Cancer is a type of disease that occurs as a result of uncontrolled cell proliferation and growth in any tissue or organ of the body. If the tissue where the cancer occurs is in the lower part of the uterus, it is called cervix (cervix) cancer and is a type of gynecological cancer.
Cervical Cancer Causes
Although the causes of cancer are not fully known, there are various triggering factors. These are hormonal disorders, age, menstrual irregularity, obesity, diabetes and various diseases. It occurs with a high rate of HPV infection.
According to the 2020 report of the International Agency for Research on Cancer, cervical cancer is the fourth most common type of cancer in women. In the world, 493,000 people are diagnosed with cervical cancer annually and 274,000 people die.
EFFECT OF PLASMA ON CELL
The destruction of cancerous cells occurs thanks to the synergistic effects of various combinations of electromagnetic field and UV rays on the cell, in addition to the reactive molecule species produced by the system, in addition to direct application. These compounds are generally as follows:
Selective apoptotic effect provided by CAP treatment;
It is mainly due to the fact that cancerous cells on the same tissue are more sensitive to RONS compounds compared to healthy cells.
The main reasons for cancer cells to be more susceptible in the literature are:
In general, it has been explained as the fact that protein membrane channels such as aquaporin, which allows water passage through cell membranes, are more in cancerous cells, the enzyme catalase is less, and the application is directed directly to the region where cancerous cells are concentrated (Zandsalimi et al., 2020).
