Prior to the development of a disease, Preventive Medicine enables early detection of signs and symptoms of diseases; if logical measures are taken, an outbreak i.e the development of a disease may possibly be avoided... The disease becomes incurable and chronic... Since the healing of serious illnesses is only effective as long as the patient is not yet seriously affected, the concept of healing should be redefined... The basic principle can be illustrated particularly well by the example of a tumor, but applies to all diseases... It follows, that prevention, i.e. the early detection of disease, is the most effective method to combat disease... Since many predisposing factors for disease development are already defined during embryonic development, a lot of time is left to carry out successful prevention... Physical exams - with the help of equipment - allow an assessment of a patient's condition at the time of the investigation... If a more accurate assessment of the disease risk in healthy patients is desired or the prognosis of a particular course of a known disease with known genetic factors favoring the disease is suspected, genetically predisposing factors should be checked... This is done by means of molecular genetic testing of possibly afflicted genes in the DNA of the patient... After creating an exact genetic fingerprint, worldwide comparisons of the genetic fingerprints among patients with the same or similar changes can be performed and conclusions can be drawn and predictions can be made... For this reason, human genetic consultations are prescribed by a specialist in human genetics before performing predictive diagnostics on healthy patients... In addition, the data serves as a basis for life style consultation to avoid specific hazards for which the body of the individual patient holds inadequate compensation mechanisms... Personalized exercise and nutrition concepts help patients to remain healthy.

Concept - pathogenesis of renal cell cancer. Vulnerable residual stem cells, which, after being inflicted by damaging effects, do not have appropriate repair mechanisms and are therefore transformed into so-called tumor stem cells. In the presented model, the vulnerability of the cells is already genetically determined and thus theoretically predictable. After initiation of tumor growth, healing can only be achieved if no significant metastasis has occurred and later through the removal of the tumor. Partial control of metastasis by the body's immune system is suspected.

Figure 1: Concept - pathogenesis of renal cell cancer. Vulnerable residual stem cells, which, after being inflicted by damaging effects, do not have appropriate repair mechanisms and are therefore transformed into so-called tumor stem cells. In the presented model, the vulnerability of the cells is already genetically determined and thus theoretically predictable. After initiation of tumor growth, healing can only be achieved if no significant metastasis has occurred and later through the removal of the tumor. Partial control of metastasis by the body's immune system is suspected.

Mentions: Prior to the development of a disease, Preventive Medicine enables early detection of signs and symptoms of diseases; if logical measures are taken, an outbreak i.e the development of a disease may possibly be avoided. If the possibility of curing a disease is missed, only the treatment and relief of symptoms remains. The disease becomes incurable and chronic. Since the healing of serious illnesses is only effective as long as the patient is not yet seriously affected, the concept of healing should be redefined. Thus, the removal of a small tumor, the patient hasn't yet noticed, could be considered to fall into the category of preventive medicine (see Figure 1). The basic principle can be illustrated particularly well by the example of a tumor, but applies to all diseases. It follows, that prevention, i.e. the early detection of disease, is the most effective method to combat disease. Since many predisposing factors for disease development are already defined during embryonic development, a lot of time is left to carry out successful prevention.
