Say No to Cervical Cancer!

Sometime back one of my teacher was diagnosed with , she was a very active lady and this made her life upside down! She had already crossed the initial stages and had to remove her uterus and undergo chemo!

As per New York Times Cervical cancer is the third most common cancer found in women in the world. This cancer is caused by viruses. If we found the disease in early stages it can be cured completely.

Even though there will not be any symptoms on the early stages we can find if there is any abnormality in our cervical tissues by a regular test.
During this test the doctor will take the tissues from cervix which is diagnosed under a microscope. If they found any abnormality in your cells they will refer for more tests and treatments like biopsy.

Some of the symptoms of cervical cancer includes:

Abnormal bleeding from vagina.
Pain and bleeding during intercourse.
Abnormal vaginal discharge.
Pelvic pain
Back pain.

I would suggest all the ladies out there to take a PAP test regularly and gentlemen, please take your ladies to the test,so that the cancer can be detected at early stages and can be treated.

Say no to cervical cancer!!

In men, here in the US, it's causing thousands of cases of throat cancer, the HPV. No joke.

I will definitely say no. I'm always sad to hear when a young woman gets it.

Oh yes, thousands of cases of throat cancer in men a year from HPV and oral sex. No joke.

This kind of women cancer is caused by poor hygiene from men. So I suggest to gentlemen to keep clean, so they do not need to take their ladies regularly to a PAP test.

There's yet another reason that boys, and not just girls, should be offered their HPV vaccines. If the family is opposed, that's fine. But I find it frustrating that men can both be carriers of HPV that is spread to their female partners and also suffer cancers related to HPV infection, but in many jurisdictions where a public vaccination program is offered they are excluded.

But, let's all remember, sex is still a good and healthy thing. Sure it's good to be wise about sex. But, do not fear sex.
