Women’s Health Conditions
It’s often impossible to trace the origins of a woman’s health condition. We don’t know why some women get uterine fibroids and others do not, for instance. Some illnesses, such as breast cancer, may exhibit no symptoms at all, and might be discovered for the first time during a regular mammography screening.
The symptoms and causes of women’s health issues vary tremendously. It’s important for every woman to be aware of how she feels in her healthiest state, receive the health screenings her physician or practitioner recommends, and be proactive in contacting her primary care practitioner or gynecologist when something doesn’t feel right.
