Cancer In Women

The American Medical Association recommends regular checkups by your doctor to detect cancer in its early stages when chances of a cure are best. Learn to check your breasts by using the three-pronged approach to breast health: monthly breast self-exams, clinical examinations, and regular mammograms. Scheduling regular exams and Pap smears to check the cervix and uterus is also important.

Changes in your normal bowel pattern — constipation, diarrhea, or blood in your stool — may be early signs of colon or rectal cancer. Smoking is increasing in women, and it is the number one cause of lung cancer. Early signs are a cough that will not go away and coughing up blood. Your best protection is not to smoke. Even secondary smoke can harm you.

Be sure to visit The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists for more information.
