Learn the symptoms for all major types of cancer so that you know when you need to see a doctor. If you go to the doctor when you first experience symptoms, you may be able to get cancer treated before it has progressed very far. This improves your chances for a long and happy life. Losing weight, finding blood in your stool or persistent cramps could be symptoms of colon cancer. If you have any of these symptoms, get examined by a doctor.
Any decks or play sets built before 2005 should get a good coat of sealant. The wood used back then contained a pesticide made of arsenic, so sealing it can help to contain that chemical and reduce the chance that exposure will cause longer term injury to your child.
Avoid doctors that you cannot communicate openly and honestly with. When you have questions, you should be able to ask your doctor about them. You need a doctor who will get back to you right away.
Sleep is something your body needs. Getting sleep is going to give your body the time that it needs to recover and regenerate from the treatments that you are putting it through. It is recommended that you get a minimum of seven hours sleep during the night and take at least a one our nap during the day.
If you or a loved one has cancer, it may seem like death is around the corner. Sometimes cancer is fatal, but that doesn’t mean that you can view your loved one as being at the end of their life! There are some people who live a fulfilling life, even though they have cancer. If someone you know has cancer, find them someone to talk to. Your hospital or doctor may have some recommendations for local resources and there are many cancer groups that are active online as well. Either option will help the cancer sufferer deal with her emotions more effectively.
