Cancer Lawyers Philadelphia and New Jersey
There are many types of Cancers which affect women, children and men. The most common cancers in women are: breast cancer; lung cancer; colon cancer; and gynecological cancers (cervical Cancer, ovarian cancer, endometrial and uterine Cancers). The most common cancers in children are: leukemia; lymphomas; and, brain tumors. The most common cancers in men are: prostate cancer; lung cancer; colon cancer; pancreatic cancer; and, liver cancer.
The general rule with Cancer is that the earlier cancer is diagnosed and treated, the better the outcome for the patient. The size, location and spread of cancer are all important in determining whether you are likely to survive your cancer. With most cancers, survival is discussed in terms of 5 year time periods. Treatments for cancer are advancing but the most common are still medically primitive: surgery; chemotherapy; and, radiation therapy.
Many cancers produce no symptoms or limited symptoms in their early stages while some produce “tell-tale” signs of a cancer, which might be a red flag to your doctor. Even with the many screening tests available for cancers (ie. Mammograms, Pap Smears, Ultrasounds, PSA), cancers aren’t always diagnosed in their early stages. A late diagnosis of cancer can mean the difference between a lifetime of memories or a few short months.
