Preventive examinations should be held every year. Women are required to be examined by a mammologist: up to 40 years of age, each year, make an ultrasound diagnosis, after -mamography. Once a year, men should undergo a preventive examination at the urologist

Regular physical activity, maintaining a healthy body weight, as well as proper nutrition are the simple things that save lives. It has been proven that there is a link between overweight, obesity and many types of cancer - the esophagus, the colon and rectum, the mammary gland, the mucous membrane of the uterus and kidneys.

Breast cancer is the most common form of cancer among women. However, discovered in a timely manner, this disease is successfully treatable. According to the World Health Organization, almost a third of all women with breast cancer are under the age of 45. The prevention of breast cancer is the implementation of simple rules that every woman should know.

The term "ovarian cancer" is often used to refer to oncology beginning in ovarian, fallopian tube, or peritoneum cells. These cancers are very similar, so they are usually treated the same way. The oncology is triggered when healthy cells change their size and structure, forming a tumor. It can be malignant or benign. If a benign neoplasm never grows into neighboring organs, then a malignant (cancer) tumor passes to other parts of the body.

According to statistics, more than 70% of all prostate cancer cases are men after 65 years. However, increasingly this disease has caused the death of men at a younger age - up to 40 years. This is more due to the low level of early prostate cancer diagnosis in young men and poor awareness of disease prevention.

Prostate cancer is the most frequent cancer in the male half of the population. There are enough reasons for its appearance: genetic predisposition, unhealthy lifestyle and chronic prostate diseases. Prevention of prostate cancer can protect every man from severe consequences.

To prevent prostate problems, you can take certain medications that will reduce the production of the hormone dehydrotestosterone, which provokes the development of cancer. But when using such drugs, sexual activity significantly worsens, so most often men take them exclusively on the recommendation of the attending doctor.

The first wave of cancer drugs aimed to destroy all rapidly growing cells (so patients had hair, eyebrows and eyelashes). It was a method of "carpet bombing": cancer cells died, but the body barely got out.

Practice shows that only one idea out of ten thousand leads to the appearance of a new drug, and the average development time of the drug is ten to fifteen years. When we pay for the packaging of original drugs, we pay not only for production costs. We pay for the years of work that it took to find this medicine and develop a protocol of use.

Honestly, no country in the world is able to treat its citizens for cancer only with original drugs. This will not stand any budget in the world, not only Russian. Therefore, there are generics and biosimilars - copies of the original drugs that can be started when the patent protection of the drug ends. For the country's economy, this is very profitable: an honest generic costs 80 percent cheaper than the original one - the company producing it does not need to return the costs for decades of research, you need to pay only for raw materials and production.
