Volunteer Germaine's Story
This past summer I was assigned to work alongside the cervical cancer team of the Patcha foundation medical mission...One of the highlights of my experience was a young female around her mid 20-30s who came in for a breast and cervical cancer screen.

Then she added that she may have cancer of the uterus as well. When I finished taking the history, I walked with the patient to the screening rooms to help with her screening. I recall mentioning to the nurse that I thought that the patient had a malignant stomach tumor which had metastasized to the ovaries. According to medical books, such tumors are called krukenberg tumors. Read More
