  • Cancer Insurance

  • What is Breast Cancer? Breast Cancer is a type of cancer that forms in the cells of the breasts. The symptoms of Breast Cancer include a lump in the breast, bloody discharge from the nipple, and changes in the shape or texture of the nipple or breast.
  • Cancer insurance or other limited benefit policies only pay for costs related to treatment for cancer or other specific diseases. Insurers generally will not sell these policies to cancer survivors and many states have banned or restricted their sale.
  • Ward 1: 9.6% Ward 2: 6.2% Ward 3: 11.5% Ward 4: 15.7%
  • Ward 5: 18.6% Ward 6: 11.1% Ward 7: 14.6% Ward 8: 12.2%
  • All races usually inherit Breast Cancer genetically. Women ages 65 and older usually are most common for Breast Cancer. 85.5% of older women who died because of Breast Cancer were ages 55 and older.
  • Here ye here ye Every girl at the age of 20 should get tested for Breast Cancer. And the government will pay your fees.
  • When Breast Cancer comes into play for high-class (high income) families they are easily able to deal with the charges of tests and, treatments like surgery or chemo. But, when Breast Cancer comes into play for low-class (low income) families it is very hard for them to be able to handle the fees of the cost of fees of what your insurance doesn't pay.
  • Since not many men get Breast Cancer I will talk more about the statistics of females than males. Ward 5 has the most amount of people with cancer because it has the least amount of young people and a huge amount of black people more than white people.
  • My Breast Cancer Health Policy is that at the age of 20 every girl in each ward should be forced to take a test to see if they have the chance of getting Breast Cancer. The government should make it's own section have a specific amount of money for each of the girls to have in order to pay their test fees.
