The second and third parts (the first part) of the narration about new growths and cancer in particular will be devoted to "ordinarier" problems — namely to diagnostics and treatment, and also it will be a little told about the most often found types of onkologiya.
At once I will tell that this post was given me strongly more difficult, than the first part as not absolutely corresponds to my specialization. But as I was asked to write about it, I tried.

Diagnostics


In Russia and the former republics of the USSR the term "oncological vigilance" introduced in 1948 by Savitsky A.I. for the first time is widely used., but its modern determination belongs to 1979, and it was entered by Peterson B. E. as "oncological literacy". It includes 5 points:

1. Knowledge of clinical symptoms of malignant tumors at early stages.
2. Knowledge of precancer diseases and principles of their diagnostics and treatment.
3. Careful inspection.
4. The exception is unreasonable optimism — on the contrary, the doctor is obliged to think of a possibility of an atypical course of a disease.
5. Knowledge of the principles of the organization of the oncological help and the direction of the patient with the found or suspected tumor in specialized oncological institutions.

Secondly, we are threatened by the beginning careerists who could settle successfully after end of the first contract (read: received money, and the client did not condemn them for development of a useless product). Sometimes they even manage to construct career, having managed to repeat this way several times.
And at last, to eat "Uslozhniteli", or "Megareshateli" (to find successful gromkozvuchny transfer of the word "Complicators", it was not possible therefore — "Megareshateli". — a comment of the translator), one more party which entices the best of us to join them, even only on one or two micro projects.

There are people who so deeply wallowed in solutions of Mega-problems that they as if purchased a certain sixth sense: capability to find Mega-problems ("a solution which creates one more problem in the course of a solution of a real problem") in any place.

Having for the first time heard the name Lupin I remembered an anime about the cheerful aristocrat pilferer at once though there the main character was called Lyupen and it just coincidence.
