Cancer in Women Is More Curable than In Men

Dr Vijay Anand P Reddy

The Hand that Rocks the Cradle Rules the World. It’s a different matter altogether that more and more men are participating in the rocking of the cradle these days! Nevertheless, the statement justifies the role that women play in society.

Love, care, compassion and selfless service are synonymous with women, and valid through all the varied roles that they play – right from the sweet little girl to a bubbly teenager, loving and supporting wife to caring mother, and the praying and blessing grandmother.

It was Mahatma Gandhi who once said, “Man can never be a women’s equal in the spirit of selfless service”.

Besides being the more admirable part of creation, God has also been partial to women in one more way. Compared to men most cancers in women are curable. Cancer of the breast, cervix, uterus, ovary and Gestational Trophoblastic Neoplasia (GTN) are the common cancers in women, and are very often cured.
God has probably showered this gift on women because he knows women are indispensable!

Also, cancers in women cause early symptoms and signs, and hence are prone to be detectable and diagnosed early. The diagnostic procedures are very simple, minimally invasive, easily accessible and affordable.
