Women’s Health Care

Women’s Health Care

Women have unique health issues such as pregnancy, menopause, and conditions of the female organs.  Some health issues are similar for both men and women, but they may occur more frequently in women or affect them differently.  For example, gallstones, irritable bowel syndrome and urinary tract infection (including bladder infection& kidney infection) and osteoporosisaffect both men and women but occur with higher frequency in women.

The leading causes of death such as cardiovascular disease, cancer and lung disease, are similar in women and men but women have different experiences. Certain cancers are of specific concern to women. The leading causes of cancer death in women are breast, colorectal, ovarian, uterine and cervical cancers.
