India is a traditional country which had different regions, different religions, different languages, different foods, and different cultures. India’s culture is the world’s oldest culture; civilization in India began about 4,500 years ago. In the population census of 2011, India has 1.2 billion people; the second-most populous country after China. India is identified as the birthplace of Hinduism and Buddhism, the third and fourth-largest religions. About 80% of the population identifies as Hindu, 14% Muslims, 2.3 percent is Christian, 1.7 percent is Sikh and rest is unspecified. The current male population is almost 51.6% and the female population is 48.4% which is almost equal.

Today we entered in the 21st century and the role of women is increasing day by day in our society. Now they are very ambitious, daring and taking part in every activity of our society. They have proved in every sector that now they are not less than anyone. They are playing many roles in our family as well as in our society but there is a bitter truth, “Women’s life is more complicated than a man’s life.” It is not here in India, it is everywhere. A survey report said that female get more infected of disease than a male. Currently, women are facing numerous health issues, which ultimately affect the aggregate economy’s output. Here are the top 6 common diseases in women in India that everyone should know about:

Heart Disease: – You believe it or not but it’s true that heart disease affects women way more than it does men. Every year approximately 4.25 Lakh women have a stroke which is 55 thousand more as compared to men. And if we see globally, out of 4 women, 1 dies of heart failure. High blood pressure, high cholesterol, smokes, etc. they are the leading killer. There is one more reason for this disease is that females are more emotional than a male. Heart disease is responsible for about 29% of the death of women.

I would request to all women to keep your emotions aside and to educate themselves about the issues and educate others as well.

Breast Cancer: – A report of “The Global Burden of Cancer 2013” shows that breast cancer is one of the top causes of cancer deaths among women in India. After 1990 to 2019, the breast cancer rate has been doubled. The main reason for breast cancer is the paradigm shift in lifestyle. The paradigm shift in lifestyle means, late marriages, delay in having first child, less breastfeeding, etc. and some of the women are thinking that these are modern fashion. One more interesting thing is that this cancer is despite being one of the most treatable cancers and most women only come to know when they have already reached stage 3 and 4. Women are not talking with doctors about this disease as they feel ashamed or due to fear or due to family/society pressure. Breast cancer is curable if a patient contact with the doctor on time. This is your life so don’t be ashamed.

I would request to all women to keep your shyness aside and contact the doctor if you have any problem because it’s your body part, it’s your life. Educate yourself and educate others as well.

Ovarian and Cervical Cancer: – Ovarian cancer and cervical cancer are different. Ovarian cancer starts in the fallopian tubes while cervical cancer originates in the lower uterus. Both conditions cause similar pain during intercourse.

Cervical cancer is the second most common cancer worldwide and in India as well. It has beaten breast cancer as the leading cause of cancer deaths in women in India. Human Papilloma Virus (HPV) which is transmitted through sexual contact is the main cause of cervical cancer. Bad local hygiene, too many children, not enough spacing between children, low nutrition levels and early marriage, all contribute to the risk factors.

Pap smears test can detect cervical cancer but not ovarian cancer. You can check every 3 years and you can take the vaccination also.

I would request to all women to keep your emotions aside and to educate themselves about the issues and educate others as well.

Osteoporosis: – The term osteoporosis is synonymous with women, low calcium, and weak bones leading to fractures. The reason for osteoporosis is the deficiency of Calcium and vitamin D which reduces the density of bone. Vitamin D deficiency caused by low exposure to sunlight and low dietary. Almost everyone whose age is 40+ is suffering from Osteoporosis. After a certain age, women require iron, vitamins, calcium, zinc, etc. Some women are doing over exercise to reduce weight have more chances of osteoporosis.

I would request to all women to go out from your air conditioner room and take some sunlight. Sunlight kills skin germs also.

Vaginal infections (Vaginitis): – Some women have itching and redness around their vagina. Abnormal vaginal discharge with an unpleasant smell, burning sensation during urination and/or pain during intercourse, all these symptoms show that it could be vaginitis. Tight and infectious clothing, bad quality sanitation pads, sexual activity, etc. could be the reason for vaginitis. The vagina is a very sensitive body part and if suppose you use the un-hygienic toilet, might be you will be infected due to bacteria. The excessive white discharge could be also a reason for vaginitis.

I would advise all women that precaution is better than cure.

Urinary Tract Infection (UTI): – This is also the most common disease in women in India. Urinary tract infection (UTI) affects the urinary tract and is more commonly seen in women than men because women have much shorter urethras. UTI may cause burning pain during urination, frequent urination and/or urgency to urinate. Fever and pain may also be seen. The infection may also be viral or fungal. If a woman is suffering from UTI again and again, it could be affecting your kidney also.

I would advise all women to intake a lot of water if you are suffering from UTI.

These are the major common disease in women in India. Although there are many more diseases like Anemia, Depression, Obesity, Liver Disease, Thyroid, Arthritis, etc. which are also common in women. You need to take care of yourself at all stages and do not be shy about anything and do not take any kind of risk against your health and body as you are a driver of your family. If you stop, your family will stop. Do take care of yourself because our future, our society’s future, and our country’s future depend on you.

Once again I request you all to do take care of yourself – for yourself and our-self.
