    The War on Cancer; A Comprehensive Reiteration and Nuance into a Resolution Summary: Author Clinton Leaf discusses the validity of the argument that as a nation we are losing the war on cancer. Leaf lives as a survivor of Hodgkin’s disease, an informed crusader and valuable entity into guiding the battle into a new direction. Leaf explains that the true purpose that the war on cancer was brought about by Nixon in 1971, and has been seriously diluted by the need for a “here and now” cure.

    Ovarian Cancer

    Ovarian cancer is cancer that forms in tissues of the ovary. It is the fifth most common cancer among women, and it causes more deaths than any other type of female reproductive cancer. The cause is unknown. A woman has a 1 in 67 chance of developing ovarian cancer. The risk for developing ovarian cancer appears to be affected by several factors. The more children a woman has and the earlier in life she gives birth, the lower her risk of ovarian cancer. Certain genes (BRCA1 and BRCA2) are responsible for a small number of ovarian cancer cases. Women with a personal history of breast cancer or

    Lung Cancer Causes, Symptoms, And Treatments

    1103 words, 5 pages

    Cancer begins in your cells, which are the building blocks of your body. Normally, your body forms new cells as you need them, replacing old cells that die. Sometimes this process goes wrong. New cells grow even when you don't need them, and old cells don't die when they should. These extra cells can form a mass called a tumor. Tumors can be benign or malignant. Benign tumors aren't cancer, malignant ones are. Cells from malignant tumors can invade nearby tissues. They can also break away and spread to other parts of the body. The spread of cancer from one part of the body to another is

    Leukemia is a type of cancer that begins in blood cells, which are formed in the bone marrow. The bone marrow makes three types of blood cells: white, which fight infection; red, which carry oxygen through the body and platelets which clot the blood and control bleeding. White blood cells that mutate before maturity are called leukocytes. Leukocytes reproduce quickly, stopping the production of normal white blood cells. When a person has leukemia that production is out of control. The name “Leukemia” comes from the word leukocytes. Leukemia is a very diverse type of cancer; meaning there
