how cancer affect in women to fertilise
I'm one of the survivors who survived breast, ovarian and cervical cancer. For me, this is the most difficult time since my life was turned upside down because of it. All these years later, I still remember how much I cried. It's hard for the children and grandchildren to accept their mother with all the sadness and pain she has gone through. But the worst part was not knowing what would happen next. This kind of situation happens to me not just once but twice in a lifetime. On February 12 and March 8, 2020, respectively. Each one being two weeks apart, I had some devastating news which devastated the whole family – myself included. I was advised that I have metastasised stage 4 lung carcinoma, my first diagnosis.
The reason that I am writing about this topic here at Medium is because I have learnt from many people on social media how important it is for you to realise that when you are young and healthy, your body can heal itself. But if the tumour goes into your bones or joints or other organs, then these will do anything to stop it, eventually causing permanent damage. And now, this one has been too long a story for it to be an easy read and I have decided to put out a few things so that you will know what is going on for us.
I will start by saying that every single person who wants to know more about this topic must come and sit down with their family. There's no point sitting around in front of the television, waiting for updates which only end up being a bad dream, or waiting online to hear the story. You really need to find out today and it can't be too late for you to get help from all sorts of people. A doctor can give clear advice as well, the same way the surgeon did.
In fact, we don't have to wait long for people with any sort of health issue. If you want to talk to someone about cancer, the best place is usually via Google search. The internet is constantly changing and there's no good reason to wait around and hope they'll come back in time. They come back when they are ready and they are open 24 hours which means you shouldn't waste your precious time looking for answers on google either. So, if you want to improve your chances of surviving your disease, you have come to the right place and you're finally getting some answers.
The thing that I wanted you to realise that I talked about earlier if you haven't already heard about that, is that breast, ovary and cervical cancers will cause very similar symptoms to one another in certain patients. Like in a woman on ovary cancer it's called Stage IV and in a woman on cervical cancer Stage 2. One of them may even be diagnosed with stage 1 or 0. Most cases of each are due to cells growing abnormally or without the usual structure of the cells, which lead to tumours forming like balls so that there is not enough room to move and spread fast like normal tissue does. These different types of cancer are treated differently, so I will explain that shortly.
Cancer in general can be more difficult to survive than it appears – when you think cancer has affected you very badly, it can turn out that things were actually easier for you to overcome before you were diagnosed with it. Many survivors do make it through the treatment and recovery periods just fine, although it isn't without its ups and downs and it doesn't make a difference which way your cancer is going to go.
So, we have known for over 20 years that breast cancer and Ovarian cancer very often go hand-in-hand. In fact, it has been proven that Ovarian cancer is almost 50 times riskier if it's in Ovarian and breast cancer compared to cervical cancer. Why is this? Because Ovarian-related cancers have similar symptoms and some of the treatments aren
very common, while for example Cervical cancer can be much harder to treat. So, the main point I want to emphasise is that although Ovarian cancer might be very rare, we can help reduce the risk of developing it if we remember about the signs. So, let's get started.
The sign of Ovarian cancer is high levels of a hormone called FSH which is known to stimulate the development of eggs. As such, if a woman develops Ovarian cancer she usually also suffers from low levels of testosterone. Testosterone is the main hormone during pregnancy and when you are pregnant, it causes the ovaries to produce milk that contains antibodies like oxytocin. However, once they are ovulating, their production of menses is stopped, and after that they start producing sperm so that you can have kids if you choose.
If ovarian cancer occurs after any physical birth or sexual intercourse, then it is called primary cancer and if diagnosed early enough, it can be cured successfully. The prognosis for Ovarian cancer is generally good, especially if the condition is detected at an early age, sometimes within 10 years if it has not spread to other organs or tissues.
Cervical cancer is also called “the second most common form of malignancy affecting women worldwide”. Cervical cancer has some unusual symptoms. Usually, there will be abnormal changes in the cervix, which will not stay the same throughout the cycle and it will look like it's moving around the cervix and the uterus at various stages. This type of cancer usually presents with abnormal bleeding or discharge of fluids from the uterus, bladder or bowel.
When diagnosed with Cervical cancer, the main objective is the removal of the tumor. At that point, the cancer can spread and it can spread to other parts of the body which can lead to death.
These two cancers are very rarely seen simultaneously, but unfortunately, they are on the rise worldwide and many women are getting the diagnosis right now. That's why I want you to understand that if you want to save yourself from both the negative effects and the positive ones, you will have to take the chance and live your life as it was before you were diagnosed.
I think it’s quite amazing that there are people who are battling cancer at the moment and some of these people have used social media platforms to get help and share their stories. We've had success stories like Tracy Wilson who has fought against Breast cancer for 15 years, Laura Wright (who has battled Meningioma) and Liz Smith who got rid of her throat cancer.
I believe that if we can help one person in our lives who is battling cancer in any form, then that helps us all. When everyone knows someone who is battling a particular type of cancer, people start to look out for them. People know who has the good news and they look out for the person who has the bad news. We do need to change this and help those people who need our support right away.
We cannot let people die and die alone and we cannot let cancer continue spreading in the world. Although many survivors have survived their disease, we don't want these problems to continue and the number of deaths will increase exponentially if nothing is done now.
So, to wrap everything up, I would like to say that in all honesty, I am grateful that I have survived. Thanks to friends, loved ones and strangers who helped me throughout this process, I managed to survive.
And, as I said, all the survivors of any kind of cancer can never thank enough doctors for saving them. We need to learn from people like Dr Rishi Sahu, MD, and Dr Michael Lewis, MD-Fresher's Professor that they are still working on new approaches to diagnosing and managing cancer. I remember when they came in, he told us of a patient who had just lost 20 pounds after losing weight and cancer and when he found out that the cancer was diagnosed in the brain, he just smiled and said: “Good luck finding a cure for your cancer”. He was the most kind, compassionate man anyone could ever ask for.
I wish all of you well, I hope that you will have happy days and happy holidays ahead,
May the love of God shine upon you always.
