Research about Cancer at the women.

This is one of the most popular cancer in the world,next to uterine sarcoma cancer.
Some types of cancer and what we need to know about it.

Here is a research about this types:
Breast,Cervical,Endometrial,Gestational Trophoblastic Tumor,Ovarian,Uterine Sarcoma,Vaginal,Vulvar.

Breast Cancer.
-----------------



Definition of breast cancer: Cancer that forms in tissues of the breast, usually the ducts (tubes that carry milk to the nipple) and lobules (glands that make milk). It occurs in both men and women, although male breast cancer is rare.
Estimated new cases and deaths from breast cancer in the United States in 2008:
New cases: 182,460 (female); 1,990 (male)
Deaths: 40,480 (female); 450 (male).

Cervical Cancer
----------------

Definition of cervical cancer: Cancer that forms in tissues of the cervix (the organ connecting the uterus and vagina). It is usually a slow-growing cancer that may not have symptoms but can be found with regular Pap tests (a procedure in which cells are scraped from the cervix and looked at under a microscope).
Estimated new cases and deaths from cervical (uterine cervix) cancer in the United States in 2008:
New cases: 11,070
Deaths: 3,870

Endometrial cancer.
---------------------------

Definition of endometrial cancer: Cancer that forms in the tissue lining the uterus (the small, hollow, pear-shaped organ in a woman's pelvis in which a baby grows). Most endometrial cancers are adenocarcinomas (cancers that begin in cells that make and release mucus and other fluids).
Estimated new cases and deaths from endometrial (uterine corpus) cancer in the United States in 2008:
New cases: 40,100
Deaths: 7,470

Gestational Trophoblastic tumor
.
----------------------------------
Definition of gestational trophoblastic tumor: Any of a group of tumors that develops from trophoblastic cells (cells that help an embryo attach to the uterus and help form the placenta) after fertilization of an egg by a sperm. The two main types of gestational trophoblastic tumors are hydatidiform mole and choriocarcinoma. Also called gestational trophoblastic disease.

Ovarian Cancer
.
-------------------
Definition of ovarian cancer: Cancer that forms in tissues of the ovary (one of a pair of female reproductive glands in which the ova, or eggs, are formed). Most ovarian cancers are either ovarian epithelial carcinomas (cancer that begins in the cells on the surface of the ovary) or malignant germ cell tumors (cancer that begins in egg cells).
Estimated new cases and deaths from ovarian cancer in the United States in 2008:
New cases: 21,650
Deaths: 15,520

Uterine Sarcoma.

------------------
Definition of uterine sarcoma: A rare type of uterine cancer that forms in muscle or other tissues of the uterus (the small, hollow, pear-shaped organ in a woman's pelvis in which a baby grows). It usually occurs after menopause. The two main types are leiomyosarcoma (cancer that begins in smooth muscle cells) and endometrial stromal sarcoma (cancer that begins in connective tissue cells).

Vaginal Cancer.

---------------------
Definition of vaginal cancer: Cancer that forms in the tissues of the vagina (birth canal). The vagina leads from the cervix (the opening of the uterus) to the outside of the body. The most common type of vaginal cancer is squamous cell carcinoma, which starts in the thin, flat cells lining the vagina. Another type of vaginal cancer is adenocarcinoma, cancer that begins in glandular cells in the lining of the vagina.
Estimated new cases and deaths from vaginal (and other female genital) cancer in the United States in 2008:
New cases: 2,210
Deaths: 760

Vulvar Cancer.
--------------
Definition of vulvar cancer: Cancer of the vulva (the external female genital organs, including the clitoris, vaginal lips, and the opening to the vagina).
Estimated new cases and deaths from vulvar cancer in the United States in 2008:
New cases: 3,460
Deaths: 870

It is sad but true,this days more and more people die because of cancer.
I wish to everyone lot of health and stay out of trouble.
Happy Hollydays !
