Urothelial carcinoma (UC) of the bladder is three times more common in men. By the age of 40, the tumor is sporadic. After the 5th decade, however, the incidence increased sharply. The complications caused by UC worsen the quality of life of patients. UC is the second most common neoplasm of the urogenital system after prostate cancer and is one of the biggest challenges that the World Health Organization (WHO) faces.</p> 2020-09-04T18:45:42+06:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement## Lifestyles and Cancer: A Brief Review 2020-12-22T00:28:32+06:00 Shashi K.

Cervical squamous cell carcinoma is the leading cause of death among women aged 35 to 54 years and the second most common cause among women aged 15 to 34 years after breast carcinoma. Most patients are diagnosed at an early stage of the disease, probably due to routine prenatal screening. The occurrence of invasive cervical carcinoma is relatively uncommon in pregnant women. However, cancer treatment during pregnancy currently remains one of the main and biggest therapeutic challenges in cervical cancer. The therapeutic approach should be customized and depends mainly on histology, disease stage, and gestational age. We present a case concerning a 26-year-old woman with invasive moderately differentiated keratinizing squamous cell cervical carcinoma, stage pT2b, N1, M0/ FIGOIIB, during pregnancy (4<sup>th</sup> lunar month).</em></p> <p><em>&nbsp;</em></p> 2020-12-31T00:00:00+06:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement##
