Overview

As its name suggests, this type of cancer affects the production and function of your blood cells. This type of cancer starts in bone marrow which is the integral source of blood production. Stem cells in your bone marrow mature and develop into three types of blood cells: red blood cells, white blood cells, or platelets. In case of cancer, the blood production process is interrupted due to the growth of an abnormal type of blood cell. The various types include Leukemia, Lymphoma and Myeloma.

Overview

Cervical cancer is the third most common type of cancer affecting the women. This type of cancer starts in the cervix, the lower part of the uterus (womb) that opens at the top of the vagina. This cancer develops very slowly and begins as a precancerous condition called dysplasia.  Almost all cervical cancers are caused by HPV (human papilloma virus), which is a common virus that spreads through sexual intercourse. All women should begin cervical cancer screening when they are 21 years old. It is the easiest female cancer to prevent with regular Pap smears and follow-up. Screening should be done every 3 years in women with no history of abnormal Pap smear. Depending on the stage of cervical cancer , treatment such as surgery, radiotherapy and chemtherapy are available.
