Why does Cancer age a person so much so quickly?
I was a handsome guy back in January and nobody guessed me for my age. (As much as 20 years younger.) Now I look like an old withered man. My looks no longer match my young personality. Is it the lung cancer or & the chemotherapy?

It's all of it. Who cares what you look like though? I've seen some people who look great in the outside but are disgusting inside (poetically speaking).

The chemo.

well chemotherapy ! my grandfather had it.

i think it is mostly the chemo.

its your lung cancer,

Chemotherapy...the chemicals given are a poison, which are supposed to kill the Cancer out of your body, but has awful side effects.

Chemicals and Radiation

Its both, these are very debilitating happenings to your body.

There is a very close relationship between aging and degenerative diseases: the processes underlying aging inflict damage that increases susceptibility to disease; and many of the pathological agents and processes that are the direct causes of degenerative diseases also expedite, and are integral to, the aging process. An appreciation of this two way relationship and of the numerous, inextricable links between aging and degenerative diseases is critical to understand how to prolong life and sustain good health. The aging-disease relationship is particularly relevant to the role of spice-derived phytochemicals as many of the mechanisms through which these substances exert disease-preventing properties can also help to slow aging.

Many people will walk in and out of your life,
But only true friends will leave footprints in your heart
To handle yourself, use your head;
To handle others, use your heart.
Anger is only one letter short of danger.
If someone betrays you twice, it is your fault
Great minds discuss events;
Small minds discuss people.
He who loses money, loses much;
He who loses a friend, loses much more;
He who loses faith, loses all.
Beautiful old people are works of art.
Learn from the mistakes of others
You can't live long enough to make them all yourself.
Friends, you and me ... You brought another friend ... and we started our
group ... our circle of friends ... and like a circle ... there is no
beginning or end ... Yesterday is history.
Tomorrow is mystery. Today is a gift.

I am sure you still look young and handsome,don't worry:)

Because both cancer and cancer therapy are major physical, mental, emotional, chemical and biological stresses on the body. Stress ages people faster, a systemic stress like that even more so.

it's probably both. sorry to hear that you have cancer. People who love you will not even notice what you look like on the outside, they will see you for your spirit on the inside.

Its the toll on your body and STRESS, and WORRY. They can make you look 10 yrs older. When you loose those you will probably look younger again. It can easily show on your face. You are going through alot right now. When you get through it and life becomes back to more normal I think you will loose a few of those years you feel you have gained.

My daughter at age 4 had cancer. She looked like a little old lady so frail and skinny with no hair. At age 5 she weighed 23 pounds! She is now 16 and she looks a bit younger. She is tiny. I am 42 and have not had the treatments but the stress and worry of it all aged me 10 yrs!!! I use to also be guessed for much younger. Now I am guessed at my age...... Some days, and I have noticed this in others too, I look older than others depending on my stress level.

I think once you get through it you will be that vibrant YOUNG man once again.

God Bless and the best of luck to you in your trials! You will get better if you have faith and hope. They are your key medications.....

One more to add, just for good measure. Your still a handsome man. Age doesnt reflect that. In fact I think it adds to it on a man. If your beautiful inside, people will also find you beautiful outside. Your STILL you, don't let an evil demon like cancer rob you of it as well. *hugs*

I think most of the people on this forum who gave you advice have never been through chemo or cancer, so here is experience from someone who has been through it and KNOWS.

It easy to say that looks do not matter from outsiders on this forum and to tell us to get over it, but it's not that simple. This is a life altering event and it's hard, but you need to take it day by day and look ahead to good health and know that it's temporary.

Chemo is hard on you and yes, during chemo, I felt old and tired, but it is the treatment. It is harsh and it kills the cancer cells while killing the good cells. It can take you down and it changes your looks. It is not a time where most of us look good. I was one of them. As hard as chemo and cancer are, try to concentrate on getting well and fighting this beast.

I fought cancer two years and now I have been in remission over two years. During treatment, I felt and looked awful because of all the changes in my body (hair loss and weight gain because of Prednisone and so much more). However, I can say my determination to win this battle kept me going although I had days I did not want to look in the mirror and I didn’t. Now two years later, I've done everything to keep myself healthy and look healthy. I eat right, exercise and take care of myself. Most of all, I don’t stress anymore. Now, I feel and look great. Most people think I look younger than my age, but they wouldn't say that during chemo. Chemo will exhaust you and age you sometimes, so my advice is to fight, eat right, rest , take care of your body and don’t stress. It's temporary and before you know it, you'll be better than your prior self.

Chemo is no beauty treatment, but you need it to save your life, so concentrate on other things - your hobbies, your family, friends and your faith. Before you know it, chemo will be over and you'll be on your way to good health. Take it from a cancer survivor who knows.
