鼻咽癌可疑症狀

據資料顯示,鼻咽癌屬本港五十歲以下男性組群的頭號常見癌症,臨床上不少患者都正值盛年,甚至是肩負家庭經濟重擔的一家之主。事實上,鼻咽位置隱蔽,癌變早期病徵不明顯,到出現耳鳴丶唾液帶血絲,甚至視力不受影響時,癌細胞往往已擴散。

據醫生臨床觀察所得,在確診患鼻咽癌的個案中,僅有10%是在早期階段被發現患病; 其餘在較後期被確診的人士,分別是因出現可疑病徵如頸部淋巴結腫大(50%) 丶鼻雙關症狀如鼻塞丶流鼻血或唾液帶血絲等(30%) ,以及耳雙關症狀如中耳積水丶耳鳴等(20%) ,經醫生進行檢查後才證實患上鼻咽癌。當病人出現頸部淋巴結腫大的症狀時,代表癌細胞已開始轉移; 亦有一些較嚴重的擴散性鼻咽個案,癌細胞「蝕穿」顱底骨,影響面部神經線導致面部神經痛,或是侵襲眼球神經,導致患者視力受影響,例如出現重影等。當癌細胞出現遠端轉移,有機會侵蝕骨骼丶肺部以至肝臟等,治療難度將進一步提升。事實上,第一期鼻咽癌的治癒成功率可逹九; 隨著病情演進,第二期及第三期患者的治癒成功率分別下降至八成及六成; 如第四期的鼻咽癌出現轉移,患者的平均存活期更只有約六個月。

對耳鼻喉科專科醫生而言,若發現鼻咽癌雙關的可疑症狀,會安排患者接受「內窺鏡檢查加組織抽檢」的常規測試組合。醫生可能會建議高風險患鼻咽癌的人士,例如有強烈家族病史 (如直系親屬曾患有鼻咽癌)丶曾出現鼻咽癌症狀者等等,安排接受抽血測試,檢驗EBV-IgA (EB病毒抗體) EBV DNA 指數。然而整體來說,這兩類測試仍有機會出現「假陽性」或「假陰性」的錯誤結果,因此有機會混淆患者的治療決定。

今年本港率先引入「無痛鼻咽癌細胞基因測試技術」,由醫生以特製刷子經測試者口腔進入鼻咽掃拭,採集所需要的鼻咽表層細胞樣本後,再以定量聚合酶鏈鎖反應 (Q-PCR) 技術檢驗樣本的EBV DNA指數,準確度達99%

    With havin so much written content do you ever run into any problems of plagorism or copyright infringement? My website has a lot of exclusive content I’ve either created myself or outsourced but it appears a lot of it is popping it up all over the internet without my permission. Do you know any solutions to help prevent content from being ripped off? I’d truly appreciate it.

    Hey! Quick question that’s entirely off topic. Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly? My site looks weird when viewing from my apple iphone.

    I’m trying to find a template or plugin that might be able to correct this issue. If you have any recommendations, please share. Appreciate it!

    Hi there this is kind of of off topic but I was wanting to know if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML. I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding knowledge so I wanted to get advice from someone with experience. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
