CERVICAL CANCER AND HPV

Let's get closer to some of our indispensable foes, once they hit their targets they always leave eternal certainties.

Though I speak with the tongues of men and angels and have not charity, I am become as sounding brass, or a tinkling cymbal. My hope if successful is to reinstate the egocentric hopes of the stricken.


Cervical cancer is the term for a malignant neoplasm arising from cells originating in the cervix uteri. One of the most common symptoms of cervical cancer is abnormal vaginal bleeding, but in some cases there may be no obvious symptoms until the cancer has progressed to an advanced stage.

God loveth a cheerful giver. Why not give unto thine self the spirit of insight.

Cervical cancer occurs when abnormal cells develop and spread in the cervix, the lower part of the uterus. There are around 2,800 new cases of cervical cancer diagnosed in the UK each year, which is around 55 women every week. A unique fact about cervical cancer is that most cases are triggered by a type of virus. When found early, cervical cancer is highly curable.

Should we grieve over a little misplaced charity, when an all knowing, all wise Being showers down every day his benefits on the unthankful and undeserving?

Symptoms of Cervical Cancer
When cervical cells first become abnormal, there are rarely any warning signs. As the cancer progresses, symptoms may include:

Unusual vaginal discharge

Vaginal bleeding between periods

Bleeding after menopause

Bleeding or pain during sex

Top Cause of Cervical Cancer:

HPV

The human papillomavirus (HPV) is a large group of viruses. About 40 types can infect the genital areas, and some have high risk for cervical cancer. Genital HPV infections usually clear up on their own. If one becomes chronic, it can cause changes in the cells of the cervix. And it's these changes that may lead to cancer. Worldwide, over 90% of cervical cancers are caused by an HPV infection.

Every charitable act is a stepping stone towards heaven or hell or a peaceful haven, whichever you believe, I hope we all stride towards peace. Amen.

How HPV Causes Cervical Cancer

If one of the high-risk strains of HPV lingers in the body, it can cause abnormal cells to develop in the cervix. These precancerous changes do not mean that you have cervical cancer. But over time, the abnormal cells may give way to cancer cells. Once cancer appears, it tends to spread in the cervix and surrounding areas.

We ourselves feel that what we are doing is just a drop in the ocean. But if that drop was not in the ocean, I think the ocean would be less because of that missing drop. I do not agree with the big way of doing things.

Symptoms of HPV

HPV infections usually have no symptoms and go away on their own. Some types of the HPV virus may cause genital warts, but these are not the same strains linked to cervical cancer. It's important to note that genital warts will not turn into cancer, even if they are not treated. The dangerous types of HPV can stay in the body for years without causing any symptoms.

Who Is at Risk for HPV?

HPV is so common that most people who have ever had sex -- both women and men -- will get the virus at some point in life. Because HPV can linger quietly, it's possible to carry the infection even if it has been years since you had sex. Condoms can lower your risk of getting HPV, but they do not fully protect against the virus. HPV is also linked to cancers of the vulva, vagina, penis, and to anal and oral cancers in both sexes.

Therefore when thou doest thine alms, do not sound a trumpet before thee, as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and in the streets, that they may have glory of men. Verily I say unto you, they have their reward. But when thou doest alms, let not thy left hand know what thy right hand doeth.

What Else Raises Your Risk?

Hispanic and African-American women have higher rates of cervical cancer than white women. Somehow I still find this notion we meet whenever we mention ailments, fundamentally, impossible to swallow. A lot has change, equality and dignity, entitle us all to a future full of person centred approach. Then a green man has the right to face the same treatment as an alien or the predator.

The risk is also higher in infected women who:

Smoke

Have many children

Use birth control pills for a long time

Are HIV positive or have a weakened immune system.

The living need charity more than the dead.

Stages of Cervical Cancer

Stage 0 describes cancer cells found only on the surface of the cervix. More invasive cancers are separated into four stages. Stage I is when the cancer has not spread beyond the cervix. Stage II means the tumor has spread to the upper part of the vagina. A Stage III tumor extends to the lower part of the vagina and may block urine flow. In Stage IV, the tumor has reached the bladder or rectum, or cancer cells have spread to other parts of the body and formed new tumours.

Charity never humiliated him who profited from it, nor ever bound him by the chains of gratitude, since it was not to him but to God that the gift was made.

Vaccine to Help Prevent Cervical Cancer

Vaccines are now available to ward off the two types of HPV most strongly linked to cervical cancer. Both Cervarix and Gardasil require three doses over a six-month period. Studies suggest the vaccines are effective at preventing chronic infections with the two types of HPV that cause 70% of cervical cancers. Gardasil also protects against two types of HPV that cause genital warts.

Do not tell me of my obligation to put all poor men in good situations. Are they my poor? I tell thee, thou foolish philanthropist, that I grudge the dollar, the dime, the cent, the pound, I give to such men as do not belong to me and to whom I do not belong. Even if I dare not fulfil my pledge with paper, I stand the opportunity to offer words.
