage, often belong to the second group: it is a cancer of the lung, stomach and colon,” called the medic the most secretive types of cancer.
He explained that although lung cancer screening uses x-rays, it allows you to see only peripheral tumors that are quite rare. To detect Central tumors x-rays in General are useless.
As for the stomach and intestines, emerging in the cancer they can help identify the gastro and colonoscopy, however these procedures are not assigned to all – because the tumors of these bodies are found by chance, either late when the symptoms appear, characteristic of an already active stage of the disease.
Speaking of cancers, which are quite well detected at an early stage, the oncologist called brain tumors and leukemia (blood cancer). At occurrence of brain cancer pretty early on begin to show its symptoms – headaches, vertigo, convulsions. In leukemia there is a sharp decline in immunity, very severe anemia, to diagnose the disease allows a banal blood test.
Tumors of external location to find the easiest way breast cancer in women and prostate cancer in males can be successfully identified in the early stages, suggested the expert.
