Nonetheless, the level of pain may increase in the night, when walking around and may be better when resting. This level of pain is what is triggering the discussion about the effectiveness cancer management from bone metastasis (meters). Pain is the single common denominator with all cancer patients no matter nature. The good news is that something can be done about any pain caused by bone metastasis. In fact, there’s a lot we can do to reduce the pain. There’s no reason why any cancer patient should live with excessive pain.

Effective cancer management: Tracking bone metastasis pain

Ignorance has been sighted as one of the biggest reason why people are suffering. To help you out, doctor Akoury is making effort to fill the gap by impacting health information that stands out in helping the society prevent all preventable conditions. She adds that metastatic cancer cells damaged bones causes’ pain in several ways including:

  • They produce substances that can dissolve and weaken bones. This may cause a bone to break, which is painful.
  • As the tumor grows in the bone, nerve endings in and around the bone also send pain signals to the brain.
  • They may make bones harden. This is called sclerosis.

Because most of the cancer pains are as a result of metastasis, many people often think that all pains are caused by metastasis. This may not be the case because other pains like one suffering from a severe shoulder pain could not necessarily come from metastasis but even from a frozen shoulder or tendonitis, she says. Therefore what will inform you if this is actually a cancer pain? One difference is that cancer pain persists while other types of pain are more likely to come and go. But better still, even though this is an indicator, it’s still very important to get any new or changing pain checked out in good time.

Finally, if you have persistent bone pain, for example, bring it to the attention of your oncologist. It is better that you keep your doctor busy even with very obvious things than to suspect something and assume it. Making an assumption is a very poor way of seeking for help. Therefore I want to encourage you to call with any questions, our team of experts at AWAREmed Health and Wellness Resource Center will be there to help you solve the situation in good time.

Some of those questions may include:

  • How severe is the pain on a scale of 1 to 10?
  • What is the pain like? Is it burning? Sharp? Dull?

When seeking for treatment, your doctor will carry out an evaluation and consider many factors before settling on the best treatment procedure for you. Normally experts will consider the location of the pain. For example, metastasis in as a weight-bearing bone is more painful than in other bones. This may affect the treatment approach. Pain management may also depend on how widespread the pain is. If the pain is just in one place that may be managed differently than if it is in multiple places. If you have pain only in one or two spots, it is possible to target cancer with radiation therapy. This uses high-energy X-rays to kill cancer cells and help relieve bone pain even though, the pain may be in several spots. It is not possible to focus a directed therapy such as radiation on many spots. In such cases, the use of a total body treatment for the pain, such as drug therapy may be applicable.

Finally, management of cancer pains from bone metastasis is effective however, the patient must be proactive for treatment to be very rapid and timely. It may sound less important but the information that will come out of the answered question derived from the notes you kept will be useful in treatment.

Defeating alcohol drinking temptation for better health: Common health conditions

You must have been told that a little alcohol is good for your digestion and that it is better to take this substance responsible or moderately. I have equally been told the same. But wait a moment, are there consequences of doing so? Why then are we warned in every advertisements that alcohol consumption is harmful for your health? This is what we want to address in this article even as we seek for ways of defeating alcohol drinking for a better health. According to the experts from AWAREmed Health and Wellness Resource Center under the able leadership of doctor Dalal Akoury MD. It all begins with understanding the effects of alcohol addiction before taking actions of defeating the problem.

Effects on the Lungs

Pneumonia – Over time, chronic alcoholism can cause severe reductions in white blood cells, which increase the risk for community-acquired pneumonia i.e. pneumonia acquired outside of hospitals or nursing homes. When patients are inebriated they are also at risk for aspiration of mucus from the airways, causing pneumonia. Patients who abuse alcoholism have a greater risk for developing severe pneumonia. It is therefore advisable that patients with alcohol dependence receive an annual pneumococcal pneumonia vaccination and so when you start seeing signs like high fever, cough, and stabbing chest pains you must consult with your doctor immediately.

Skin, Muscle, and Bone Disorders

Severe alcoholism is associated with osteoporosis i.e. loss of bone density, muscular deterioration, skin sores, and itching. Women often seem to face a higher risk than men for damage to muscles, including muscles of the heart, from the toxic effects of alcohol.

Defeating alcohol drinking temptation for better health: Reproduction and Fetal Development

Sexual Function and Fertility – Alcoholism increases levels of the female hormone estrogen and reduces levels of the male hormone testosterone, factors that possibly contribute to erectile dysfunction and enlarged breasts in men, and infertility in women. Such changes may also be responsible for the higher risks for absent periods and abnormal uterine bleeding in women with alcoholism.

Drinking during Pregnancy and Effects on the Infant – there is no safe drinking when it comes to pregnant mothers. That which you call moderate amounts of alcohol is more than enough to cause damaging effects on the development of the fetus in several ways like low birth weight and an increased risk for miscarriage. High amounts can cause fetal alcohol syndrome a condition that can cause mental and growth retardation. Although there is no specific amount of alcohol intake, the risk of developing the syndrome is increased depending on the time of alcohol exposure during pregnancy, a pattern of drinking (four or more drinks per occasion), and how often alcohol consumption occurs.

Effect on Weight and Diabetes

Moderate alcohol consumption may help protect the hearts of adults with type 2 diabetes. Heavy drinking, however, is associated with obesity, which is a risk factor for this form of diabetes. In addition, alcohol can cause hypoglycemia, a drop in blood sugar, which is especially dangerous for people with diabetes who are taking insulin. Intoxicated diabetics may not be able to recognize symptoms of hypoglycemia. The list is endless and we are still going to address the two below in our next article so keep reading and be the first to know. But in the meantime, if you have any concern over this discussion, you can call doctor Akoury for more professional input.
