Female Cancers 

Another vital aspect I am so very passionate about is getting your tests every year for woman.You need to check with your doctors and get checked accordingly (annually, every two years, three, etc.) Every month you need to do a self breast exam. I have my guy do mine and trust me, he knows my breasts better than I do! If you can find a way to make cancer screening fun then go for it! Cervical cancer and breast cancer are devastating cancers that can in most cases be at least caught early if not prevented all together. There are many sites for breast cancer and as one of my closest online friends is an amazing cervical cancer survivor, she provided what is not so common cervical cancer links. I know that I am not the best person to give advice on these female cancers but I can try my best to connect you with someone who can, or send you to the right websites to find a person online to talk to. My hope is that cancers where they might be able to be caught early or prevented will be better known to every woman everywhere. In our current technologically advanced world, it is unacceptable for any woman to have to suffer or die from these cancers. Woman need to be more informed and Drs need to be more willing to accept and interpret woman’s test results! You are in control of your health, no matter what your diagnosis. I am not a Dr. so I offer only my personal opinion on these matters. However, you as the patient have control of your body, no one can tell you what to do; you have to decide for yourself, so if you think your body is not acting like it should, fight for your right to be heard. I have read too many survivor stories where the patient is fully ignored because they are "too young" or they "don’t match the history for cancer". I was ignored when I was sick and ended up in the hospital for a week straight with a fever of 105 degrees. Luckily, the reason I was ignored most of the time is because my mother is in the medical field and she exudes a sense of "Talk to me, I know what you are talking about" air to her. So, while they didn’t listen to me at least they listened to her most of the time. If you want to learn more about cervical cancer please see the following links

 Breast Cancer Sites 

I will not spend much time on Breast Cancer. There is such an abundance of pink products, websites, event and information that it has gotten to the point where if you are a woman and a cancer survivor you are placed in breast cancer even if that is not what you had, like me. I get “oh hun, breast cancer?” No. No, I did not have breast cancer. Just because I have breasts doesn’t mean I had breast cancer. However, many women who have breast cancer are out going in their fight and their support. You can find anything you could desire, from angry breast cancer survivors to too positive survivors. However, as this is the women’s issue page I thought I could add a couple of links and want to push self exams every month.

Breast cancer assistance financially, emotionally, physically, this is an all inclusive site.

A site that covers everything: symptoms & diagnosis, treatment & side effects, day to day matters, how to lower your risk and a community!
