Mammograms play a very important role in breast cancer detection and helps decrease breast caner deaths . Many woman begin mammograms at the age 40 and have them every one to two years. The goal of screening exams for breast cancer is to find cancer before they start to cause symptoms like a lump that can be felt. Breast cancer found during screening are more likely to be small and still confined to the breast. The size of the breast cancer and how far it has spread are some of the most important factors in the prognosis of a woman with this disease.
In my opinion, a disease that can be controlled by just keeping yourself healthy, should not be a leading cause of death. Unfortunately, cancer is becoming more common in the United states. According to cancer.gov, breast cancer is the most common type of cancer with about 235,000 new cases expected in the United states in 2014. This is shocking to me that in just one year, that many cases of just one type of cancer can be found. Chronic lower respiratory diseases are the third leading causes of death.
Chialuka Odukwu S. Loftin AP Language/ 2A 15 November 2014 “Welcome to Cancerland” by Barbara Ehrenreich Rhetorical Précis Barbara Ehrenreich’s (an American writer and political activist) essay, “Welcome to Cancerland” (2001) express her own personal battle against breast cancer, and how there is more to cancer than shirts, ribbons, and teddy bears. Ehrenereich achieves this by including ethos, about her feelings towards the mammograms she has to do, and how big time companies are taking advantage of cancer. Furthermore, Ehrenreich informs readers that she “will not go into that last good night with a teddy bear tucked under my arm”, (Ehrenreich 323) this show that no matter what, when her time comes it is not going to be in a childish or lovable way. From describing her sense of losing her individuality, and to some extent, her own voice, immediately after a diagnosis had been made; being lost is Ehrenreich’s fear that far too many women succumb to the fear of giving up on personal choice and discretion after being “replaces” by cancer, as it noted in the essay “there is a cancer. I have been replaced by it.” (Ehrenreich 47) Giving the empowering, but also criticizing tone, the essay was not necessary limited to those have or had breast cancer, but extends those who might be at risk to some point in their life, but also to the discerning citizen, who may be wondering just how the hundreds of thousands of supports of breast cancer awareness, are supporting woman’s health in reality.
As well, there is strong evidence that abortion increases the risk of breast cancer. Women that abort increase their chances of getting breast cancer by 50%, and teenagers with no previous pregnancies that abort after the 8th week increase their probability by 800%. UNICEF states that 2500,000 women die every year because of legal and illegal abortions 75,000 of them die of self-inflicted abortions; 75,000 die of convulsions; and the other 100,000 die of blood poisoning caused by an infection of the uterus. Therefore, if abortion is legalized there will be not only more fetal murders but also more mothers will die. None of the methods doctors use for abortions is safe.

Health Psychology “Critically evaluate health psychology theory and research to explain patients’ experience of breast cancer.” An electronic journal search was conducted using the search facility of OVID, (2001 – 2008) and EBSCO, electronic journal services if the full journal article was not available via OVID. The search strategy used two key terms, breast cancer, and social support. The initial search for breast cancer revealed 6674 articles but when combined with social support the number available was reduced to 16. Of the 16 identified journal articles 3 were removed as the relevance to the subject was inappropriate and 2 articles, which were unavailable via Ovid, were accessed via EBSCO. The focus of the literature review will be upon breast cancer and social support received, and the psychological consequences that social support has upon the coping adaptability of breast cancer patients.
There are two vaccines (Gardisil and Cervaix) that are given to year 8 girls to prevent HPV. “This vaccine is said to save an estimate of 400 women each year .” A pathogen is a biological agent that causes diseases or illness to its host A cancer is a term used for diseases in which abnormal cells divide without control and are able to invade other tissues.

In most women inner beauty lays growing tumors and unknown breast cancer. A simple mammogram cant always catch the first signs of breast cancer or of a growing tumor.

Erin Gallagher and Natalie Lukehart Gallagher and Lukehart 1 Mrs. Greenwald Pre-IB English 10 9 March 2012 Organ Selling In the United States, there are now “…more than 105,000 people on the waiting list for solid organ transplants” (Womens Health), yet the list of donors is just a fraction of that amount. This is a controversial issue that has not only risen throughout the nation; but world-wide. Those for organ selling may argue that it saves lives, while those who are against organ selling argue that it is unethical. The black market for selling organs does exist, but what if potential donors were given incentives in a reputable commercial market: a thousand dollars for a kidney or two thousand for a heart? Would this be ethical?
