Women’s Cancer Awareness Week

With Mother’s Day around the corner on May 9, it also marks the week for women’s health and cancer awareness.

In spite of social leaps and bounds women have made in recent decades, there are still distinct differences between the bodies of men and women. There are many cancers that affect only women, or mostly women: breast cancer, fallopian tube cancer, ovarian cancer, uterine cancer, vaginal cancer, and vulvar cancer. Birth control pills can put women at risk of breast tenderness, gall bladder disease, bloating, nausea, acne, and headaches. Women are more susceptible to mood disorders like depression and anxiety.

Women go through menopause. Here is a great article from Google about how to ease symptoms of menopause and what to expect.

It’s not all that bad being a lady, though. Women typically have a larger deep limbic system than men, which allows them to be more in touch with feelings and better able to express those feelings, which promotes bonding and friendship with others. Women are also blessed with the gifts of childbirth and breastfeeding, which form immediate and permanent bonds with her child.
