/ DRAW DETAILED MAP / Every third Czech cancer age and every fourth will die on it. The unusually "deadly" area in the country is the Pilsen region; on the contrary, it is the smallest phenomenon in the Prague-West district. Doctors are careful why they are.
The statistics from which they are frozen: one Czech every 20 minutes dies. The majority of victims are patients who successfully fought successfully. Their body usually fails within two years after completing the first treatment.
Cancer predominates predominantly on lungs, ovaries or prostate. "For example, malignant lung tumors end up with deaths in five years, up to 85 percent of cases," explains Dr Votruba, the first department for tuberculosis and respiratory diseases in the general hospital.
In approximately 60% of cases, ovarian carcinoma is returned to women, and about half of men are prostate tumors.
Reason? These tumors still fail to catch people in time. It can also play a role in plant-related factors or a type of treatment, "said Peter Bednarcik.
In contrast, breast cancer is very successful in treatment – the probability of returning a woman is only about five percent.
Health resort Pilsen
Nevertheless, there are regions where cancer is less dying. The data of the Institute of Health Information and Statistics include West of Prague or Příbram. The tumors will only inherit about two hundred people per hundred thousand inhabitants.
On the contrary, doctors in the Pilsen region have a high mortality rate. "We do not know the reasons, but it's true that Pilsen has long-standing tumors much more malignant than the rest of the republic," he said. Local people, in his opinion, are more likely to suffer from colon cancer, pancreas or kidneys.
According to the head of the Oncology and Radiotherapy Clinic of the University Hospital in Pilsen, radon can become one of the largest cancer incidents in the region. The soil in the Plzen region is full.
Radon is highly radioactive, even in lung cancer, it is also the second most common cause of the disease – immediately after smoking.
Doctors therefore call for prevention, which would at least once reveal tumors. They would be particularly involved in lung cancer. Studies in other European countries have shown that mortality will decrease by as much as a quarter. "In the Czech Republic, this would mean some 200 lives saved," Votruba said.
Several projections are already in progress. The department's manager has allegedly sent people home tests to detect colon cancer
