Fuck off, non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma

This movie is adapted from a real person and a real story. The heroine was found to have an incurable disease-non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma at the end of her 20s. It is said that famous Japanese movie star Takakura Ken, Mr. Lee Kai-fu, chief executive officer of Innovation Works, suffers from the same disease. The former Gao Cangjian, who is popular among thousands of young girls, starred in the Japanese movie “Hunt” and the theme song “La Yala” is also popular in the streets. His image of man of iron is deeply rooted in the hearts and minds of the people. Unfortunately, man of iron lost to lymphoma after all. He died of the disease at the age of 83. What are the symptoms of lymphoma? In the newly released film, The heroine’s first onset is when she suddenly fainted at home. During the attack, And suddenly have difficulty breathing. But in fact, The symptoms of lymphoma go far beyond that, In general, patients with lymphoma, Painless swelling will be found in the neck, armpit or groin, as well as unexplained weight loss, fever, night sweat, cough, dyspnea, chest pain, fatigue, fatigue, abdominal distension, pain, etc. After going to a regular hospital, doctors will make a definite diagnosis according to the results of physical examination, blood examination, imaging examination and tissue biopsy. Why is it called [Hodgkin]? In 1832, British pathologist Thomas Hodgkin first described the disease. But at that time he did not know it was a cancer, Just at the autopsy, Enlargement and induration of lymph nodes and spleen were observed. He published a paper on his findings < < On Some Morbid Manifestations of Lymph Nodes and Spleen > > >, But not many people were interested. It is said that when he gave the academic report, only eight people attended. Even when the lecture was over, those people did not want to sign their names and left. Until his death in 1866, his research results were not confirmed. But later, in memory of his discovery, lymphoma was named after him. What people are prone to lymphoma? The causes of cancer are extremely complex, We call [the cause that increases the occurrence of cancer] [Risk Factor]. Different cancers have different risk factors, Some can be changed, Some can’t. For example, Smoking is a risk factor for many cancers, As long as you stop smoking, you will eliminate this risk factor, which is a risk factor that can be changed. However, some risk factors like [family history] cannot be eliminated, and some even increase, such as age. If you have one or more risk factors for a certain cancer, it does not mean that you will definitely get the cancer. But if all the risk factors for a single cancer can be eliminated, Then you have prevented the cancer to the greatest extent possible. In most cases, it is really hard to say why a specific patient suffers from lymphoma. But this does not mean that there is nothing we can do to prevent cancer. The best way is to reduce the risk factors for lymphoma. What are the risk factors for lymphoma? 1. Infection with EB virus, human T cell virus type 1, HIV virus and human herpes virus type 8, All four viruses can directly infect lymphocytes and cause cancer. It should be noted that Human T cell virus type 1 is more common in Japan and Caribbean coastal countries than in other countries and regions. Whether Gao Cangjian was shot by the virus, I don’t know. With antiviral/antibacterial infections, Some lymphomas can be cured. 2. Immunity Decline Any cause of immunity decline is a risk factor for lymphoma. This includes a wide range. Autoimmune diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis, systemic lupus erythematosus, Sjogren’s syndrome, celiac disease, Immunosuppressants used to treat some diseases, As well as long-term excessive fatigue in daily life and excessive stress in mental life, Can cause immune system dysfunction. Of course, Exposure to radiation and harmful substances also reduces immunity. Non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma often occurs after the age of 60. The older you get, The greater the risk. As far as I understand it, After the age of 60, The immune function of the body gradually decreases, Hodgkin’s lymphoma, It is more common in young patients. 3. More and more evidence of obesity and diet shows that, Obesity and diet are risk factors for lymphoma, A high-fat and high-protein diet is also a risk factor. Because of space constraints, Can’t expand here, But [the American Cancer Society] and [the National Cancer Institute] will tell you, Obesity and diet account for one-third of the causes of cancer, It is higher than the well-known and notorious smoking. Treatment and prognosis Treatment methods, Including chemotherapy and radiotherapy. Because there are many types of [non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma], Different types have different treatment schemes, Therefore, if diagnosed, we must go to a regular hospital for treatment, and do not believe any [ancestral secret recipe] and [panacea]. In the United States, the five-year survival rate of Hodgkin’s lymphoma is 85%, while that of non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma is 69%. Active treatment can give patients more survival time. Summary to review again, can man of iron Gao Cangjian’s lymphoma also be prevented? The reliable methods you can control most are: maintaining a normal weight, eating healthy and reducing the risk of virus infection by reducing sexual partners. But can you do it?
