Cervical Cancer: Symptoms, Treatment, and Prevention

Cervical cancer is a source of concern for many women, considering it’s one of the most frequently diagnosed cancers among females. Although the mortality rate for this condition is in steady decline, cervical cancer is a real health threat that should never be ignored. Aside from receiving regular pap smears, a healthy understanding of cervical cancer is vital for prevention and early detection.

What is Cervical Cancer?

Cervical cancer tends to develop slowly inside the surface cells of the cervix. The cervix has two types of surface cells known as squamous and columnar. Squamous cells are where the majority of cervical cancers originate.

Cervical cancer is caused overwhelmingly by HPV (Human Papillomavirus). HPV is a commonly spread STD, taking various different forms and causing diverse effects for those afflicted. Some forms of HPV lead to cervical cancer and genital warts, other varieties of the illness prove to be harmless.

A Solution for Your Resolutions 

By now, you’ve already made your 2016 New Year’s resolutions and are looking forward to seeing some amazing results in months to come. Right? Unfortunately, most of us fail to keep our resolutions for more than 2 to 4 weeks. To help keep you on track and prevent the February drop-out rate, we’ve put together some great tips to help keep you motivated.

 

5 Tips To Successfully Keep Your New Year’s Resolutions

Most people remember lots of New Year resolutions that fell by the wayside and were soon forgotten. Sometimes the expectations were unrealistic and offered no incentive to succeed. If you are serious about making a change for the better this year, improving your health, earning more money, or learning new things, you can accomplish it by setting a realistic goal. Choose something you truly want to do, and use the following suggestions to reach your goal.

Don't Make a List of Resolutions

When you write out a list of resolutions, you are already headed for disappointment. Choose one thing that you want to add to your life, or a single change you want to make. Make a list of steps toward achieving your goal, and channel your energy into achieving it. You should also make a list of ways your success will enhance your life. Posting the list in a place where you will see it every day will improve your chances of sticking to your resolution.

Never Go Back

Don't make the mistake of revisiting failed resolutions, because your past attempt will sabotage the current one. Start fresh with a positive and realistic expectation of accomplishment, and you will meet your goal. Avoid negative resolutions because they seldom succeed.

Some recent Science Care donor contributions to the medical community

Surgical skills workshop for practicing surgeons. Topics of instruction include the teaching of a new procedure for endoscopic tunnel release. An endoscope is an instrument inserted into the body to examine the affected area. The goal of this learning is improved treatments for patients suffering from injuries and afflictions of the forearm and wrist.

A medical teaching university preparing students to practice healthcare. The program combines didactic learning with hands on application to improve understanding.

Procedures demonstrated include: ankle arthroscopy, talus OATS, and tendon reconstruction and repair techniques. The goals of this training are to reduce surgical recovery time and improve overall patient outcomes.

Pharmaceutical research regarding techniques improving drug delivery systems. By performing these studies, it is possible to evaluate new drugs or new formulations, and assess risk of exposure to a toxic compound without having to resort to animal models or prematurely expose human patients whose safety might be compromised. The result of these in vitro studies allows progression to human clinical trials.

 

 

 

 

Notes From Our Readers - What's Your Motivation?

" My mother passed away a month ago. Going through the funeral with visiting hours etc was traumatizing. Making those decisions about all that was involved while grieving was so stressful. I am a giver. After being a hospice volunteer for a few years, I knew I could do more after the last breath and for me, giving my body to science to continue helping others is a no brainer... Also, my son was killed in Iraq, I think if he could have, he also would have wanted to continue supporting others. I want to do this in memory and honor of my son, my mother and for those I can help in the future. - Margy from Arizona
