“Oncology is a long-lasting problem of the humanity. The Neanderthals were the first ones to suffer from different forms of cancer and the earliest attempts to describe this disease were made in Ancient Egypt 1600 BC”- explains Serhii Odarchenko, the PhD in Medical Science and the Chief Doctor of the Ukrainian Center of TomoTherapyat the official website of the Center. As cancer continues to become the concern point of a growing number of Ukrainians,Serhii Odarchenko gladly agreed to conduct the meeting withthe students of KSPU that took place on 24May, 2017 at the Faculty of Foreign Languages, to tell more about the Center working procedure and share the recommendations that can help never to experience the misfortune of being a cancer patient.

The Ukrainian Center of TomoTherapy, that was founded in 2015,is a unique medical institution in Ukraine where TomoTherapy, the most accurate method of treating cancer, is used. In the Center you can find all the necessary modern equipment for reliable diagnostics of oncological diseases. The greatest specialists from all over Ukraine gathered here to treat as many people as possible by diagnosing tumors of the smallest sizes, irregular shapes and locations.

According to the fact that the Center is situated in Kropyvnytskyi, not all patients have the opportunity to visit it because of different reasons, as, for example, the health conditions, the Ukrainian Center of Tomotherapy has opened the consultation rooms to provide the informational support throughout Ukraine.

Serhii Odarchenko explained that among the most frequent reasons of cancer there are particular viruses, radiation, chemicals, heredity, hormones and diet. The risk factors that are likely to increase the number of cancer cells in our body are obesity, uncontrollable consumption of alcohol and tobacco, sun exposure, infections and pollution. That is why to stay outside this risk circle, we are better to follow some recommendations that will not only protect us from cancer, but also will help to join the squad of “healthy life-stylers”.

  1. Be lean. Obesity is one of the most frequently met cancer’s triggers. That is why taking control of your weight is a crucial point of this issue.
  2. Be physically active. Even the simplest morning exercises will help you always to stay energetic and healthy.
  3. Avoid sugary drinks. Sugar is known as the white death, that is why you should try all your best to reduce its consumption.
  4. Eat various vegetables and fruits. They are the greatest source of vitamins our body desperately needs.
  5. Limit consumption of red meat. It can become the reason of stomach cancer.
  6. Avoid alcohol. 2 glasses of wine for men and 1 for women will not make harm but the excess of this dosage is not useful.
  7. Avoid salty food. Salt clogs the ducts and fluid cannot leave the body. As the result, edemas develop.
  8. Try not to use supplements. The majority “advantages” of their usage are mythical.

As you can see a great number of these tips concern your eating habits, so try to analyze your diet properly and if you find that some of your food excesses do not look like it is desirable - change them! Remember: your health is in your hands.

But if you unfortunately happen to become a cancer patient, such institutions as the Ukrainian Center of Tomotherapy will not leave you to fight with this disease alone because as the motto of the Center tells: “Cancer is only a stage of life. We CAN overcome it together”.


Interesting fact:

The origin of the word cancer is credited to Hippocrates, who is considered the “Father of Medicine.” Hippocrates used the terms carcinos and carcinoma to describe tumors. In Greek, these words refer to a crab, most likely applied to the disease because the finger-like spreading projections from a cancer called to mind the shape of a crab.
