Breast Cancer And Cervical Cancer
Breast cancer is a disease in which cells in the breast grow out of control. There are different kinds of breast cancer. The kind of breast cancer depends on which cells in the breast turn into cancer.
Breast cancer can begin in different parts of the breast. A breast is made up of three main parts: lobules, ducts, and connective tissue. The lobules are the glands that produce milk. The ducts are tubes that carry milk to the nipple. The connective tissue (which consists of fibrous and fatty tissue) surrounds and holds everything together. Most breast cancers begin in the ducts or lobules.
Breast cancer can spread outside the breast through blood vessels and lymph vessels. When breast cancer spreads to other parts of the body, it is said to have metastasized.
Cervical cancer is a type of cancer that occurs in the cells of the cervix which is the lower part of the uterus that connects to the vagina. There are various strains of the human papillomavirus (HPV), a sexually transmitted infection that play a role in causing most cervical cancer. When exposed to HPV, the body’s immune system typically prevents the virus from doing harm. In a small percentage of people, however, the virus survives for years, contributing to the process that causes some cervical cells to become cancer cells.

What are the risk factors for cervical cancer?
Any woman can get cervical cancer, but some women are at higher risk because of factors such as:
Having the Human Papillomavirus Virus (HPV)
HPV causes nearly all cases of cervical cancer. It is the most common sexually transmitted infection in the United States. Both men and women can have HPV.
Not Getting Screened
Cervical cancer is most often found in women who have not been screened with the Pap (Papanicolaou) test in more than five years or who have never been screened at all. Women who have been screened but do not follow up with their health care provider when results are abnormal are also more likely to develop cervical cancer.
Women who smoke are about two times more likely to get cervical cancer, compared to women who do not smoke
Women over the age of 30 are more likely to get cervical cancer.
Can Cervical Cancer be cured?
Cervical cancer is avoidable and curable if diagnosed initial, but it remains one of the most common cancers in women worldwide. Almost the reason of cervical cancers is caused by the human papillomavirus (HPV), a common sexually transmitted infection that can be prevented with the HPV vaccine.
Does a family history of breast cancer put someone at a higher risk?
Although women who have a family history of breast cancer are in a higher risk group, most women who have breast cancer have no family history. Statistically only 5-10% of individuals diagnosed with breast cancer have a family history of this disease.
How often should I go to my doctor for a check-up?
You should have a physical check-up annually which should include a clinical breast exam and pelvic exam. When any uncommon signs or changes in your breasts happen before your next assigned visit, do not wait to contact your doctor. Your doctor might recommend that you watch to see if the abnormality continues through your next menstrual period or they might recommend a diagnostic mammogram or ultrasound be done.
