The cancer is found only in 1 area of a single organ outside of the lymph system (IE). Stage II: The lymphoma is in 2 or more groups of lymph nodes on the same side of the diaphragm either above or below (the muscle that aids breathing and separates the chest and abdomen). Stage III: The lymphoma is found in lymph node areas on both sides of the diaphragm either above or below. The cancer may also have extended into an area or organ next to the lymph nodes into the spleen or both. Stage IV: The lymphoma has spread outside of the lymph system into an organ that is not right next to an involved node.
In 2014 the CDC reports that 4,115 women died from cervical cancer that was caused by the Human Papilloma Virus (HPV) (CDC.GOV, 2017). While other cancer is not preventable by protection of immunization, Cervical Cancer and Genital Warts is mostly preventable. We are raising our children in a time where the majority of our parents and grandparents are succumbing to different types of cancers, why wouldn 't we want there to be a law insuring every teenager is given this vaccine against this terrible disease despite religious, or personal ideas against vaccinations. Although my reason for this paper is to educate my peers on the extreme importance of getting this vaccine early as possible, it also ties into my choice of degree of Health Care
One woman dies of cervical cancer every 8 minutes in India. Following below the most recent statistics available for survival by the current staging system. Stage Relative 5-Year survival Rate 0 93% IA 93% IB 80% IIA 63% IIB 58% IIIA 35% IIIB 32% IVA 16% IVB 15% Why are some cancers diagnosed late? As we all know that late diagnosis ant late initiation of treatment lead to more chance of morbidity and mortality. In UK, around 25% of cancers are diagnosed through emergency admission to hospital and most of them have lower chances of survival compared to other patients.
It can happen to anyone of different age group. But older patient's are vulnerable as their bones gets porous, brittle and not strong. Thus further complications may occur. In these essay, i am going to talk about fall cases in elderly pertaining to the case scenario (Appendix 1). Fall cases has been on the rise for many decades.
Professionals, as parents of children, against the HPV vaccine believe that the vaccine is more risky and dangerous for children than the actual disease. In an article written by Dr. Kurt Perkins, DC, CCWP, he argues that the HPV vaccine given to girls 12 years of age to prevent cervical cancer is junk. He states that the average age of women getting cervical cancer is 50 and the vaccine is only good for 5 years in the body. Along with Dr. Perkins, Dr. Karen Smith-McCune, a gynecologist in San Francisco, CA, is very skeptical of the HPV vaccine. She knows that regular pap smears will be enough to find precancerous areas early and they can be treated.
A woman is said to be the light bulb in a family but what happens if she is unable to fulfill her roles and duties as a mother? Can we still say that a family stays happy when there is a lack of mother figure? One of the global health issues that mainly attacks women today is cervical cancer, a type of cancer that occurs in the cervix (a female reproductive organ that connects the lower part of a woman’s uterus to her vagina). Experts said that about 250, 000 women around the globe die of cervical cancer a year caused by the sexually transmitted human papillomavirus (HPV) which infects nearly 80% sexually active women. HPV infection commonly causes skin or mucous membrane growths (warts) on the different parts of the body.
Often times, fatal diseases don’t surface the minds of the average person. However, “approximately 38.5 percent of men and women will be diagnosed with cancer of any site at some point during their lifetime” (1), proving that it is far more prevalent than we think. So while cancer treatment may not seem relevant to a healthy person, it is still essential to be informed about options for medical care. One of the more common forms of is radiation therapy. In fact, approximately 50% of all cancer patients will go through this type of treatment (4).
According to Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates at least fifty percent of sexually active men and women will contract the human papillomavirus. In females some strains of HPV have been linked to cervical cancer. Pap smears have added the benefit of detecting pre-cancerous cells with causes other than HPV. The usefulness of the detection programs is enhanced by the long latency from HPV infection to
