- A: A site I found about it says this:”The survival rate for uterine cancer generally depends upon the individual health of the patient. However, average rates can be determined. The prognosis for endometrial cancer is typically good. If caught early, the five year survival rate is between 75% and 95%. The prognosis for uterine sarcomas is less promising. If caught early, there is a five-year survival rate of between 20% and 50%. In its most advanced stages, the five-year survival rate is only 10%.”The site is http://www.epigee.org/health/uterine_treatment.htmlThe wikipedia site says this:”The American Cancer Society estimates that 41,200 women will be diagnosed with uterine cancer in 2006, and of those 7,350 will die. About 70% of all women diagnosed are between the ages of 45-74. A woman’s chance of developing this cancer through out her life time is about 1 in 38. 500,000 women have been diagnosed and survived this cancer. This cancer is 40% more prominently found in white women, however an African American women who is diagnosed with uterine cancer is twice as likely to die. Doctors say that on average the five-year survival rate is at 84%, and this percentage increases if the cancer is detected in early stages.”http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Uterine_cancer~Kyle
- Personal girl question?
- Q: I am very active:Ride horses and play lots of sports. I use pads, and I really want to try tampons. My mom and I are close, but it is weird talking to her about this stuff. My mom used to be an Obstetrician , then an ER nurse, and now a flight nurse. I don’t know how to bring up that I want to try them. She had a hysterectamy so she hasn’t had hers in 7 or so yrs. What are some ways I can bring up the subject?And what are the best brands of tampons for horseback riders?
- A: Actually, do ask her. Its important since she will be able to give you the best answer. Maybe she uses them too, if not, then she will be able to help you get them. Dont be too embarrased to talk about these kinds of things with your mom. She is and will always be the one and only female to count on when needing advice on things like these. Also, she might give you the pros and cons on the tampons as well, and always do your research just to make sure you are getting a good product. Good Luck!!
