Online PR News – 20-August-2010 – – (21ST August, 2010) With the terrible news of actor Michael Douglas and his battle with throat cancer, Verona Medical Group of Toronto, Ontario urges the public to be aware of the steps possible for early detection of a number of cancers.
If caught in the early stages, radiation and chemotherapy have significantly higher chances of helping to fight the illness, and stop further spreading. In the case of Douglas, a well-known icon in Hollywood, smoking and/or drinking can lead to a higher occurrence of throat cancers, so those partaking in these activities are advised to consult with their physicians on the possible early detection processes.
The Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care of Ontario states that one in every three Canadians will be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime, with cancer being the second leading cause of death in the country. These shocking figures are further testament to validity of discussing early detection with your physician, along with the following steps to decrease the likelihood of cancer:
Eating a healthy diet
Maintaining a healthy body weight
Reduce Alcohol consumption
Regular physical activity
Eliminate smoking Cigarettes
Avoid direct Sunlight.
Also be sure to make your doctor aware of any history or instances of cancer in your family, along with fully divulging any lumps, swellings, or unusual changes to your body.
These simple steps can help to decrease the public's chances of getting cancer, and detecting the cancerous cells at the earliest opportunity will further help to reduce the results of the illness. Verona Medical Group urges the public to follow these outlined steps, and speak regularly with their physician regarding techniques and tests available for early detection.
