Introduction

The following has the basic objective of providing information to all the people interested in the well-being. Of the Guatemalan who suffer from health problems affect a high percentage of adult whose families live in poverty or extreme poverty 90% of them in the rural area. The health problem we focus on is breast cancer, gastric cancer, cervix cancer and testicular cancer.

Breast cancer:  has increased its frequency in Guatemala, requires of multidisciplinary treatment with chemotherapy, surgery and radiotherapy, discovered in early stages is curable. National cancer institute was diagnosed 246 new cases of breast cancer.

Gastric cancer: diagnoses almost always in stages advanced. The treatment is expensive, and requires important nutritional support. Most of patients they are economically active people. in national cancer institute diagnoses two cases of gastric cancer to the day.

Cevical cancer: Cancer that forms in tissues of the cervix (the organ connecting the uterus and vagina). It is usually a slow-growing cancer that may not have symptoms but can be found with regular Pap tests (a procedure in which cells are scraped from the cervix and looked at under a microscope).

Testicular cancer:  is a highly treatable, often curable, cancer that usually develops in young and middle-aged men. Testicular cancer is broadly divided into seminoma and nonseminoma types for treatment planning because seminomas are more sensitive to radiation therapy. For patients with seminoma (all stages combined), the cure rate exceeds 90%. For patients with low-stage disease, the cure rate approaches 100%
