/ TAKE A DETAILED MAP / Each third Czech gets cancer and dies on it in all four. The unusual-deadly aksine region in the country is the region of Pilsen, on the contrary, the smallest location in the Prague-West region. Doctors notice why.
The statistics they were frozen in: Czech dies every 20 minutes. Most of the victims have successfully fought successfully. They usually give up within two years after completing the first treatment.
Cancer predominantly prevails over the lungs, ovaries, or prostate. "For example, malignant lung tumors result in deaths within five years, up to 85 percent of cases," explained the Department of Tuberculosis and Respiratory Diseases of the General Teaching Hospital. Votruba.
Ovarian carcinomas return to women in about 60% of cases and prostate tumors re-expose about half of men.
Reason? These tumors cannot catch people in time. De Weed factors or the type of treatment used can also play a role, Peter said Peter Bednardcik.
In contrast, the success of breast cancer treatment is high – about five percent of a woman returning back.
Patient in Pilsen region
Still, there are regions where cancer is less dying. Among the data of the Institute of Health Information and Statistics are Prague West or Püsíbram. Tumors will reach about two hundred people per hundred thousand people.
On the contrary, doctors in the Pilsen region have a large mortality rate. "We do not know the reasons. However, it is true that in the long term, Pilsen has much more malignant tumors than the rest of the republic. Moreover, he is dying there," said Ladislav Dušek, Head of the Institute of Health Information and Statistics. According to him, people in the region mostly suffer from colon cancer, pancreas or kidney cancer.
According to the head of the Oncological and Radiotherapy Clinic of the University Hospital in Pilsen, radon may be one of the highest cancer cases in the region. Plzen place is full.
Radon is heavily radioactive even in lung cancer and is the second most common cause of the disease immediately after smoking.
Physicians therefore call for prevention which will reveal tumors at least once. They would be involved in lung cancer. Studies in other European countries have shown that the death rate will drop by a quarter. "In the Czech Republic this will mean about 200 saved lives," Votruba said.
More impressions are already applied. It was reported that the administration of the department sent home tests to people to detect colon cancer
