Matt Candler HPER P212 Dr. Henson Abstract #4 Weiss, Helen A., Susan S. Devesa, and Louise A. Brinton. “Laterality of Breast Cancer In the United States.” Cancer Causes and Control 7.5 (1996): pp. 539-43. Problem: Due to it being Breast Cancer Awareness month, and our discussions of breast cancer in class, I’ve decided to dedicate this abstract to just that, breast cancer. The obvious problem is that breast cancer is the most common cancer in women, even though the survival rate is slightly higher than that of lung cancer. It is suggested that over 40,000 women each year lose their lives to this disease. We aren’t fully aware of what causes breast cancer, but we do know that factors such as age, genetics, and diet have a correlation to it. Hypothesis: Studies show that the left breast has a slightly higher risk of adopting cancer compared to the right side. Suggestions of this study state that due to the fact that the left breast is generally slightly larger, it in turn, involves a slightly higher risk of becoming cancerous.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
