Forewarned is forearmed!

1.) Ovarian Cancer

The survival rate for ovarian cancer is less than five years after diagnosis because it usually spreads to the lymph nodes or stomach and bowels before detection.
Ovarian cancer is a deadly cancer because of the length of time it takes to detect it. Symptoms of ovarian cancer include bloating, feeling full early in the meal, weight loss, and constipation, all of which are common and vague.

2.) HPV
Human papillomavirus is the most common sexually transmitted disease in the United States. HPV can be transmitted through oral, vaginal, and anal sex.
High risk HPV usually shows no symptoms, and most cases clear within 2 years. However, in some cases HPV can progress to cancer of the cervix, vulva, vagina, penis, *****, throat, tonsils, and tongue.

3.)Chlamydia
Chlamydia is a sexually transmitted disease that often does not have symptoms until it is in the advanced stages. Chlamydia is transmitted through unprotected oral, vaginal, or anal sex and when left untreated can cause pelvic inflammatory disease and infertility.
Chlamydia can also be passed from mother to child during birth, potentially causing blindness or pneumonia in the newborn.

4.)PAH

Pulmonary arterial hypertension is an aggressive disease of the heart and lungs for which there is no cure, except a double-lung and heart transplant.
Primary symptoms are shortness of breath, tiredness, and weakness, which are so vague that PAH often goes undetected until it has progressed to the final stages of the disease.


5.)Pancreatic Cancer
Pancreatic Cancer is a fast growing cancer that usually does not show symptoms until the advanced stages. For this reason it often has a poor prognosis, even if it's caught early, and is a leading cause of cancer death.
Symptoms of pancreatic cancer can include loss of appetite, weight loss, pain in the upper stomach, and jaundice.

6.)Lung Cancer

Lung Cancer is another type of cancer which doesn't normally show symptoms in its earlier stages.
Once it's more advanced, symptoms can include chest pain, coughing up blood, hoarseness, shortness of breath and wheezing.

7.)Chronic Kidney
Disease Chronic kidney disease occurs when someone has a history of uncontrolled high blood pressure and/or diabetes. The symptoms of CKD are numbness in the hands or feet, cessation of menstruation, and severe joint pain, but these do not appear until someone has lost at least 25 percent of his or her kidney function.
Getting screened for kidney disease annually is a good preventative measure.

8.)Mesothelioma

Mesothelioma is a rare cancer that is caused by asbestos exposure. It is difficult to diagnose because early symptoms are subtle and are often overlooked.
Another problem with this cancer is that the latency period is very long, sometimes between 35 and 40 years. Often it will progress to an advanced stage before a diagnosis is made.
