Cancer

WHAT IS CANCER?

Cancer is a genetic disease (meaning that it’s caused by changes to genes that control the way our cells function, grow, and divide). It is a group of diseases in which mutant cells multiply, eventually interfering with the natural functions of the body. According to the National Cancer Institute, approximately 38.4% of men and women will be diagnosed with cancer at some point during their lifetime.There are currently over 100 known forms of cancer. Some of the most prevalent categories include:

  • Lymphoma- is cancer that begins in infection-fighting cells of the immune system, called lymphocytes
  • Carcinoma- is a type of cancer that starts in cells that make up the skin or the tissue lining organs
  • Leukemia-is cancer of the body’s blood-forming tissues, including the bone marrow and the lymphatic system
  • Sarcoma-is the general term for a broad group of cancers that begin in the bones and in the soft tissues
  • Melanoma-is a form of skin cancer that arises when pigment-producing cells—known as melanocytes—mutate and become cancerous

Cancer therapy often involves a combination of treatments, including: surgery, chemotherapy, radiation therapy, immunotherapy, targeted therapy, hormone therapy and stem cell transplants.

CANCER SYMPTOMS

Early cancer symptoms vary depending on the type of cancer and may include:

  • Abdominal pain
  • Appetite changes and/or difficulty eating
  • Changes in bowel or urination habits
  • Fatigue
  • Hoarseness or a cough that does not go away
  • Night sweats
  • Slow healing
  • Skin changes (such as a new mole or change in an existing mole, a thickening or lump on or under the skin, or a change in skin texture)
  • Unusual bleeding or discharge

Traditional cancer therapies and medications may lead to several debilitating side effects, including:

  • Bleeding and bruising
  • Fatigue
  • Loss of appetite
  • Memory or concentration problems
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Pain and/or nerve problems
  • Trouble sleeping

MEDICAL MARIJUANA CAN HELPS CANCER PATIENTS IN SEVERAL WAYS

Medical marijuana has demonstrated efficacy in treating the following therapy side effects and cancer symptoms :

  • Loss of appetite
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Anxiety
  • Relief pain
  • Depression

In addition, research suggests cannabis may exert anti-cancer effects by causing cell death, modulating cell-signaling pathways, and inhibiting tumor invasion. For instance, a 2011 study of cannabidiol (CBD) found that CBD kills breast cancer cells by inducing endoplasmic reticulum stress and inhibiting cell-signaling. Likewise, colon cancer studies show that CBD has a cancer-protective effect and reduces cancer cell proliferation.
