I am pursing MBA in Hospitality, and I am writing a thesis on Cancer. My question is, "How to get affected by Lung Cancer or Blood Cancer"
If you need help on this topic you need to be a little clearer in your questions. Hospitality usually means the hotel and service industry and I'm. It really sure what you mean by 'how to get affected by lung or blood cancer'. Do you mean how to contract either of these cancers as they are completely different and many professors spend their entire careers on just one of those questions.
Different types of Virus are responsible to cause blood cancer such as human immunodeficiency virus and human T-lymphotropic virus (HTLV-1). Other cause of blood cancer is artificial ionizing radiation. There are some other factors that can cause blood cancer such as alkylating chemotherapy agents used in previous cancers, genetic predisposition, maternal fetal transmission (very rare), hair dyes, electromagnetic energy, Down syndrome and exposure to benzene.
How can you treat cancer?
Blood cancer is a life threatening disease so its timely treatment is very necessary. There are various ways to treat cancer such as therapies like biological therapy, radiation therapy, chemotherapy, stem cell transplantation, target therapy and other therapies. Some medicines like Cytarabine are also available to treat the blood cancer.
The chance of developing lung cancer & blood cancer may be impacted by several variables. You can reduce some risk factors, like smoking, by giving it up. However, some circumstances, like your family history, are outside of your control.
Lung cancer & blood cancer risk factors include:
Smoking. The number of cigarettes you smoke each day and the length of time you have been smoking both raise your risk of developing lung cancer. You can dramatically reduce your risk of lung cancer by quitting at any age.
Exposure to passive smoking Even if you don't smoke, being around secondhand smoke raises your risk of developing lung cancer & blood cancer.
Prior radiation treatment. If you've undergone radiation therapy to the chest for another type of cancer, you may have an increased risk of developing lung cancer & blood cancer.
Being exposed to radon gas The natural breakdown of uranium in soil, rock, and water results in the production of radon, which eventually finds its way into the air you breathe. Radon can build up to unsafe levels in any structure, including dwellings.
exposure to other carcinogens, such as asbestos.
Your chance of developing lung cancer & blood cancer can increase if you work with asbestos and other cancer-causing agents including arsenic, chromium, and nickel, especially if you smoke.
History of lung cancer & blood cancer in the family. Lung cancer risk is higher in people who have a parent, sibling, or child who has the disease. Same as blood cancer.
