Kita selalu bertanya dan al-Quran sudah menjawabnya….

Kita bertanya: Kenapa aku diuji?
Quran menjawab, “Apakah manusia itu mengira bahawa mereka dibiarkan saja mengatakan ,”Kami telah beriman”, sedangkan mereka tidak diuji? Dan sesungguhnya Kami telah menguji orang-orang yang sebelum mereka, maka sesungguhnya Allah mengetahui orang-orang yang benar, dan sesungguhnya Dia mengetahui orang-orang yang berdusta.” (Surah al-Ankabut, ayat 2-3).

Kita bertanya: Kenapa aku tak dapat apa yang aku idam-idamkan?
Quran menjawab, “Boleh jadi kamu membenci sesuatu padahal ia amat baik bagimu, dan boleh jadi pula kamu menyukai sesuatu, padahal ia amat buruk bagimu. Allah mengetahui sedang kamu tidak mengetahui.” (Surah al-Baqarah, ayat 216).

Kita bertanya: Kenapa ujian seberat ini?
Quran menjawab, “Allah tidak membebani seseorang melainkan sesuai dengan kesanggupannya.” (Surah al-Baqarah, ayat 286).

Kita bertanya: Kenapa kita rasa Kecewa (frust)?
Quran menjawab, “Janganlah kamu bersikap lemah, dan janganlah pula kamu bersedih hati, padahal kamulah orang-orang yang paling tinggi darjatnya, jika kamu orang-orang yang beriman.” (Surah Ali Imran, ayat 139).

Kita bertanya: Bagaimanakah harus aku menghadapinya?
Quran menjawab, “Dan mintalah pertolongan (kepada Allah) dengan jalan sabar dan mengerjakan sembahyang, dan sesungguhnya sembahyang itu amat berat kecuali bagi orang-orang yang khusyuk.” (Surah al-Baqarah, ayat 45).

Kita bertanya: Kepada siapa aku berharap?
Quran menjawab, “Cukuplah Allah bagiku, tidak ada Tuhan selain daripadanya. Hanya kepadanya aku bertawakal.” (Surah at-Taubah, ayat 129).

Kita bertanya: Apa yang aku dapat daripada semua ujian ini?
Quran menjawab, “Sesungguhnya Allah telah membeli daripada orang-orang mukmin, diri dan harta mereka dengan memberikan syurga untuk mereka.” (Surah at-Taubah, ayat 111).

Kita berkata: Aku tak tahan!
Quran menjawab, “….dan janganlah kamu ber putus asa daripada rahmat Allah. Sesungguhnya tiada berputus asa daripada rahmat Allah melainkan kaum yang kafir.” (Surah Yusuf, ayat 12).

Kita berkata: Sampai bila aku akan merana begini?
Quran menjawab, “Kerana sesungguhnya sesudah kesulitan itu ada kemudahan. Sesungguhnya sesudah kesulitan itu ada kemudahan.” (Surah al-Insyirah, ayat 5-6).

Sudah! Jangan mengeluh lagi. Pergi baca Quran…. di situ ada jawapannya!

Interview with CTCA Orthopedic Oncologist

What is bone cancer?

As the supporting framework of the body, the bones provide structure and shape to the body, act as braces for muscles to produce movement, and protect internal organs. Most bones are hollow and consist of a hard outer portion (onto which calcium salts are deposited), a spongy inner tissue that contains bone marrow (which makes and stores blood cells), and cartilage at each end of the bone (which acts as a cushion between bones). The bone itself contains three types of cells: osteoblasts (which form new bone), osteocytes (which help maintain bone), and osteoclasts (which break down bone).

Primary bone cancer, or cancer that forms in the cells of bones, is rare. According to the American Cancer Society, primary bone cancers account for less than 0.2 percent of all cancers. While it can occur in any of the bones of the body, bone cancer occurs most often in the long bones of the arms and legs. Cancer that spreads (metastasizes) to the bone from another part of the body (e.g., breast, lung, prostate) is called secondary bone cancer. Under a microscope, these cancers resemble the tissue from which they originated.

Types of bone cancer

A cancer of the bone or soft tissue (e.g., muscles, cartilage, fat, connective tissue) is called a sarcoma. Primary bone cancers are sarcomas of the bone.

Some common types of primary bone cancer include the following:

* Osteosarcoma develops in growing bone tissue
* Chondrosarcoma develops in cartilage
* Ewing’s sarcoma develops in immature nerve tissue in bone marrow

Osteosarcoma and Ewing’s sarcoma tend to occur more frequently in children, adolescents and young adults between the ages of 10-25. Chondrosarcoma occurs more often in adults over 50. Some other types of primary bone tumors may include malignant fibrous histiocytomas, giant cell tumors, chordomas, and more.

Bone cancer symptoms

Bone cancer symptoms vary from person to person, depending on the location and size of the tumor, as well as other factors. The most common symptoms of bone cancer are pain and swelling in a bone or bone region (e.g., arms, legs, chest, back, ribs, pelvis). The pain may be worse at night or during activity, and can persist as the tumor grows.

Other bone cancer symptoms may include the following:

* Weakened bones
* Unexplained bone fractures
* Weight loss
* Fatigue, anemia (low red blood count)
* Night sweats, fever and/or chills
* Shortness of breath

NOTE: Some of these symptoms may be caused by conditions other than bone cancer. If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, you should see your doctor.

Bone cancer diagnosis and staging

If tests show that bone cancer is present, your doctor will need to know the stage (extent) of the cancer to plan the best treatment. The process of staging bone cancer is based on several factors, including tumor size, location, type, and grade (how aggressive the cancer is), and the presence or absence of metastasis. A commonly used system for staging bone cancer is called the TNM system, based on the size or extent of the tumor (T), the extent of spread to the lymph nodes (N), the presence of metastasis or spread (M), and the grade. The stages of bone cancer can range from 0 to IV.

Your doctor may use the following tests to diagnose and stage bone cancer:

* Physical examination to test muscle strength and reflexes

* Blood tests (e.g., CBC) to determine the level of a certain enzyme indicating the production of abnormal bone tissue

* Imaging tests (e.g., X-ray, PET/CT scan, MRI, bone scan) to show the location, size and shape of the bone tumor

* Biopsy (e.g., needle, incisional) to remove a sample of tissue from the bone tumor. This test can help determine whether it is a primary or secondary bone cancer.

Bone cancer treatments

Treatment for bone cancer depends on many factors, including the location, size, type, grade, and stage of the tumor, as well as your age, general health, and other factors. Treatments may be used alone or in combination. The goal of treatment may be to remove the cancer and/or to relieve symptoms.

The following are some bone cancer treatments:

* Surgery involves removing the tumor and surrounding area of normal bone

* Radiation therapy uses high-energy radiation to kill cancer cells

* Chemotherapy uses anti-cancer drugs to stop the growth of cancer cells

* Biotherapy/Immunotherapy uses the body’s own immune system to fight bone cancer and/or to lessen certain treatment-related side effects
