Types Of Cancer

A person's body is composed of many different types of cells that will grow, divide, and then die. Sometimes these cells undergo mutations that grow and divide themselves faster than normal cells. Clumps of abnormal cells will form a tumor. If these tumors are malignant, he will attack and kill healthy tissue in the body. This is referred to as cancer.

Some cancers are more easily treatable when detected in its early stage due to a higher level of her healing. But not all cancers are easily detected. Cancer that is easy and hard to detect? Some types of cancer that is easy and difficult to detect is as follows.

Cancer that is easily detected

1. skin cancer
Skin cancer, including cancers that are easy to detect, because generally the symptoms that arise to look like a new growth in the leather, the wound never healed, no change in shape or colour of a mole, as well as other changes in the skin. If any of these symptoms arise should immediately consult a doctor.

Skin Cancer Symptoms

There are a variety of different skin cancer symptoms. These include changes in the skin that do not heal, ulcering in the skin, discolored skin, and changes in existing moles, such as jagged edges to the mole and enlargement of the mole.
  • ''Basal cell carcinoma'' usually looks like a raised, smooth, pearly bump on the sun-exposed skin of the head, neck or shoulders. Sometimes small blood vessels can be seen within the tumor. Crusting and bleeding in the center of the tumor frequently develops. It is often mistaken for a sore that does not heal. This form of skin cancer is the least deadly and with proper treatment can be completely eliminated with not so much as a single scar.
  • ''Squamous cell carcinoma'' is commonly a red, scaling, thickened patch on sun-exposed skin. Ulceration and bleeding may occur. When SCC is not treated, it may develop into a large mass. Squamous cell is the second most common skin cancer. It is dangerous, but not nearly as dangerous as a melanoma.

A Diagnoses Of Cancer

Current cancer detection efforts are with Digital Infrared Imaging or Digital Infrared Imaging (PID). This technique is to monitor the health of the breast and cervix on women of the prakanker process. Working principle is that in a PID temperature will emit radiation wave electromagnet from the surface invisible, where the maximum intensity occurs at a wavelength of the infrared light. Chemical activity and blood vessel activity in the tissue surrounding the prakanker growing always higher than the normal tissue.


Some filtering tests that can be done at home, for example doing breast self examination every month can help women detect breast kaknker.


Check the scrotal can help men to detect cancer early so it can be cured if discovered at an early stage.


Check regularly the wound dimulut that does not heal to detect oral cancer at an early stage.


Specify the Staging of cancer


If the cancer has been found, check the determination stage (staging) cancer help doctors in planning an appropriate treatment and determining the prognosis of travel. Staging can be performed using:

What is Cancer ?

Cancer is not a mild disease. The first step in the treatment of cancer is detected correctly that the symptoms that appear on the patient's body is actually malignant cancer cells. This detection is done by examination of the biopsy, so treatment can be done step quickly and precisely. The next step is treatment with conventional therapy. But in fact the treatment this way often cancer have not been able to overcome in total. This is the role of medicinal plants/herbs.

The primary role of herbs is improving durability of the patient's body and localized kaker cells so that cancer cells are not easy to spread, and more easily made, as well as non-toxic making it safer for the patient's body. An example is a medicinal plant extract from keladi tikus (Typhonium). In this usage, a medicinal plant can be used in conjunction with conventional medicine (surgery, chemotherapy, radiotherapy and hormonterapi) or after conventional treatment is finished. Because the drug from the extract of keladi tikus can help reduce the effects of the treatment of conventionally.

The amount of sufferers of the disease cancer in Indonesia is not yet known with certainty, but increased from year to year can be proven as one of the leading causes of death. Only a few cancers that can be treated satisfactorily, especially if it is treated as an early stage. The success of the treatment is determined by the type of cancer, cancer stage, the General State of the patient, and patient to heal.

Skin Cancer


Skin cancer is a malignant growth on the skin that can have many causes. The most common skin cancer are basal cell cancer, squamous cell cancer, and melanoma. Skin cancer generally develops in the epidermis (outermost layer of skin), so that the tumor is usually clearly visible. This makes most skin cancer is detected at an early stage.


There are three common types of skin cancer and possibly, each named after a type of skin cells from appearing. Unlike other cancers, including those coming from the lungs, pancreas, and stomach, only a small minority of those who suffer from really going to die of the disease.


Skin cancer is the most frequently diagnosed cancer, surpassing lung, breast, colorectal and prostate cancer. This is the most common cancer in the young population (20-39 age group).
