Cervical Cancer - Causes and Testing for Diagnosis

Cervical Cancer - Causes and Testing for Diagnosis

What causes cervical Cancer?

Genital Human papilloma virus (HPV) is a very common virus in both men and women that can lead to the development of genital warts, abnormal cervical cells or cervical cancer.

This virus can cause normal cells on your cervix (Know more about Cervix Infection) to turn abnormal. Over many years, abnormal cells can turn into cancer if they are not found and treated by your doctor. It can take 10 to 15 years (or more) for cells to change from normal to abnormal, and then into cancer. Abnormal cells are sometimes called 'pre cancer ' because they are not normal, but they are not yet cancer.

You cannot see or feel HPV or these cell changes on your cervix. Screening tests help us to look for these changes or for abnormal cells (Learn more about sexually transmitted diseases)

How is HPV spread?

HPV is transmitted during genital skin to-skin sexual contact. This includes vaginal or anal sex and possibly oral sex.A person can get HPV even if years have passed since he or she had sex. They will never know it because HPV usually has no signs and symptoms.

In most cases, HPV goes away within two years, without causing any health problems. It is thought that the immune system  fights off HPV infection naturally

What screening tests exist for HPV- related diseases?

Cervical Cancer: Cervical cancer can be detected with routine Cervical cancer screening (Pap test) and follow-up of abnormal results. The Pap test can find abnormal cells on the cervix so that they can be removed before cancer develops.    Abnormal cells often become normal over time, but can sometimes turn into cancer. These cells can usually be treated, depending on their severity and on the woman's age, past medical history, and other test results.

An HPV DNA test, which can find certain HPV types on a woman's cervix, may also be used with a Pap test in certain cases (called co-testing). The HPV-DNA test is done to determine if you are infected with one of the high-risk types or if your doctor finds certain type of abnormal Pap test result.

Even women who were vaccinated when they were younger need regular cervical cancer screening because the vaccines do not protect against all cervical cancer strains.

Is there a treatment for HPV or related problems?

HPV vaccination could prevent most cancers and other diseases caused by HPV. There is no treatment for the virus itself, but there are treatments for the problems that HPV can cause:

Visible genital warts may remain the same, grow more in number, or go away on their own. The warts can be treated when they appear.

Abnormal cervical cells (found on a Pap test) often become normal over time, but they can sometimes turn into cancer. If they remain abnormal, these cells can usually be treated to prevent cervical cancer from developing. This may depend on the severity of the cell changes, the woman's age , past medical history, and other test results. It is critical to follow up with testing and treatment, as recommended by a doctor.

Post detection of ovarian cancer the doctors , depending on your cancer stage can recommend the treatment more- surgery, medical treatment, radiation therapy or chemotherapy.

What are the symptoms of blood cancer I have already seen the symptoms in affected person which I'm seeing now on my own Frnd is there any possibilities to be same.

DNB, MBBS
Oncologist, Faridabad
Dear sir, symptoms are due to overpopulation of one of the components of blood leading to suppression of others.hence symptoms may be frequent infection, bleeding, fever, anaemia, easy bruising, weight loss, lumps, bone pains etc. Routine cbc and blood smears are good for screening before symptoms arise.

Hi, I have a girl child of 21 days. While feeding to her I feel pain in left breast, & it is hard compared to right side breast. Due to it I got fever. Is it any problem with left breast? How it will become soft? Please answer!

MBBS, M S General Surgery ,
General Surgeon, Chandigarh
Hi since you r retaining milk may be in the left breast you need to take out your milk first second take care of your self and if fever increases or pain increases then you need to show it to a surgeon near by there is a possibility that you will develop abscess that means pus .it happens with mothers those who breast feed. So do not worry for pain you can have tab paracetamol 650 mg twice a day .for fever also the same. Take care.

There is a little secretion in the breasts from the sixteenth week of pregnancy which keeps the ducts open and ready to function. You have not mentioned about pregnancy. This can be treated by homoeopathy. Consult privately.Rs 149/

It is not cancer, as it has pain with menstruation it is most probably fibroadenoma, a benign tumor. Do not worry about that as it will be got reduced in future.

What is cancer? Is there any medicines for this disease? Is there any prevention methods. If yes please tell me doctor. Thank you in advance.:)

DNB, MBBS
Oncologist, Faridabad
Cancer is caused by abnormal uncontrolled proliferation of cells, usually caused by some faulty signals in the body which lose check over few cells and they become autonomous. It can be lifestyle related like lack of exercise, sedentary lifestyle, fatty food, hormonal imbalance, viruses, pollution, smoking, tobacco, or may be genetic. One must be careful about what we eat and what kind of environmental factors effect us in our surrounding and avoid known carcinogens. Regular screening and health check up to rule out any early disease prior to producing symptoms. Turmeric, tulsi leaves, wheat grass etc have anticancer properties.

If it is operable, go for surgery first. Depending on the postoperative pathology report further treatment will be decided. If it is inoperable, but nonmetastatic, then go for concomitant chemoradiotherapy first. This will be followed by surgery.

Hi. I am a female aged 27 years and married. I am having pain on the sides of my breasts. Please suggest what needs to be done and why its happening.

You should go to a doctor so that you can be examined. Pain in breasts just before menstruation is common and is usually harmless. However its best to be examined before any medication is started.
