CANCER – A DANGER OF DEATH
Please, keep this letter because it is not know when you’ll have the surprise to be affected or to hear about someone love that was affected by cancer.
Women, cancer is jeopardy, don’t ignore it!
There isn’t other disease more fruitful for women. Imagine that you have been diagnosed with cancer and it is possible to have a mastectomy. Which will be the attitude of your husband, friend, family and your colleagues?
Microscopic exam of the tumor’s sample obtained through biopsy determines it’s malign or benign type. The normal medical procedures implies the removal of the tumor or the cyst through surgery and then the extemporaneous histopathologic examination. You’ll remain under anesthesia on surgical table since the results come from pathologist. The verdict: if the tumoral tissue is benign the operation is finished; if the tumoral tissue is malign the surgical intervention will be materialized through a radical mastectomy. Mastectomy implies the removal of the entire breast together over 85% of maxillary lymphatic nodes. In this case, it is possible to occur the arm’s edema (swollen arm) and it will lost its normal mobility and will not be functionally any longer.
Both physically and psychological will appear a trauma, even for the strongest women, very equilibrated. But this is not enough, you’ll experience the anxiety that darks your mind. Unfortunately, there is no certitude that after total mastectomy the disease will not spread or metastasize at the distance. At least will remain only the hope. This can be only a dream if the disease isn’t treated properly.
Don’t forget about the uterine cervix cancer.
Only a clinical exam and a pap test can help you to detect the disease at the right moment. Detected in advanced stages, the disease can be harmful. There is no cure treatment in these stages. The only option is a chance of 60% to survive one or three years from the diagnosis. Unfortunately, this is the reality. We make our duty to warn you.
You decide your destiny! Who have ears so listen!
Cancer is not a joke.
