forgotten one i read about again uterine cancer. The article said it is the forgotten cancer and that is sad. Maybe the breast cancer group ought to think about spending some of there unlimited funds on this and women out there don't forget to get your pap smears every year

Leron their has been a vaccine made to help prevent some girls fron getting cervical and uteris cancer hpv vaccine so they are still in research I had my to girls get it. Its for the human papalova virus it helps prevent I believe 5types of these cancers. My mm had cirvical cancer the froze it and so she has it no longer. I believe they concentrate n breast cancer because more women die of it from nt doing self examines and it can be detected more quicker if they do there for treated and death not be so definate to occur.
I do agree that all cancers should be treated as a major concern colon cancer prostate cancer ovarian cancer I mean the list goes on and on hopeful people are getting testing for all of these aweful illness and they find out where they can getting testing without a fee cause they do have them but I wish they would advertise that more so people without insurance wuld get that information and would do free testing for lung cancer as well cause lung cancer is found also in people who have never smoked cigerettes in their lives but the gov thinks it is only for those wh do so its put on the back burner as well. Leron has this recently effected you personally or someone you love? Cause it is very much treatable and easily with a good out come! You have so much going on now I hope this isn't why you posted this question but ill be here for you as I know your other friends here will be as well. Take care

My opinion is different as more women die from lung cancer each year. It's a business. Do you realize that there aren't that many doctotors and scientists that do medical research, and if they do research on child hood cancers, there isn't enough to do research for breast cancer, etc. While the shots are preventive, especially for young woman, it still leaves older women out in the cold. For years, the focus was on child cancers like luekemia, now it's breast cancer. When somebody or a group can focus the publics' emotions on a specific disease, they can raise lots of money for research, and the scientists and researchers focus on that particular cause, because the money is there. When I was a child-the focus and money raising was for polio. Jonas Salk developed the vaccine-then it went to child cancers because of Danny Thomas and St. Jude Hospital.
Now it's breast cancer. That one has everything-titties and mommy, titties and the wife/girlfriend.
At UNMH, they do uterine and cervical cancer research. I was dating one of the researchers. It was very interesting. They'd collect cancer cells from patients and inject them in rats in various parts of the body. Some of these rats had the experimental vaccine-some not. They found out that when injected into the rectum, that cervical cancer became a deadly form of lung cancer, by passing other organs-same when female rats were injected in the vagina or cervix. While they don't jump to conclusions, it does seem to suggest why women seem to be more susceptical to lung cancer, especially if they smoke.
I think not smoking is the most important thing in preventing cancer-and that knowledge has been around for years.

thanks to all of you for your input. yes all cancers are bad. it just irritates me when the money goes to only one research and i feel they should pool their money's together and try to find the cure for the common cold then they will finally find the cure for cancer. as they are in the same catagory. My feelings are no one wants to find a cure as cancer is big business Leron
