Risk factors for stomach cancer include: smoking, alcohol abuse, previous stomach surgery, blood type A, family history of stomach cancer, stomach polyps and Menetrier's disease.

An estimated 90 to 95% of stomach cancers are classified as adenocarcinomas.

Stomach cancer is found mostly in men and women who are 60 years of age or older.

Symptoms of stomach cancer, which are usually seen in advanced stages of the disease, include abdominal pain, nausea, vomiting, poor appetite, indigestion, and unexpected weight loss.

People with early stage stomach cancer, the tumor is small in size and has not spread or metastasized to any other major organs, are many times asymptomatic or have not exhibited any notable symptoms.

About 30% of skin cancers begin in existing moles.

The main cause of skin cancer is overexposure to sunlight. Although fair skin, freckles, blonde or red hair and blue eyes are also risk factors.

Protecting yourself from excess sun and sunburns as well as inspecting your body for any changes in your skin are ways to reduce the risks associated with skin cancer.

Can I tell the difference between melanoma and other forms of skin cancer?

Because you have sunburn, your risk of developing skin cancer has increased.

The most common signs/symptoms of sarcoma are: a new lump or a lump that is growing, abdominal pain that is getting worse, blood in your stool or vomit and black tarry stools.

The only way to diagnose soft tissue sarcoma is by biopsy.

Sarcomas can develop nearly anywhere in the body, including the legs, hands, arms, head, neck, chest, shoulders, abdomen, and hips.

Soft tissue sarcoma occurs when cancer cells form in the soft tissues that hold the body together.

Surgery, radiation, chemotherapy and targeted therapy medicines can be used to treat soft tissue sarcoma.

Prostate cancer develops mainly in older men and in African-American men?

The most common type of prostate cancer is adenocarcinoma.

Prostate cancer begins when cells in the prostate gland start to grow uncontrollably, but most prostate cancers grow slowly.

Prostate cancer is cancer that occurs in a man's prostate — the walnut-size gland in the male reproductive system.

Early prostate cancer usually causes no symptoms. Typically it is found by a PSA test or digital rectal exam (DRE).

Pancreatic cancer accounts for about 3% of all cancers in the US and about 7% of all cancer deaths.

Several types of vaccines for boosting the body's immune response to pancreatic cancer cells are being tested in clinical trials. Unlike vaccines against infections, the vaccines help treat, not prevent pancreatic cancer.

Surgery to remove pancreatic cancer is called a Whipple.

Inherited changes in genes such as BRCA2, p16 and the genes responsible for Lynch syndrome can increase a person's risk of developing pancreatic cancer.

Most pancreatic cancer cannot be prevented, but you can reduce your risk by maintaining a healthy weight, stopping smoking and limiting your alcohol intake

Age, obesity and family history are among the risk factors for developing ovarian cancer.

Ovarian cancer is often diagnosed in the early stages of disease.

Women typically experience symptoms of ovarian cancer around 6 to 12 months before they are diagnosed.

Is abdominal pain an early sign of ovarian cancer?

HIV positive patients are less likely to receive gynecologic cancer treatment or treatment that adheres to guidelines, resulting in lower survival rates.

Non-small cell lung cancer consists of more than 80% of all lung cancer cases.

Non-small cell lung cancer symptoms include chest/back pain, shortness of breath, chronic cough, and weight loss.

The risk factors for non-small cell lung cancer include tobacco, smoking, asbestos, radon, and inherited genetics.

Lung cancer is the second most common cancer type for both men and women.

The most common treatment options for non-small cell lung cancer include surgery, chemotherapy, radiation therapy, and immunotherapy.

The three treatment goals for myelofibrosis are to reduce symptoms, improve blood counts, and reduce the chance of the MPN progressing to acute myeloid leukemia (AML).

Treatment for myelofibrosis is based on when it was diagnosed.

Treatment is based on the outlook of cancer and symptoms.

Doctors use scoring systems to determine the prognosis of the cancer, which helps in the selection of treatment.

Watch and wait, also known as observation, is an option for low or intermediate risk myelofibrosis patients without symptoms, where treatment may start if symptoms start to appear.

Myelofibrosis is scarring of the bone marrow.

The most common symptom of myelofibrosis is severe fatigue.

Feeling full quickly when eating is not a symptom of myelofibrosis.

An enlarged liver or spleen may indicate to a doctor that myelofibrosis is present.

An abnormal blood test result can be an indication that myelofibrosis may be present, and will lead doctor's to do more testing.

There are two stages of myelofibrosis, which are prefibrotic (early myelofribsosis) and overt.

Prefibrotic myelofibrosis is less severe while overt myelofibrosis is more severe.

Common conditions associated with myelofibrosis include; anemia, high white blood cell count, high LDH level, and an enlarged spleen.

Prefibrotic myelofibrosis has major scarring (fibrosis) of the bone marrow.

A sign of overt myelofibrosis is if there are young blood cells in your blood that should be in your bone marrow.
