Top 5 Cancer-Causing Death

Cancer Awareness Month
Cancer is considered to be 2nd of the leading causes of death worldwide. (Source: Medical Daily). Though ways to treat this disease, either natural or modern means, are already available, only few were able to survive.

One of these survivors is Ledi who keep on struggling against Acute MyeoloidLeukemina. You check her story on my previous post or by going to the Braveheart Album in Facebook. Ledi’s case is considered rare and not considered as one of the top 5 deadliest cancer. According to WebMD here are the list of the deadliest cancer:

Lung Cancer (US deaths in 2014: 159,260)
About 1 of 13 men and 1 of 16 women have can have this. People at 65 or older are commonly victims of lung cancer.

Lung cancer’s common cause is smoking. Frequent exposure to chemicals like asbestos, arsenic, chromium, nickel, beryllium, cadmium, tar and soot can also increase the risk of getting lung cancer.

Colorectal or Colon Cancer (US deaths in 2014: 50,130)
About 1 of 20 people in US may get this type of cancer in their lifetime. Smoking, drinking of at least three alcoholic drinks a day and obesity are the most common cause of getting colon cancer. Age is also considered. As you get older, there is a high risk of getting this.

Breast Cancer (US deaths in 2014: 40,430)
It is estimated that 1 in 8 women had breast cancer. Women are not the only gender that are prone to this but men too (around 1 in 1000). Getting this usually happens after menopause. Obesity, dense breast, hormone replacement and exposure to radiation also contributes in developing breast cancer.

Pancreatic Cancer (US deaths in 2014: 39,950)
About 1 in 67 person may experience pancreatic cancer. Smoking, obesity and long-lasting pancreatitis are the most common causes of it.

Prostate Cancer (US deaths in 2014: 29,480)
Around 1 of 7 men who are in their 50s are prone to prostate cancer. However, reported cases of this were found in men who are older than 65.

Prostate cancer are common among African-American compared to whites, Asians or Hispanics.

Aside from the identified causes of each type, an individual may have high risk of getting cancer if it runs through the family or in their genes.
