Q: How lifestyle cance impact on teenager
A: A significant number of young survivors of childhood cancers smoke, are physically inactive and/or don't use sunscreen, [ according to researchers at the Lombardi Comprehensive Cancer Center in Washington.While these behaviors can be a future cancer risk to adolescents who have not had cancer, they can pose special peril to those who have been treated for the disease, says lead author Kenneth
Tercyak.In many ways, survivors' health behaviors closely resemble those of their peer group. However, survivors are a special population due to their medical involvement – they've already been touched by cancer and have lived through it. Their cancer could return, and smoking might prompt another bout with cancer or other smoking-related illnesses.Experimenting with smoking, drinking, staying out late, not getting enough sleep and sexual experimentation to some degree is absolutely normal and age-appropriate for adolescents who are trying to form their own individual identity apart from their parents, instead of ending up with role confusion of who they are," ]
