BIRTAMOD —  In an unprecedented successful medical milestone in the country’s medical history, surgeons have extracted 10 kg tumour from a teenager’s stomach at Om Sai Pathivara Hospital based at Bhadrapur of Jhapa.

The tumour was taken out from the abdomen of an 18–year–old teenage girl of Jyamirgadhi area of Mechinagar–15 through a surgical operation held with telescopic technology.

The girl was rushed to the hospital after experiencing sudden and acute pain in her stomach on Friday. Her stomach had bloated abnormally and the doctors’ team took the mammoth task on the same day.

Red meat, white bread and sugar-laden drinks might increase risk of colon cancer

Heavy diet like red meats, refined grains, white bread and sugar-laden drinks might increase long-term risk of colon cancer, a new study suggests.

These foods all increase inflammation in our body, and the inflammation they cause is associated with a higher chance of developing colon cancer, according to pooled data from two major health studies appeared in JAMA Oncology journal.

According to researchers, a diet high in foods with the potential to cause inflammation, including meats, refined grains and high-calorie beverages, was associated with increased risk of developing colorectal cancer for men and women.

Basically, what makes for a healthy diet overall also appears to promote a cancer-free colon, said senior researcher Dr. Edward Giovannucci. He is a professor of nutrition and epidemiology at Harvard TH Chan School of Public Health in Boston.

“It’s consistent with what we already recommend for a healthy diet in general,” Giovannucci said, adding “I see that as good news. We’re supporting the current evidence, and not telling people to do something completely different from what they’ve been told.”

For the study, conducted by Fred K Tabung from the Harvard TH Chan School of Public Health in Boston, the team analysed 1,21,050 male and female health care professionals, who were followed for 26 years in long-term studies. The researchers completed the food questionnaires about what they ate, on the basis of which data analysis was done last year.

The scores were based on 18 food groups characterised for their inflammatory potential and were then calculated from the questionnaires given to participants every four years.

The results indicated that higher scores reflecting inflammation-causing diets were associated with a higher risk of developing colorectal cancer in men and women.

Previous studies have linked diet factors with colon cancer, but there’s been no clear explanation why that might be, he added.
