An Educational Approach To Patient Care

The study of cancer or oncogenesis in the human body in various forms is known in Medical Science as Oncology. Oncology has many areas of study, yet each area with all its behavioral uniqueness shares similar cellular behavior. There are different mechenisms involved with the various types of oncogenesis some examples effecting a large population of oncology patients include the following examples: ovarian cancer, breast cancer unless it is inflammatory is usually estrogen reactive, prostate is usually testosterone reactive and colon cancer is usually p-54 protein reactive.

Nevertheless, all nine billion human cells with their unique function experience the same response process also known in medical science as morphology this means that the cell, the cellular bodies or somal bodies begin to morph or change. The understanding of the etiology or cause, mechanism, morphology and clinical outcome of each oncogenesic disease process is very important in clarifying our understanding of how to arrest cellular oncogenesis and repair cells that have lost their integrity due to loss of the balance of monosacaride, lipids and proteins necessary for proper cellular communication, regulation and replication.

Instrumentation allows Doctors to examine disease process on many levels. Laboratory tests analyzing blood can detect cancer in its early stages and save millions of patients this test analyzes whether there is the presents of Carcinogenic Embryonic Antigens present in the body or CEA's . These tests are called CEA, CEA 125 (Ovarian Cancer), BRC (Breast Cancer), PSA (Prostate Cancer) and P-54 (Colon Cancer), these are a few types that affect large populations of patients and have the highest morbidity without early detection.

Discovering the cause or etiology of disease process with use of laboratory tests of blood and other body fluids allows us to examine biochemical conditions that may have facilitated changes in the body. The pathologist through the examination of fine needle biopsy, biopsy and microscope, can examine how much change has taken place and the number of cells being affected by these irregular or neoplastic cellular replications.

The use of laboratory test analyzes the chemical conditions that facilitate cellular injuries can be reversible or irreversible. Examining the stages of disease process in the cellular structure of oncology patients, can be achieved easily and economically, saving the lives of millions of patients each year through early detection and close, observation by the attending physician.


An accurate knowledge of the human cell, its components and the behavior of the cell structure during disease process is very important in preventing disease morphology.

Components of the cellular body include the following: cell membrane, secretory vesicles or breathing apparatus, flagellum containing microtubules, cilia, microvilli, all components of the cellular membrane; lysosomes, ribosomes, rough and smooth endoplasmic reticulum, golgi apparatus, mitochondria, centrioles, nuclear envelope, chromatin, nucleus, and nucleolus containing the DNA of the cell and the human body.

All of these cellular bodies or somal bodies are composed of the following three essential components: Monosacaride, lipids or phosphates and proteins. These are the three key components necessary for the structural cellular integrity or integrity of the cellular or somal bodies, common in all nine billion human cells in each unique cellular classification.


There are many mechanisms that cause disease process in the cell and it somal bodies. It is also very important to recognize genetic predisposition to developing cancer. There is genetic testing that can be performed especially when there are family histories of certain cancers and many insurance PPO's will pay for this testing if there is a history in the immediate family.

Through many years of clinical research medical scientists have observed that healthy life style changes have made many great improvements in diseases that afflict the human population, especially concerning cancer. The disease process unique to cells in their precancerous stage is the loss of integrity of the cell as it looses the components that are vital to the cells biochemistry causing disease pathology to begin.

The agents most common are bacteria, virus', mycotic agents and chemical pathogens which interrupt the necessary biochemistry of the cell and somal bodies. The cells as they are attacked by agents called pathogens release molecules of sugars know as monosacarides. Monosacarides are the most important component of the cell, because they facilitate the cells absorbtion of lipids or phosphates from glycolysis and without the interaction of monosacerides and lipids, glycoproteins can not be assimilated.

This is the primary reason for the loss of integrity in the human cell that facilitates disease process. Secondarily when there is a loss of monosacarides, the DNA of the cell is not replicated properly, glycoproteins are not regulated properly and NK or natural killer cells are not produced.

What happens when the DNA is not replicated exactly to its code? The cell produces more cells that are irregular, these irregular cells are called neoplastic, oncogenic or cancerous. The importance of regulating the production of glycoprotein is that some cancers are formed by an over production of glycoproteins. The importance of NK or natural killer cells also known as large granular lymphocytes constituting 10 to 15% of peripheral lymphocytes has a unique ability to lyse a variety of tumor cells, virally infected cells without previous sensitization.

Macrophages are produced from monocytes produced in the bone marrow and are a part of the mononuclear phagocyte system. The Dendritic Cells are very important in controlling immunodeficiency. T Cells constituting 60 to 70% of circulating peripheral lymphocytes produced in the Thymus and B Cells constituting 10 to 20% of the circulating lymphocytes.

The types of cellular bodies of the immune system are all activated by antigen specific markers or chemical peptide chains that activate these cells and secure immunity from all disease including various forms of cancer. This article does not include the antigen markers or chemical receptors involved in activating these specific cells involved in cellular immunity. These cells that are involved in immunity are greatly affected by the bodies ability to assimilate monosacarides, lipids and glycoproteins on a systemic level. The role the healthy immune system plays in recognizing cancer and disease cells is vast.

The narative provided here is provided to help people understand what is happening when someone they know has cancer. Their chance of recovery is higher when the condition is identified in early stages and properly addressed.

Following a needle biopsy my 21 mm diameter breast lump identified as PASH (pseudoangiomatous stromal hyperplasia). They said its not cancerous and to just return in six months. Should I have it taken out instead of waiting?
Doctor: Dear Barbra; Fibroid cysts are very common in women, fortunately you have taken steps to eliminate possible carcinoma. One of the reasons women develope fibroid is Iodine deficency combine with hormonal changes. If you make an appointment with me I can do a 24 hour urine collection and test your Iodine and halide toxin excretion levels. Then I can put you on Iodoral and your fibroids will improve, and eventually clear up over time. Reply
Barbara: You just put all my worries to rest! Thank you.
Doctor: Dear Barbra; Remember to follow with yearly breast exams and mamograms. Also do self exams monthy and buddy checks. I know several women who have sisters, they examine each other. Also be aware of discomfort and write it down, it may help your doctor detect hormone change.
