Breast cancer is an issue worth attention in the United States and the entire globe at large. There is increased awareness at the rate at which most of the women are succumbing to the disease each year. It is a disease that cuts across all colors, age, and regions although further research can bring out some variations among the named variables. It is a disease that has awakened the scientists and medical experts to research in order to determine its exact cause with the goal of a breakthrough into the cure. The focus of the paper will be concerned with the causes of breast cancer, the relationship between the disease versus race and age, the signs and symptoms (Fayed, 2018) that will help in classification of breast cancer into different types.
Research Method and Design Appropriateness
Three research methods are proven scientifically; the experimental, the opinion based and observational methods. In any research different factors and criteria are considered in the determination of the method of research to be applied. In this case, the experimental research methods will be very significant. Along with the medical experts in a hospital, various tests will be done of patients to determine if they have breast cancer. Besides that, observational research method will be applied (Bell et al, 2018). This will be useful in the determination of the signs and symptoms that link to breast cancer. The quantitative research measurements will be applied in the sampling and the recording of the number of breast cancer patients within a sample location. More also, qualitative methods such as the human behavior of the black and Caucasian women will be observed. The results from such an approach will be used in verification if breast cancer is more prevalent in a certain race than another. Additionally, the scholarly literature on breast cancer will be analyzed to offer to define the framework for the research.
Breast cancer has been ranked high due to the number of deaths it causes within the U.S. Therefore, the research that is focused on the more substantial portion of U.S would be significant is creating awareness as well as educating the public about breast cancer (Holliday et al, 2011). Additionally, women working with companies that deal with electromagnetic radiations will also be considered. By so doing, an informative conclusion between breast cancer and working environment would be made.
From the introduction of the research paper, there are many sample sizes in relation to breast cancer that was collected. The samples were for the race, age and working environment. These samples were analyzed in comparison to the previous literature leading to a specific conclusion. The samples of women working in companies that radiate electromagnetic radiations were compared against those working in radiation-free zones. Such a comparison was useful in the testing of the hypothesis.
The collection of data wasn’t a walk in the park. Some approaches such as evaluating the secondary sources concerning breast cancer were more straightforward. However, liaising with the medical facilities dealing with diagnosis and treatment of breast cancer occupied the largest pie of the source of data.
From the collected data as well as the support of the secondary sources, the black women tend to suffer from breast cancer more as compared to Hispania and Caucasian women. The conclusion for this was that black women take less care. Additionally, there were high chances of women who have breast cancer working in a radiation environment as compared to those working in electromagnetic radiations free zones. Lastly, women in 50s or above have breast cancer as compared to younger ones (Anders et al., 2009).
