  1. Risk Factors For Cancer

  2. Cancer • Cancer is a term used for diseases in which abnormal cells divide into without control and are able to invade other tissues. Cancer cells can spread to other parts of the body through the blood and lymph systems. • It encompasses a complex group of more than 100 different types of cancerous diseases. Cancer can affect just about every organ in the human body. Many people are surprised to learn that cancer can affect parts of the body like eyes and the heart.

  3. Hormone Levels May Predict Breast Cancer • Higher levels of certain sex hormones may lead to a significantly higher risk of developing breast cancer for women, according to a new study out of Harvard Medical School. • The findings suggest it may be possible to test these hormone levels and identify women who may benefit the most from a prescription to buy Tamoxifen.

  4. Hormone Levels May Predict Breast Cancer • The researchers analyzed blood samples taken from a group of nurses nine years before the investigation began. They then looked at the health records of these participants. • The results showed that higher levels of any one of eight different sex hormones increased a woman's risk of breast cancer by 16 percent. The more hormones a participant had in excess, the more likely she was to develop tumors.

  5. Risk Factors For Breast Cancer • The researchers said that elevated estrogen and testosterone levels have long been recognized as risk factors for breast cancer, but the new study further deepens medical knowledge of how hormones affect a person's odds of developing cancer.

  6. Symptoms of Breast Cancer • Swelling of all or part of the breast • Skin irritation or dimpling • Breast pain • Nipple pain or the nipple turning inward • Redness, scaliness, or thickening of the nipple or breast skin • A nipple discharge other than breast milk • A lump in the underarm area

  7. Heart Burn problem • Heartburn is often dismissed as a minor inconvenience in life. While no one wants to experience it, acid reflux is not considered a serious condition like cancer or heart disease. • Heartburn can cause damage that increases the risk of serious health problems unless it is treated with a prescription to buy Nexium.

  8. Symptoms of Heart Burn • A burning sensation in the throat is the most obvious symptom, but the condition may have other effects. • Chest pain, pain after eating, a bitter taste in the mouth, hoarseness and a sore throat are all common symptoms of heartburn.

  9. Condition for Breast Cancer Patients • A prescription to buy Tamoxifen is one of the most effective means for helping women beat breast cancer over the long term. • New research suggests that many older breast cancer patients may not be receiving this potentially life-saving therapy or other important treatments.

  10. Condition for Elderly Breast Cancer • The elderly breast cancer patients are more likely to die from the condition than younger ones. • The results of their study showed that death rates are higher, even when accounting for other age-related causes of death. • The results showed that elderly breast cancer patients were significantly less likely to receive radiation, chemotherapy and other standard treatments.
