Drug research has shown that tamoxifen and raloxifene have limits when it comes to patient acceptance (Goss et al., 2011). In addition, Aromatase inhibitors protect against contralateral breast cancers and show fewer side effects compared to tamoxifene in patients that are fighting with an early stage of cancer (Goss et al., 2011). With such progressive research it can predicted that the future of cancer prevention drugs is bright.
Testicular cancer (TC) is a major problem among male cancer patients but it is one of the most curable cancers (Richardson et al., 2012). The survival rates of 100% have been observed in patients that undergo appropriate therapy and proper treatment (Richardson et al., 2012). The same study has also concluded through statistical data that there is an increased risk of developing testicular cancer in low income population (Richardson et al., 2012). The treatment and therapy is available but it is recommended that men should get an annual examination of their testicles to catch the disease at an early manageable state.

Cancer impacts the physiology as well as psychology of the patients and their families to a large extent. The present discourse evaluates few causes of these commonly occurring cancers and their effects on the patients. Lung cancer is caused by excessive smoking.
If diet is the cause, then diet might also be the solution, especially a diet on vegetables. Vegetables have been known to have potent chemicals that prevent and even cure cancer. Medicinal plants and their preparations are currently being used to treat various diseases including cancer, which is the second leading cause of human deaths in the world (Govind & Madhuri, 2011).
Only a smaller number of cancers are caused by germline mutations, whereas the rest 90%, are related to somatic mutations and environmental factors (Sung et al, 2011). According to the World Health Organization (WHO), earlier reports on the effect of diet on cancer have specified that cancer rates might rise by 50% up to 15 million new cases by 2020 worldwide.
Many preventative measures have been proven effective at alleviating the chances of contracting a cancerous growth. Individuals must focus on a healthy diet that is in line with the USDA regulation. They should avoid smoking, alcohol consumption and drug use.
Cancer becomes harmful to the body when the damaged cells undergo uncontrollable division and form lumps called tumors, if the tumors continue to grow they can interfere with the circulatory, digestive and nervous systems and release hormones that may alter the bodily functions as well.
Cancer causes harm to the body when cells that are damaged divide without regulation to form tumors Some common types of cancer include breast cancer, brain cancer, leukemia (blood cancer), bone cancer, skin cancer, lung cancer, liver cancer, stomach cancer, and thyroid, just to mention a few.
Chronic atrophic gastritis is a predisposing factor for gastric cancer, such that it has become generally accepted that if there is no chronic atrophic gastritis present, there is no gastric cancer. (Genta, 2004). Heliobacter pylori infection has been
Phytochemicals found in fruits, vegetables and whole grain products have anti-oxidant capacity which enables it to prevent the malicious activities of free radicals that are known to harm the body. The US Department of Agriculture Food Guide Pyramid has attested to
Tumor cells are abnormally dividing cells that form lumps in any part of the body. They can be benign, which are normally non-threatening and do not spread to other body parts, or malignant, which can invade to
