Cervical Cancer - 1,446 words
Great strides have been made in recent years in the development of a vaccine to treat the cervical cancer. Scientists have cultivated a prophylactic vaccine that would protect against the human papillomavirus. HPV's role in generating cervical cancer was discovered in 1983. The WHO's International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC), located in Lyon, France, has been in the forefront in epidemiological and laboratory studies needed to comprehend the disease. The IARC have chosen different methods, but the origins of most of them are based on genetically engineered Virus Like Particles (VLPs), composed of the outer structural proteins of HPV.

... boost of treatment to the cancer itself and the area close by. Internal radiotherapy for cancer of the cervix is also known as called 'caesium treatment'. This is because a radioactive element called caesium is the radiation source that is used for the in-patient treatment over a few days. Other radioactive metals can be used, which release radiation more quickly. Treatment can be given in 2 - 5 sessions of a few minutes each.

Sometimes doctors use external radiotherapy before or after surgery, but ...

Sexual transmitted diseases (STD) are one of the major causes of death in the United States, frequently in teenagers. Some of these sexual transmitted diseases do not have a cure and many others, if not treated properly, can lead to very serious complications as cancer.

Trihomonas - 334 words
October 1, 1999 Ebony Dickens bk.104 Trichomonas is caused by infection with a flagellated protozoan, Trichomonas vaginalis. It is estimated that up to one in five sexually active women will contract trichomonas during her lifetime.

Because trichomonas is sexually transmitted, male sexual partners must also be treated, even if asymptomatic and no infection is detected. Trichomonas, like many other STDs, often occurs without any symptoms. Men almost never have symptoms. When women have symptoms, they usually appear within four to 20 days of exposure. The symptoms in women include a heavy, yello ...

The Affect of Social Organization of Everyday Life On Health Most people do not think about their health or issues revolving around their health until they are actually ill or people think that their health is only affected by biological factors. However, our health should be a focus in our lives because our daily life has an affect on our health. Illness does not only have biological causes but is also influenced by social factors such as the socially imposed roles of gender and socioeconomic differences. Before the affect of gender on health can be discussed, the difference between gender and sex must first defined. Sex refers to actual physiological and hormonal differences between men an ...

Teenage Birth Control Rights - 1,322 words
Commentary: Teenage Birth Control Rights In today's world, there are conflicts over the confidentiality of police reports, conflicts over the right to have an abortion, and conflicts over the release of personal medical records for public knowledge. All of these pressing issues have at least one thing in common-they are all issues of privacy. Many discussions take place regarding adults rights to privacy. Yet the same adults, who are so concerned over their rights, have proposed laws that limit the rights of teenagers. One of these bills, which regarded Title X (Ten) Birth Control Clinics, passed the U.S. House of Representatives in October of 1998. Legislators need to realize that pushing p ...

... litic lesions. The use of a condom during sexual intercourse can assist in this, but a condom will not protect other exposed surfaces. Genital herpes is rapidly gaining attention as an STD.

The virus itself, however, stays in a dormant stage: the absence of symptoms does not necessarily mean the ...

Abortion Equals Murder - 750 words
It is my belief that abortion is in no way protected by the constitution. Back when the constitution was written, the issue of abortion was not a problem. Since then, there have been no specific amendments protecting the rights of those who wish to kill their unborn baby. Every year in Canada, over 100 000 murders never reach the courtroom. They never reach the courtroom because they are completely legal. Although abortion continues to grow, it is immoral, harmful, and actions must be taken to stop it. When a woman aborts, she is not only killing her child but is also harming herself. Legal abortion is the fifth leading cause of maternal death. Ten percent of women undergoing abortion suffer ...

Diagnosing Aids - 650 words
Hence, without this diagnosis, many women are unable to receive health benefits and services available to those with an "official" AIDS diagnosis (12). Further data that show that women with AIDS do not survive as long after diagnosis as men and, once diagnosed, become sick faster and die sooner than men with AIDS (12). Some studies suggest this be attributed to gender differences or to delay diagnosis of women, inferior access to health care and poor utilization of service (12). Utilization of the prescribed drug therapies may affect the course of HIV/AIDS in women. Evidence suggests that a number of HIV-infected women are reluctant to take antiretroviral drugs because of concerns about the ...
