Which of the following are Diseases that the text says are more common in Women?

Women’s Diseases are more commonly enabled by their biology. What is their Biology? Women have all the usual human cells, plus they have a few dozen specialized sex cells called eggs growing inside of them. Their eggs eventually ripen and get released. Then travel from the ovaries down the fallopian tubes, where they can be fertilized by sperm.

This was a trick question. Women are more likely to develop diseases in the digestive, breast, and reproductive systems than men. But way more women die from heart disease than men. And two times as many women die from lung cancer as men even though there are more men smokers than women smokers.

Diseases that are more common in Women

The text says that breast cancer, ovarian cancer, and cervical cancer are more common in women.

Breast cancer is that the most typical kind of cancer among ladies,  per the  yank Cancer Society. In 2018, it’s estimated that 252,710 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer and 40,920 will die from it.

Ovarian cancer is a type of abdominal (belly) cancer that occurs when malignant cells form in the ovaries. Ovarian cancers are often treated with surgery to remove the affected ovary(s). According to the National Cancer Institute, approximately 22,280 new cases of ovarian cancer will be diagnosed in 2019. Ovarian cancers have a higher death rate than other types of female reproductive organ cancers because they’re often at an advanced stage when they’re diagnosed.

Cervical cancer occurs when abnormal cells develop on the surface of the cervix (the lower portion of the uterus). According to the American Cancer Society, about 12,680 new cases of invasive cervical cancer will be diagnosed in 2019 and 4,210 women will die from it.
