How to solve problems

It’s somehow not customary to talk about colon problems in our country. This is not your heart, and not even your teeth. Here you can openly talk and sympathize, and advise. But how do you talk about hemorrhoids? Meanwhile, if every person over 40 regularly examined his gut, there would be much less problems.

Alas, so far this is far. Today in Russia, 45,000 people get colon cancer annually. The main risk group is people over 60 years old, however, among patients, about 20% of those who are still very far from retirement.

The exact causes of this, as, indeed, of any other cancer, are not fully understood. But one thing is clear: colon and rectal cancer is a disease of civilization. In those parts of the world where people still earn their livelihood by hunting and fishing, where it is customary to move around not on wheels, but on their own, where the air is saturated with smells of earth and grass, not gasoline and asphalt, this ailment and rumor did not hear.

Senile ailments attack young

More and more so-called diseases of aging humanity today are found in young patients. Almost in first place in terms of “rejuvenation rates” are osteochondrosis of the spine, cholelithiasis, varicose veins and rheumatoid arthritis. Why are these senile ailments attacking the young? And is it possible to withstand this onslaught?

The desired corset is not formed

Complications of osteochondrosis, such as hernias of the intervertebral discs, are found even in 13-14 year old children. Naturally, all these problems safely pass into adulthood. The reasons are simple. Children play little sports, rarely play outdoor games on the street. Modern schoolchildren sit for hours at school in lessons, and at home – playing at the computer. Many children and adolescents are overweight. Continue reading

Cancer in women: the most painful problem – diagnosis

Recently, a round table was held in St. Petersburg, which was devoted to the problem of oncological diseases of the female reproductive system. Its organizers were the Association of Oncologists of the Northwestern Federal District and the Federal State Budget Scientific Institution “Research Institute of Oncology named after N. N. Petrov” of the Ministry of Health of Russia. The place chosen is not accidental. It is in the Northern capital that this problem is especially acute.

Participants discussed the results of a pilot project for screening cancer of the reproductive system in women and adopted a resolution on further improving cancer diagnosis.

The North-Western region of Russia is quite unfavorable in terms of the incidence of malignant tumors of the female reproductive sphere. So, in 2012, the standardized incidence rate of cervical cancer (cervical cancer) in the Northwestern Federal District amounted to 14.79 per 100,000 people, and mortality – 4.95 per 100,000 people. In a region with a population of about 14 million people, 608 deaths from this disease were reported. Often the disease is detected at the III-IV stage, when it is already impossible to radically change the prognosis. Continue reading
