Storyboard Text

  • Dr. Ali arrives home with his friend Andrea and wishes her a good day.
  • Well have a nice day Andrea!
  • Goodbye Dr. Ali but before you leave, I still want to know the difference between cancerous and non cancerous cells and what organs and tissues are affected by different types of cancers
  • This may take a while explaining why don't you come in
  • Well you see there are many differences but a couple of differences are that cancer cells divide faster and more uncontrollably than normal cells and that cancer cells are larger than normal cells, but of course these are only some differences.
  • Well depends what type of cancer you are talking about but since I know a lot about Colon Cancer, I'll use it as my example.
  • Oh that's very interesting. What about the organs, tissues and systems that are affected by cancer, what happens to them and where does the cancer occur in the body.
  • Colon cancer hits the major organs in the digestive system. It is the 3rd most commonly diagnosed cancer in Canada. It is also the 2nd leading cause of death from cancer in men and 3rd in women in Canada
  • I did not know that. How can you prevent it and how can you treat it?
  • 2 main ways you can lower your chances of getting diagnosed is having a good eating habit as obesity can increase your risk of colon cancer. Aspirin can be taken to lower your risk but is usually recommended by your doctor as it can have negative side effects on your body.
  • Are there any technologies used to diagnose and treat colon cancer?
  • There are many technologies that can diagnose colon cancer such as a CT scan, biopsy, MRI, etc.. Some technologies that can treat colon cancer are radiation therapy, surgery, Gastroenterology, etc.
  • Together we can spread support and awareness for colon cancer. The end
  • Wow I learned l a lot from our conversation and I hope I can pass it on to others to cause awareness and support. Have a good day doctor.
