Cancer charity warns elderly people are missing out on vital treatment

A cancer charity has warned that elderly patients are missing out on vital treatment due to their age, which is contributing to "unacceptably poor" survival rates.

A damning report by Macmillan Cancer Support said in five years an estimated 13,645 people aged over 75 living in Kent will be diagnosed with cancer and there needed to be a more effective way of treating them.

Charity bosses said 'under treatment' such as not being offered surgery was one of a number of factors contributing to avoidable deaths among the older population.

"We know older people are less likely to receive cancer treatments such as surgery, radiotherapy and chemotherapy than younger people," said Macmillan chief executive Ciarn Devane.

"Often, this is medically Methenolone Enanthate Effects justifiable over treatment is just as undesirable as under treatment but we can't ignore the growing evidence which suggests that many older patients who could benefit from treatment are not being offered it.

"Assumptions about someone's ability to tolerate treatment, quality of life, or personal preferences should never be based on their chronological age.

"Two people of the Sustanon 250 10ml Vial same age may have very different needs and will cope with cancer treatments differently."

Predicted cancer diagnosis in over 75s for the next five years, based on previous numbers, are 1,690 in Medway; Thanet 1,500; Canterbury 1,465; Maidstone 1,190; Dover 1,055; Shepway 1,015; Swale 930; Sevenoaks 920; Tonbridge and Malling 865; Tunbridge Wells 830; Ashford 805; Gravesham 695; and Dartford 685

Macmillan is urging older cancer patients "Anadrol 50" to ensure they Oral Turinabol 10mg are getting the best possible treatment.

The charity said patients should go with a list of questions to medical appointments, request a copy of medical "Anadrol 50" notes to get further information about diagnosis and treatment, or call the Macmillan helpline 0808 808 00 00.

Mr Devane added: "We have a duty to treat people as individuals and give them the best chance of beating cancer, regardless of their age.

"Many Buy Jintropin people in their 70s, 80s and beyond can tolerate treatments given to younger people and can be cured of cancer."

A spokeswoman for NHS Kent and Medway stressed, however, that care and treatment for cancer patients was available to "Oxandrolone Powder India" everyone, regardless of their age.

"The number of people aged 75 or older dying from cancer has reduced in Kent and Medway since 1996," she Hgh Jintropin Avis said.

"This is thanks to investment and training to improve early diagnosis rates, treatment and care of cancer patients and closer working with partners, including Macmillan.

"Care and treatment for cancer patients is available to everyone, regardless of their age.

"In most cases, older patients present to their GP during an advanced stage of the disease and usually with other conditions, which makes treating the disease more challenging. "This is why it is so important that people are aware of the early signs and symptoms of cancer to ensure they are diagnosed earlier. Cancer can be treated more successfully if detected earlier and this could save the person's life."

The spokeswoman said NHS Kent and Medway was running a campaign to ensure women older than 70 were aware of the symptoms of breast cancer.

"Women in this group are in one of the most at risk groups of developing the disease, which is why we are also encouraging women older than 70 to ensure they continue to request their NHS mammogram (breast x ray) every three years, even if they are not routinely invited."

She added: "Patients are actively involved in the development and delivery of cancer services through a partnership with the Kent and Medway Cancer Network and the Kent and Medway Service Users' Partnership to ensure patients' voices are heard."
