Dr. Mangesh P Kamath | Appointment booking no: 9900613143Website: drmangeshkamathcancercare.comSenior Consultant & Medical Director | Medical and HematoOncologist, BMT Physician, Healius Cancer & Hematology Clinic, Banashankari Stage II, BengaluruThis is very commonly asked question, if cancer is preventable. My answer to the question is yes. Absolutely it is preventable but we all know that not all things are practical, the meaning of that is for cancer to be prevented you have to follow a lot of good habits, good lifestyle. Stay away for certain poisonous substances like alcohol, tobacco, red meat and also live in a very clean environment, clean air, clear water and so all. Is this really practical? Not really. We are all living in cities where there is a lot of pollution and a lot of food we eat is laden with pesticides and insecticides. Also there are a lot of carcinogenic substances. So the way we can prevent cancer is to avoid all the cancer causing poisonous substances and to avoid a lot of poisonous substances like Hepatitis A., hepatitis B etc. A very common cancer in India is cervix cancer, we have a huge burden of cervix cancer, try he human papilloma virus causing cervix cancer or cancer of the uterus, so it can be prevented by the vaccination of the HPV before the onset of sexual activity by a female. It is a preventable cancer, but not actually this cancer is preventable. Hepatitis B virus is a type of cancer that prevents cancer. Many patients come to us saying I have lung cancer but is not a smoker. Many people are passive smokers. So there are bladder cancers, lung cancer, blood cancer occurring in farmers who are using deadly insecticides and pesticides. #expertskisuno#cancerprevention#Preventcancer#HPV#cervixcancer#humanpapillomavirus #HormonalTherapy#TargetedTherapy#Immunotherapy#Chemotherapy#bloodcancer#MultipleMyeloma#cancercure#cancersurvival
