The treatment of some types of tumors may change radically in the future, although there are no breakthroughs in treatments for other types of diseases, the effectiveness of treatments may also improve. In addition to presenting the latest findings in cancer research, the latest issue of the Free National Journal of Cancer addresses skin protection for cancer patients, end-of-life care, and provides indicative cases in its reporting through patient stories.
Summer is a time of scientific dumping in cancer research, as the season traditionally begins with the Congress of the American Society of Clinical Oncology, one of the world’s most important medical forums, where hundreds of oncology research findings are published simultaneously. As noted by Editor-in-Chief Laszlo B. Bab, the international conference has been followed up for a decade and a half by the Hungarian Society of Clinical Oncology Symposium, where invited speakers present international findings to Hungarian specialists – Cancer Healing Magazine. This issue now discusses the benefits and limitations of using immunotherapies, colorectal cancer at a younger age, lung cancer treatments, and kidney and bladder cancer research reports. Recognized cancer researchers comment on the latest findings in tumor biology designed to understand the function of cancer cells.
Cancer and surgical, pharmacological, or radiological treatment can all have dermatological side effects, and regular skin cancer screening should be intensified in patients with cancer. The paper provides detailed guidance on practical patient care following an online patient forum organized by Heal with Us.
In addition to the physical and mental trauma, can you comfort a breast cancer patient when you wake up after breast removal surgery? How can product agents persuade conscious, rationally equipped patients to purchase devices worth hundreds of thousands of forints, “which can also coordinate water”? How can it be addressed if the cost of recovering from cancer at the age of 30 is the loss of the spontaneous ability to urinate and defecate? Responses in patient reports.
End-stage patients and relatives often turn to hospice care services too late, although professional end-of-life care, designed to reduce physical and mental hardship, can last for days or even months. The most important lesson from an article marking the 30th anniversary of the Hungarian Elderly Movement is that contacting a hospice service is not a concession to life, but one of the most important things a patient can do for himself or a relative.
