Marge Simpson was born in 1979. In 2007 she found a lump in her left breast. She went to the hospital for a check up where she was diagnosed with left breast invasive ductal carcinoma stage 3 (T1,N2,M0), ER positive, HER2 negative. For the diagnosis of breast cancer it is necessary to start with a breast examination and mammography to screen for malignancies. Tissue biopsy is the definitive method and sentinel lymph node biopsy is a critical step in staging and treatment in breast cancer.
Chemotherapy may be given to a cancer patient to keep the cancer from spreading or to prevent the cancer cells from dividing at a fast rate. Chemotherapy may also be given to a patient to help relieve symptoms such as pain from the cancer. Chemotherapy is a great discovery and has helped save many lives but it can be very invasive and cause unpleasant side effects. Chemotherapy is designed to kill any cells that are growing at a fast rate even if they are not cancerous, this can lead to great exhaustion and feeling sick. Nausea, vomiting, hair loss, and sickness are common side effects of Chemotherapy that cannot be prevented because every human body handles different drugs differently.
There are two types of cervical cancer squamous cell carcinoma and adenocarcinoma. Between 80 and 90% of all cervical cancer is squamous cell carcinoma. I think that it is important to know that only some women with pre-cancers of the cervix will develop cancer, but there is always that chance that it could be you.
Wk 7│As 1: Cervical, Ovarian, and Uterine Cancer: A Comparison 1 Cervical, ovarian, and uterine cancer can affect women from all walks of life. Cervical cancer is a cancer that begins in the cervix. It is the third most common cancer among women in the world. Routine pap smears allow doctors to find cervical cancer at much earlier stages. Cervical cancer most commonly begins in the squamous cells on the surface of the cervix.
Asbestos leads to cellular damage that disrupts the natural cell cycle. Once normal function of the cell cycle is lost, cells begin to divide and grow uncontrollably. These cells then accumulate into tumors that trigger Mesothelioma symptoms. Approximately 3% of women with cancer have Mesothelioma, and 5% of men with cancer have Mesothelioma. Current medical treatment options include chemotherapy, radiation, and surgery, and most patients choose to undergo a combination of these processes in order to increase their life expectancy.
All through school I was at least a B student, until my sophomore year. My mom had found some lumps and the doctor just told her they were caffeine lumps. Come to find out, she had breast cancer, and had already had it for many years. A simple misdiagnoses led her into Stage 4 Breast Cancer.

Hodgkin’s disease or Hodgkin’s Lymphoma is a cancer of the lymph tissue found in the lymph nodes, spleen, liver and bone marrow. Lymph nodes are found in the Lymphatic System which is part of the Immune System. Hodgkin’s Lymphoma cells grow abnormally and spread around the body. As the disease progresses it compromises the body’s ability to fight infection. The earlier the disease is diagnosed; the more effective the treatment will be and in most cases can be cured.
This in turn only supports CT colonography as a better screening choice for colorectal cancer. The cons listed are bowel preparation for the patient prior to a colonoscopy is considered too harsh and can lead to other health problems, i.e. dehydration, electrolyte imbalance, cardiac irregularity. The evaluation of 49 studies showed positive patient outcomes with the use of CT colonography; however did not go further to mention if any future diagnostic testing was necessary. This is very important information for nurses to pass on to their patients informing them they should always ask more questions.
In February of 2011 she was diagnosed with stage three invasive lobular carcinoma breast cancer. I thought my heart would break. My mom, my hero, my best-friend in the whole world had cancer. It felt as if the walls in that doctor’s office that day were crumbling around us. The doctor gave all the treatment options available to my mother and she and I made the decision for the most radical treatment option, a double mastectomy.
Breast cancer and death are two side effects you can experience no matter which kind of abortion you choice to have.

With the suction-aspiration method experience abdominal pain and cramping, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, spotting, and bleeding. With the RU-486 method you can experience abnormal menstrual bleeding, pelvic inflammatory disease, and menstrual irregularities (Hausknecht 537). Methotrexate is a chemotherapy drug with the potential for serious toxicity, which can result in the death of the mother as well as the baby.
