what is an element of medical care that could increase a person's risk of cancer?

Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

Overuse of certain types of drugs is one of the elements of medical care that may increase the possibility of getting infected with cancer. For instance, in the United States, painkillers containing phenacentin have being banned due to their link with kidney cancer. Other medications such as diuretics and analgesic painkillers like asprin and ibuprofen have also being linked with kidney cancer. Ironically, some drugs that are used to treat cancer have strong compounds that are carcinogenic. Other things in drugs that may cause cancer include drugs with hormonal action and those with immunosuppressive effects.


Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
