Types of Cancer in Women

Cancer is a condition wherein some of the cells in the body grow uncontrollably and spread to other parts of the body. It is a genetic disease that is caused by changes to genes that control the way our cells function especially how they grow and divide. 

Each person’s cancer has a unique combination of genetic changes. As cancer continues to grow, additional changes will occur. Even within the same tumor, different cells may have different genetic changes.


Cancer Facts for Women

Several cancers that most often affect women are colorectal, breast, endometrial, cervical, lung, skin, and ovarian cancers. Knowing about these cancers and what you can do to help prevent them or find them early may help save your life. 

1. Colorectal Cancer 

This starts in the colon or the rectum. Some factors that increase colorectal cancer risk include being overweight or obese, physical inactivity, or a diet high in red and processed meats. 

2. Breast Cancer

This is the most common cancer in American women, except for skin cancers. It can occur at any age, but the risk goes up as you get older.

3. Endometrial Cancer

This is a cancer of the endometrium. The risk of endometrial cancer increases as a woman gets older. Women with a personal or family history of hereditary non-polyposis colorectal cancer or PCOS, or those who are obese, also have a higher risk of getting endometrial cancer.

4. Cervical Cancer

Risk factors for cervical cancer include having a weakened immune system, smoking, having had a chlamydia infection, or being overweight or obese.

Cancer Prevention Using HCG Diet 

Some research has shown HCG can have a preventive effect. Experts who have studied the effects of HCG said that they’ve found some cancer patients to have a reduced tumor size using HCG. 

HCG is a hormone produced during pregnancy to help nourish the growing fetus. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved it for several medical uses. Doctors most often prescribe it to treat infertility. HCG stimulates the ovaries and helps a woman’s eggs to mature and be released into the woman’s ovarian tubes and then into the uterus.  

Other benefits of the HCG Diet may include:

  • It helps you keep your calories down
  • It curbs your appetite
  • It burns fats not muscles
  • It balances your hormones
  • You’ll have more energy
