cervical-cancer

The cancer of the cervix early stages may not have any symptoms at all. Thus, a woman may not suspect she is already suffering from the disease until she experienced some of its symptoms such as:

* Bleeding after intercourse, in between periods or in postmenopausal women

* Sexual intercourse discomfort

* Strong odor or blood-tinged vaginal discharge

* Pelvic pain

Given that the condition is asymptomatic, it is a preventive measure to regularly have a Pap test or cervical smear tests in order to detect if there are any changes of cells that can mean possible cancer development.

Stages

Stage 0: Precancerous cells are present

Stage 1: There is a growth of the cancer cells from the surface right on to deeper tissues of the cervix

Stage 2: Cancer cells already moved beyond the cervix and uterus

Stage 3: Cancer cells are already in the lower part of the pelvis walls or the vagina

Stage 4: The bladder or the rectum is already affected

    In the early stages of cervical cancer, it may not cause symptoms, but as slowly the cancer progresses, the most common signs and symptoms of cervical cancer include abnormal vaginal bleeding, increased vaginal discharge, pain during sex and pelvic pain. Cervical cancer is different from cancer that begins in other regions of the uterus and if detected early, cervical cancer has a very high cure rate.
