Cancer remains a leading cause of death in baby boomers as well as elderly men and women [1]. There are 5 leading cancer related deaths among women which are preventable if there is early detection of genetic predisposition, early diagnosis, prompt intervention and follow up. Common cancers affecting women are breast, colorectal, endometrial, cervical, skin and ovarian cancers [2]. Out of the common cancers, the five that result in a high percent of deaths are breast cancer (15%), lung and bronchus cancer (21%), colorectal cancer (8%), pancreatic cancer (8%), uterine/ovarian cancer (8%), thyroid cancer (5%) and liver cancer (4%) [3]. Multiple factors could be root cause of cancers ranging from genetic predisposition to certain cancers, to smoking (including second-hand smoke), excessive alcohol consumption, infectious agents like human papilloma virus, noncommunicable diseases like type II diabetes, overweight/obesity, poor lifestyle choices etc. Prevention is better than cure and cancers are largely preventable, if not, diagnosed early by regular check-ups and paying close attention to signs of abnormal lumps, enlargements, pain, protrusion and in consultation with physicians to get prompt screening of abnormal findings. Surgical removal of tumors along with breast removal before onset of breast cancer could be a way to prevent death due to breast cancer [4]. It is very important to ensure health insurance coverage because the cost of treatment can be very high. It is equally important to be pro active about own health as health is wealth and kicking self-destructive habits and having a healthy lifestyle can contribute to longevity.
