CERVICAL CANCER: A Preventable Time Bomb


CERVICAL CANCER: A Preventable Time Bomb
Attention: Ladies of all ages and every real men who love and respect their mother, sister, girlfriend, wife, lady friend or lady cousins.

Cervical Cancer is the number two (2) cause of death in the Philippines next to breast cancer. It is labeled somewhat as a silent killer because there is no pain whatsoever in the early part of the disease. It kills 12 Filipinos, mostly women, every dayIt is the most common malignancy that afflicts and kills women with conservative estimates between 35,000 and 70,000 cases with almost 7,000 new cases added every year, according to studies.
Good thing, this cancer is preventable In fact, there is now a vaccine for the disease and it can be cured, if detected early! If it goes undetected, cervical cancer is the deadliest form of cancer. 

Twenty percent of all cancers are caused by viruses. Cervical cancer is primarily caused by human papillomavirus (HPV), the most common sexually transmitted infection worldwide. HPV takes several forms, which are referred to by number. There are about 100 types of HPV that generally infect people in various parts of the body but there are only 13 types that can cause cancer in the cervix.


Cervical cancer results from the uncontrolled growth of severely abnormal cells in the cervix, the opening of the womb. Usually, it takes about ten years before cancer develops. 

According to the Merck manual, Cervical cancer begins on the surface of the cervix and can penetrate deep beneath the surface. The cancer can spread directly to nearby tissues, including the vagina. Or it can enter the rich network of small blood and lymphatic vessels inside the cervix, then spread to other parts of the body.

In the early stages, cervical cancer usually causes no symptoms but unlike some cancers, cervical cancer presents early signs like the following:

  • It may cause spotting 
  • or heavier bleeding between periods
  • bleeding after intercourse
  • or unusually heavy periods. 
In later stages, such abnormal bleeding is common," says The Merck Manual of Medical Information.

Other symptoms may include:
  • a foul-smelling discharge from the vagina
  • pain in the lower abdomen
  • and swelling of the legs. 
The urinary tract may be blocked. Without treatment, kidney failure and death can result.

The younger a woman was the first time she had sexual intercourse and the more sex partners she has had, the higher her risk of cervical cancer. While women may contract HPV when they are young, cervical cancer is most likely to develop in women 35 years or older. Several other factors that may trigger cervical cancer among women include the following:
  •  early age at first birth
  •  having many births
  •  tobacco use
  •  prolonged use of hormonal contraceptives
  •  and an impaired immune system, particularly related to HIV infection.
To prevent this type of cancer, please have a vaccine shot before your very first sexual intercourse or within three (3) years after your very first sexual contact. 

Ask your trusted doctor about the vaccines against HPV that are currently sold in the market. A woman must be injected three times to guarantee full protection against the specific types of HPV infection.

The World Health Organization recommends HPV vaccination as early as nine (9) to thirteen (13) years old, especially in liberal countries. But every woman is at risk so women aged 13 to 55 years old can still have the vaccine.

HEALTH IS WEALTH
While a person is young, he uses health to create wealth. As he gets older, he uses his wealth to attain health.

Many people, not only Filipinos, strive for high ideals. And almost always with a few exception wanted to be rich.  Whether you admit it or not, in certain stage of your life, you don't consider wealth as your health.

  • Worry less
  • Think positive 
  • Smile always

OCTOBER 15, 2013: A Non-working Holiday


OCTOBER 15, 2013: A Non-working Holiday
Good News to all students and employees out there! 

I know that a lot of you are always on the look out for a possible holiday or time off from your hectic working or class schedules. So, the timely announcement by MalacaƱan Palace declaring a holiday on the 15th of this month is a welcome respite, right?

FEAST OF SACRIFICE or Eid’l Adha will be celebrated on October 15, 2013, Tuesday, a public holiday throughout the country as declared by President Benigno Simeon Aquino, Jr. through Proclamation No. 658

The President based the proclamation on Republic Act No. 9849 which provides that Eidul Adha (Eid’l Adha) be celebrated every year as a special nonworking day.

Eid’l Adha is one of the two greatest feasts of Islam, but the date of the festival is based on the declaration made by Saudi Arabia’s highest religious body.

The other is Eid’l Fitr or the Feast of Breaking the Fast that marks the end of the holy month of Ramadan.

Eid’l Adha is the 10th day in the month of Hajj, or the pilgrimage to Mecca, during which Muslims pay homage to Abraham’s supreme act of sacrifice that signifies mankind’s obedience to God.

This year the National Commission on Muslim Filipinos had recommended that the observance of Eid’l Adha be on October 15, “and the Eid’l Adha prayer be performed on the final declaration of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia,” according to 
MalacaƱan Palace.
