Cancer related fatigue and cancer cachexia are the consequence of endocrine T failure caused by persistent stress

Cancers related fatigue
This study researches the cause of tumor, cancer related fatigue (CRF) and cancer cachexia (CC), and the re-lationship among tumor and CRF and CC.
Carcinogenesis is consequence of failure of tissue development. Tumor originates from tissue regeneration. The tumor cell is normal incomplete diﬀerentiated cell that stop in diﬀerent phases of diﬀerentiation. Tumor promoter stimulates stem cell to proliferate. Carcinogen obstructs stem cell to diﬀerentiate. With tumor pro-moter and carcinogen, the tissue stem cells proliferate but cannot diﬀerentiate into mature cell, and form tumors. The disorder of biological signals cell proliferation and diﬀerentiation facilitates tumor development.
CRF and CC are consequence of endocrine hypofunction and failure caused by persistent stress. Nature factors and psychological factors stimulate organic stress. The significant change of stress is the activation of endocrine system. The persistent stress exhausts the capacity of endocrine glands or hormone receptors of target cells, and leads to endocrine hypofunction even failure. CRF and CC are clinical manifestation of endocrine hypofunction and failure.
Cancer is a local lesion, also is a systemic disease. As a local lesion, carcinogen obstructed stem cell to diﬀerentiate, developmental failure of local tissue forms tumor. As a systemic disease, cancer is related to natural physical, chemical, and biological factors, as well as negative spiritual factors. The material and spiritual factors induce persistent stress which eventually leads to endocrine hypofunction even failure and unbalance of homeostasis. The disorder of biological signals of cell proliferation and diﬀerentiation facilitates tumor devel-opment.
CRF and CC, as clinical manifestation of endocrine hypofunction and failure, have nothing to do with tumor size and type, but facilitate tumor development. CRF and CC are through all the course of systemic cancerous disease, and commonly precede tumorigenesis. Many patients have been found tumors because of symptoms of CRF and CC. Even if no tumor be found at that time, various tumors would be found in the follow-up.
