Oncologist Elena Smirnova voiced the reasons for the rapid growth of cancerous tumors at different ages. The risk of developing this ailment is associated with heredity, at the same time, smokers most often get sick.
Proctologist Elena Smirnova analyzed the study published in the Journal of Clinical Oncology. Patients who are addicted to tobacco have twice the risk of early death. The specialist noted that in smokers, malignant tumors arise and progress more aggressively, while metastases appear more actively, growing into neighboring organs. Citizens with a predisposition due to heredity often fall ill with cancer. Their risk of illness, as well as of premature death, increases depending on the number of family members diagnosed with cancer. This deadly disease must be recognized at an early stage. Doctors also examine the severity of the clinical picture, including the age at which the malignant neoplasms appear.
In order to recognize cancer in time, it is necessary to undergo the first examination by a proctologist at the age of 30-40 years. Further, it is necessary to donate feces annually for analysis, since the immunochemical method will determine the presence of cancer cells in the blood. The first colonoscopy should be performed at the age of 40, then this procedure is carried out on the recommendation of an endoscopist and proctologist, usually it is performed every three years.
