Cervical CanceroThe cells of the cervix are susceptible to mutation especially with the presence of certainviruses such as HPV. Cervical cells can change and over time mutate into cancer cells without a woman experiencing other symptoms. Symptoms of cervical cancer don't usually occur until the abnormal cervical cells invade surrounding vaginal and cervical tissue. Testicular CanceroLike other cancers, testicular cancer in the early stages has no specific symptoms. A common symptom is a lump in the testicle. LeukemiaoWhen blood cells mutate and become cancerous, leukemia can result. Acute leukemia isthe major form affecting children, and its symptoms appear quickly. Chronic leukemia is the major form affecting adults and is characterized by a slow progression of symptoms. The major signs of leukemia are fatigue, paleness, weight loss, repeated infections, fever,bruising easily, nosebleeds, and other hemorrhages. Skin CanceroSkin cancer is an epidemic. Symptoms of skin cancer are more ambiguous than other forms of cancer discussed because the symptoms are mostly changes on the skin, so onehas to notice those changes.

    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.
