As with many other cancers, the severity of uterine cancer is determined by its stage. The earlier it’s caught, the more likely you will become a cancer survivor.

A uterine cancer diagnosis is only the beginning of your education about your cancer. You and your doctor will also talk about staging your cancer.

This means that your medical team wants to know how far cancer has spread.

In many cases, your doctor will not be able to stage your cancer until you have had a hysterectomy to remove your uterus.

There are 4 main types of cancer that target women; Breast cancer, Cervical cancer, Ovarian Cancer, and Uterine cancer.

Uterine cancer begins in the uterus (or womb), the pear-shaped organ that carries a developing baby during pregnancy.

The most common type of uterine cancer is endometrial cancer. It grows in the lining of the uterus, known as the endometrium.

The other types of uterine cancer begin in the supporting connective tissue and muscle cells of the uterus.

In the United States, uterine cancer is the fourth most common cancer in women. It is also the most common cancer of women’s gynecological cancers.

Thyroid cancer is not a common disease, can occur in anyone and even though it requires adequate treatment, unlike other types of cancer the thyroid can be cured most of the time.

Although thyroid cancers are more common in females, males tend to have a greater risk than females for cancer occurring.

Thyroid cancer includes many types of cancers, the most common types are papillary, follicular or mixed papillary and follicular forms and on the other hand, the less common types that affect the thyroid are medullary cancer, anaplastic cancer, and lymphoma.

Thyroid cancer is a cancer originating from follicular or parafollicular thyroid cells.

The most effective management of aggressive thyroid cancers is surgical removal of thyroid gland (thyroidectomy) followed by radioactive iodine ablation and TSH-suppression therapy.

Chemotherapy or radiotherapy may also be used in cases of distant metastases or advanced cancer stage.

Five year survival rates are 98% in the United States.

Most often the first symptom of thyroid cancer is a nodule in the thyroid region of the neck.

However, many adults have small nodules in their thyroids, but typically under 5% of these nodules are found to be malignant.

Despite the negative odor that clings to the quite idea of cancer due to the fact of its incurable nature, cancer can be taken care of in its first stage.

Throat cancer is one of the most frequent types of cancer and more than 25,000 people in the USA are diagnosed with throat cancer every 12 months.

This type of cancer can be traced to excessive cigarette smoking. Certain pollutants also speed up the growth of tumors on the larynx or pharynx.

Some folks are sensitive to specific pollutants and if these people function in places where the presence of the pollutant(s) exists, they are exposed to the danger of contracting throat cancer.
