Diagnosing penile cancer

When Connecticut men show the signs or symptoms of penile cancer, it is highly recommended that they go to a doctor in order to get examined. If doctors have reason to believe that a patient could have penile cancer, they may order certain tests in order to diagnose it.

Failure to diagnose breast cancer in Connecticut

Cancer patients in Connecticut and throughout the U.S. have concerns about physician negligence and failure to diagnose cancer. A negligent physician or cancer misdiagnosis prevents the patient's access to accurate prognostic information needed to make planning and treatment decisions. Time is an enemy of the misdiagnosed cancer patient.

WHO stresses early detection for cancer

Cancer that is diagnosed too late has resulted in millions of people enduring suffering that could have been prevented and premature death. Cancer victims and survivors in Connecticut may be interested in learning that the World Health Organization wants to focus on detecting and treating the disease earlier.

Study finds more cervical cancer deaths than previously reported

Connecticut women might want to rethink their risks of dying from cervical cancer. An assistant professor of epidemiology has noted that the typical approach for calculating rates of death for individual cancers did not exclude women who had undergone hysterectomies. This surgery removes the cervix, and a study from the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health produced results that showed sharply higher death rates when only counting women who had not had it removed.
