Breast Cancer Warning Signs

Breast cancer is the 2nd most common type of cancer diagnosed among women in the US. Fortunately, the number of deaths associated with this condition have been decreasing steadily due to the significant advances in the treatments as well as the breast cancer awareness programs that have made it possible to diagnose breast cancer at an early stage when the chances of a positive treatment outcome are the highest.

Cervical Cancer Symptoms

Cervical cancer occurs when previously healthy cells in a woman’s cervix (the passage between the uterus and the vagina) show abnormal changes such as growing and multiplying out of control. What causes it is uncertain, but it may be related to certain lifestyle and environmental factors as well as the presence of the human papilloma virus (HPV).
