Be aware of signs of gynecologic cancer

September. It’s gynecologic cancer month again. Every year this month the Humboldt Community Breast Health Project, where I facilitate a gynecologic cancer support group, makes an extra effort to get the word out about ovarian, uterine, cervical, and vulvar cancer. This year my goal is slightly different. I don’t want to just get the word out; I’m working toward “The Tipping Point.” Made notable in the book of the same name by Malcom Gladwell, the tipping point is where an idea or trend gains enough momentum to “tip” into widespread knowledge and behavior change.
