As part of the digestive system, the stomach is a hollow organ in the upper abdomen, under the ribs.

Food moves from the mouth through the esophagus into the stomach. When placed in the stomach, the food will turn into a liquid from the digestive juices and then gets pushed by muscles in the stomach wall into the small intestine.

Stomach cancer, also known as gastric cancer, is a kind of cancer that takes place in any part of the stomach. Stomach cancer causes a large sum of people to die worldwide every year.

So what actually causes Stomach Cancer?

Stomach cancer or gastric cancer is cancer that develops from the lining of the stomach.

Early symptoms may include heartburn, upper abdominal pain, nausea, and loss of appetite.

Later symptoms may include weight loss, yellow skin, vomiting, difficulty swallowing, and blood in the stool among others.

The cancer may spread from the stomach to other parts of the body, particularly the liver, lungs, bones, lining of the abdomen and lymph nodes.

The most common cause is infection by the bacteria Helicobacter pylori which accounts for more than 60% of cases. Certain type of H. pylori have greater risks than others.

The skin is the largest organ of the body but is almost always ignored or abused.

The skin plays a number of important functions that can only be maintained with a proper skin care regimen. For one, it is the skin that gives us the sense of touch that sends powerful signals to the brain.

Likewise, it serves as a protective barrier that prevents harmful bacteria to enter the body at any time. Perspiration also brings out excess water or salts away from the body via the skin. At the same time, sweating is the skin’s way of maintaining the body’s normal temperature.

Skin cancers (skin neoplasms) are named after the type of skin cell from which they arise.

Basal cell cancer originates from the lowest layer of the epidermis and is the most common but least dangerous skin cancer.

Squamous cell cancer originates from the middle layer, and is less common but more likely to spread and, if untreated, become fatal.

Melanoma, which originates in the pigment-producing cells (melanocytes), is the least common, but most aggressive, most likely to spread and, if untreated, become fatal.

Most cases are caused by over-exposure to UV rays from the sun or sunbeds. Treatment is generally via surgical removal.

Prostate cancer is a disease of the prostate gland, marked by the cells in the prostate gland growing and developing at an abnormal rate. It grows at a pace that deviates from normalcy.

If left untreated, the defective cells may spread to other organs of the body and may cause havoc in the system. The risk factors are related to age.

Age is the main factor for developing this disease. The treatment may pose to have certain side effects, such as impotency and Erectile Dysfunction. However, when the disease is detected in the prodromal stages, controlling and eradicating this disease is possible.
