Question and answer
Discuss critically 5 ways in which cancer(breast,lungs,skin,stomach) impact on the teenager
While recognizing the potentially devastating impact of cancer at any age, [ the research findings suggest a distinct effect in adolescence and young adulthood resulting from a disrupted biography at a critical transitional moment in the life trajectory that can have a chronic effect after the acute stage of the illness is passed. An age-appropriate approach to the care of young people with cancer that takes into account the distinct effects of life stage in this age-group can mitigate the negative impact on life trajectories and maximize the chances of adherence and a return to normal life
after recovery. Cancer is rare in teenagers and young people, with those aged between 15 and 24 years accounting for less than two percent of all cancer cases worldwide. But the rates are twice as high as they are in children and the disease is the most frequent cause of death in this age group after accidents. The long-term outcome for some tumor types is thought to be relatively poor compared with that for children and adults and delay in diagnosis is thought to be one of the key factors in this. The problem of diagnostic delay is widely acknowledged but is perhaps the least understood aspect of the young person’s cancer journey.Parents are naturally shocked and devastated when their son or daughter is diagnosed with a life threatening illness such as a cancer. As a result they can feel angry and powerless and say that would much rather have the cancer themselves than see their child with the disease. Parents may try to compensate by trying to do everything they possibly can for their son or daughter. One young woman got a particular insight into how helpless you feel when someone you love is diagnosed with cancer when her mother also needed treatment for her own cancer. They became even closer as a result of the shared experience. ]
