Overall rate of death from cancer decreases in US

Cancer mortality is widely variable depending on where you live in the United States, according to a study examining 35 years of data for 29 types of cancer.

Thousands of woman across Dorset are avoiding screening tests for cervical cancer due to being "too embarrassed".

When researchers at Johns Hopkins University excluded these women, they found the death rates were much higher. Cervical cancer used to be the leading cause of cancer death for women in the USA the organization says.

"As the USA enters a new debate about access to health care, these findings on the wide differences in cancer mortality should inform the discussion", said researcher Laura Dwyer-Lindgren, a co-author of the study, in a press statement. But with the impending defunding of programs like Planned Parenthood, which uses federal funds to provide these exact preventative services to nearly 300,000 people each year, we risk an enormous rise in cervical cancer deaths - among other disastrous effects.

After adjusting for hysterectomies (a surgical operation to remove part or all of the uterus), the journal Cancer found that the corrected mortality rate in black women was 10.1 per 100,000 women (between 2000 and 2012) instead of 5.7 and white women was 4.7 per 100,000 instead of 3.2 as previously thought. Most women's test results show that everything is normal, but for around 1 in 20 women the test shows some abnormal changes in the cells of the cervix. We know how to treat it: Catch it early through routine screenings, and a combination of surgery and chemotherapy has proven effective.

The gameplay for Fire Emblem Heroes will be turn-based combat - your characters will use a grid-based map to attack and defend. The launch of the game for both consoles just confirms that they're not shunning the 3DS aside for the Nintendo Switch.

The new research examined more than 19.5 million deaths in the USA, from 29 different types of cancer, over three and a half decades.

The study also revealed two striking pockets of cancer death: one along the Mississippi River and the other across the South and into the industrial Midwestern states.

King County residents have a lower death rate for all cancers than people in Pierce and Snohomish counties, a study found.

"ASCO commends the authors for this very important study and remains committed to ensuring all individuals have access to the cancer prevention and treatment services they need". Drugs such a s bevacizumab (Avastin) have shown promise in blocking the spread of cervical cancer cells and in making chemotherapy work better. Then, starting from the age of 30, they should have a pap test combined with a HPV test every five years to take all precautions. Cervical cancer, which is caused by the human papillomavirus (HPV), can also be prevented by the HPV vaccine, which is offered to young people. American Indians and Alaskan natives have the lowest risk of cervical cancer in this country, according to the American Cancer Society.

However, large differences were seen in the mortality rate among counties, researchers said. "We find cancers earlier".
