Major cancer in women, how to survive?

Major cancer in women, how to survive? Cancer is the control of cells in any part of the body, growing more abnormally than in normal language, which hinders the function of normal cells. It periodically spreads such abnormal cancer cells throughout the body to prevent the functioning of many organs and leads to death.

Cancer continues to be a major health challenge for all human lives today. Overcoming this challenge, medical science has put into practice some of the methods that many have won in the fight against cancer. Today, I am highlighting the two preventive measures taken by women and the prevention measures issued by the Cancer Relief Society / World Health Organization.

According to data released at the end of2018 by the International Agency for Cancer Research (IARC), breast cancer was found to be the most common cause of breast cancer among women worldwide, accounting for 25.4 percent of all breast cancer sufferers. The other three major cancers include colorectal (large intestine) and lung cancer and ovarian cancer.

According to the data, compared to cancer of other parts of the female body, these three cancers account for about 5 percent of the number of women suffering. Fourth and comes in our area of ​​importance, uterine cancer or cervical cancer. Other cancers seen in women include uterus, ovaries, thyroid, stomach, liver, pancreas, kidney, skin, veins, ray ligament, sore throat, mouth cancer, and lymphoma, leukemia.

Ovarian cancer

Human papilloma is a bacterium that causes the disease at a declining rate in the developed world. The causes of this infection and the risk of developing cancer in women in the developing world are: low marriages, early pregnancy, multiple pregnancies, weak economic / social conditions, sexual contact with multiple men or similar sex life, weak immune system, Long term contraceptive mill use, smoking, etc. In addition, the inability to strictly enforce the vaccine against this cancer has led to the increasing number of victims in our area.

Although no symptoms appear in the primary stage, periodic pains such as bleeding, white blood flow, lumbar pain, as well as advanced stage cancer can spread to other organs and many organ-related symptoms. Awareness has been put forward as the main way to prevent this, which is to minimize risk while preventing the above mentioned risk factors.

According to the guidelines issued by the World Health Organization, the provision of free HPV vaccine to 9 to 13 year-old girls has already been implemented by schoolchildren, but experts say that due to lack of proper consciousness, it is not effective. Developed countries are moving towards eradicating cervical cancer and in recent times the provision of vaccine to male children has also come to us, and we are lagging behind.

These are preventive measures. One of the methods to be adopted for timely disease detection is the Pap smear screening test. Following are guidelines for the Cervical Cancer Prevention Guide issued by the American Cancer Society:

1. Women in the age group of 21 to 29 years will have Pap       smear test every 3 years.

2. After 30 years, HPV test should be done every 5 years along with Pap test for up to 65 years.

3. Those who are at high risk of cancer, continue to follow-up and perform other tests as per their expert opinion.

4.After 65 years of age, no screening test should be done in case of any abnormality during regular examination in last 10 years.

In this case, screening, HPV test results, abnormal and in case of related symptoms, detailed physical examination as well as other examinations such as VIA, colposcopy, cerviography, curettage-biopsy, hysteroscopy and other organs are suspected.

Breast cancer

Breast cancer is almost synonymous with cancer around the world. Early symptoms of breast cancer include regular pain in the breast and pelvis / appearance of tumors, changes in the skin of the breast, changes in nipple size etc.

Various studies have confirmed the cause of the cancer and the risk of developing it, although the exact cause of this cancer, starting from the breast milk gland, duct (other tubes that bring milk to the breast), and other tissues, is unknown.

The reasons for increasing the risk of breast cancer are:

1) increasing age

2) family background of cancer BRCA1 / BRCA1 gene, these are transmitted from one generation to the next, and the risk of breast cancer is extremely high in these women

3) thick breast

4) onset of menstruation at an early age and no longer menstrual periods, do not breastfeed the baby or breastfeed for less than one year

5) uncontrolled body weight

6) drinking, drinking alcohol

7) effects of radiation

8) Hormone treatment, prolonged intake of the contraceptive mill etc.

Keeping yourself away from such risky habits, such as regular exercise and maintaining physical fitness, greatly reduces risk. In addition, with appropriate advices as advised by experts with advancing age, they can reduce the risk of cancer and can remain healthy after timely diagnosis and complete treatment. Post-risk identification, the practice of performing surgical procedures can be found in developed countries, even before the onset of the disease, at the risk of genetically based women. According to the guidelines released by the World Health Organization, the following are ways to prevent this cancer:

1) Raise awareness of the early symptoms of breast cancer and contact the health institution for the diagnosis of the disease as soon as possible.

2) Screening Tests: These include breast examination and mammography. Mammography is the only proven useful screening test for breast cancer. With the trend of increasing Whole Body Checkup, we need to spread awareness about such screening tests today.

3) Other investigations: ultrasound / MRI / tomosynthesis / biopsy etc.

After the identification of the cancer through the tests, medical methods are adopted based on its type, staging, hormone sensitivity, age, etc., which include surgery, radio / chemotherapy, hormonotherapy.


Nearly seventy percent of deaths from cancer caused by hearing loss are unknown to us. Awareness about its prevention measures, such as manipulation of daily life for risk reduction, such as diet / physical exercise and regular check-ups are the norm. The sooner the disease is identified, the faster it can be relieved and healthy.
