CANCER RESEARCH Uterine Cancer in Women Like breast cancer, uterine cancer is most common for women under

45-50 years old. As most types of cancer, it can be cured if its discovered at an early stage, before and metastatic effects. This type of cancer, is not rare unfortunately for women, below 45 years old, so its advised to all women, to have a uterine check up the so called Greek, PAP Test, once they reach 30 years old. Women, who havent had a child, and havent given birth, are more prone to this type of cancer, this also being dependent on many other factors. The most common symptoms of uterine cancer, is extensive bleeding of the sensitive area of women, with hemorrhagic symptoms starting from uterine, and ending up to the whole genital area of women. At an early stage even, mostly a total removal of uterine is advisable, this meaning that a woman below 40 years for example in this case Will never be able to have a baby of course, she can live long however, if the removal of uterine, is such, that no affection of the rest of area Will be possible. Partial removal of uterine, can be risky and it is not advisable, as cells, can be spread in the rest of uterine area, and then there is an increased danger of metastasis, to the rest of uterine body, but also to other parts such as breast, head or anywhere. Once removal is achieved through operation, then a tight follow up by doctor should be performed, for possible metastasis, or reappearance of tumor, in the same area, then its a non curable case, as metastasis is almost certain in this case. Chemotherapy is more advisable, once total removal of uterine is effected, but total cure has not been achieved. In case of bleeding again, after a while, of post operational stage, the woman, must go o doctor immediately again. There are some kinds of uterine cancers that are specifically aggressive. For example, apart from hair fall with chemotherapy, and this is the least consequence, then excretes can get out from the belly area, then things can be extremely difficult. This of course depends on the overall resistance of body to cancer, and metastasis after operation and removal of uterine. Radiotherapy, is advised at earliest stage, when it is confirmed by specialists, that a total removal of uterine is not indispensable, then, radiotherapy can protect the uterine, from been totally affected by destroyed cells, thus all organs of the body can be protected this way. In some cases, women, have to get more than one opinions from doctors, and partial removal of uterine is mostly suggested when the type of tumor is negative, with some possibility of turning to positive form of cancer in the future. For many reasons, statistics prove that women, in West Europe countries, and USA, are more prone to having uterine cancer, than women in other parts of the world, where women, have babies more often, thus a reduced chance of uterine cancer, in regard to women of other countries. Another factor for increased possibility for uterine cancer according to some specialists, is some irregularity of menstrual circle in women, even below 30 years old, women who have long used contraceptives, or have had too many different sexual relationships; these point of views are defended by some scientists in the field of gynecologists, while others claim that these factors have not yet been 100% confirmed.
