Signs of Gynecological Cancer

MBBS, DGO

Signs of Gynecological Cancer

Being diagnosed with cancer is something no one looks forward to and Gynaecological Cancer is every woman’s worst nightmare. However, if diagnosed in time, it can be treated. Cancer in any part of a woman’s reproductive system is termed as gynecological cancer. It is of five types:

  1. Cervical cancer

  2. Ovarian cancer

  3. Vaginal cancer

  4. Vulvar cancer and

  5. Uterine cancer

Paying attention to your body and understanding its natural rhythm can help you recognize signs of gynecological cancer. This is because signs of gynecological cancer can be difficult to identify unless you know your body. Here are a five signs to watch out for-

  1. Abnormal Vaginal Bleeding: Bleeding in between periods is okay once in a while but if it happens continuously over a period of 2 to 3 months, do not ignore it. Vaginal bleeding after menopause should also never be ignored. Abnormal bleeding could be triggered by a number of conditions including cancer of the lining of the uterus. Sudden changes in your menstrual blood that persist for over 2 cycles such as heavy bleeding can also be a symptom of uterine cancer. Heavy bleeding can be defined as a period that lasts for over 7 days.

  2. Changes in the Vulva: Any change in colour of development of bumps, sores of thickened skin should be immediately shown to a gynecologist. Any form of vulvar itching or burning should also not be ignored. These conditions could be symptoms of vulvar cancer. Hence, it is important to know what your vulva looks like normally.

  3. Bloating: Persistent bloating that lasts for over a fortnight can be a sign of ovarian cancer. This is especially true in cases of bloating accompanied by sudden weight loss or between-period bleeding.

  4. Change in Bathroom Habits: Due to the proximity of the bladder to the reproductive organs, a tumour or swelling in the reproductive organs can trigger symptoms similar to those of a urinary tract infection. This includes pain while urinating, difficulty passing urine, diarrhea or constipation. Urinary incontinence could also a sign of gynecological cancer.

  5. Abdominal or Back Pain: In rare cases, lower back pain could be a sign of ovarian cancer or uterine cancer. Pain in the lower abdomen or pelvic area can also be a sign of ovarian cancer.

The above could also be signs of other health disorders. The only way of knowing for sure is by consulting a doctor. Hence, understand your body and if you notice any of these symptoms consult your gynecologist at the earliest.

What are the early or initial stage symptoms of breast cancer and how soon they can be diagnosed?

Hi lybrate-user, I appreciate you seeking help. Symptoms, of breast cancer, manifest majorly in the following ways - a. Lump/ nodule in the breast that gets attached to the skin of the breast over time. The lump / nodule could be hard and painless with irregular edges or it could also be soft, rounded, tender and painful. B. Enlarged lymph nodes in the axilla which are palpable. C. Swelling of whole or a part of a breast. This is even if there is no distinct lump felt. D. Retraction or thickening of the nipple (s). E. Pain in the breast or nipple. F. Discharge from nipple other than breast milk. G. Irritation/ scaliness of skin over the breast. H. Redness of nipples i. Rarely, red, swollen and tender breast. To be on a safer side, once one gets to experience any of the above-mentioned, its advisable that one gets this clinically examined by her OB/ GYN right away and not delay any further. Imaging, either through mammography or MRI subsequently followed by a biopsy is always the gold standard for accurate diagnosis of breast cancer. Hope this clarifies. Take care. Sincerely

Sir, I have a lump in my left breast for so long. Only in the left not in right. It does not hurt but is it serious problem?

MD - Obstetrtics & Gynaecology
Gynaecologist, Mumbai
It looks like it is fibroadenoma, it should be removed after initial investigation like mammography and sonography of the breast and/or FNAC if it is painful. Fibroadenomas are not cancer and don’t increase the risk of developing breast cancer. They occur because of an increased sensitivity to the female hormone estrogen. A fibroadenoma usually has a smooth rubbery feel and can move easily under the skin. They are usually painless, but some people may feel pain. It is very common can occur in numbers. It can occur at any age. Most are about 1 to 3cm in size but occasionally, it can grow to more than 5cm. Most fibroadenomas stay the same size. Some get smaller and some eventually disappear over time. Sometimes surgery is required to remove large fibroadenomas.

Breast me glands ho hata hai ar uska operation karwane k kuch saal baad phir agar glands ho jata hai to kya karna chahiye agar aise hi usko chod diya jaye to koi problem to nhi hoga.

HI Lybrate user First of all you should consult a local gynaecologist to get your physical examination of breast done. If it is benign then treatment is different. Sometimes only vit .E and evening primerose oil helps. But if it is otherwise, the treatment is different. The doctor may recommend digital mammography and FNAC (fine needle aspiration cytology- syringe se mass le kar lab. Me test karvaya jata hai ki kiss trah ka mass hai) yeh baht simple test hai. Let your doctor decide what to do in your case whether treatment is required or it can be left as such.

Do chickens and cows get cancer? And if so, is it dangerous to eat cancerous meat?

DNB, MBBS

Animals do get cancer but it is unlikely that it can be transmitted by Eating animal meat. One should eat properly cooked meat to avoid infection but cancer is not a communicable disease and it doesn't survive in dead cells.

Hi sir my mother is having triple negative breast cancer and it is in stage 2. Her treatment is completed. How many years will she survive and what are the precautions we have to take.

MBBS, DNB - Surgery, Fellowship in Breast Surgical Oncology
Oncologist, Gurgaon
It is unpredictable that how long she will survive. Also there are no precautions that can prevent her from not having cancer again. Precautions can only decrease the risk. She needs to have regular follow ups with her treating doctor as per advice so that if any recurrence happens, it can be detected early and managed accordingly. Also maintain a healthy lifestyle and be physically active.

Please suggest proper diet for ovarian cancer after surgery and during radiotherapy.

DNB, MBBS
Oncologist, Faridabad
Usually ovarian cancer are treated with surgery and chemotherapy. The diet during and after chemotherapy should be balanced and hygienic means eat properly cooked home made food. Avoid street food. It should have adequate proteins and carbohydrate. Avoid oily food. You can take non veg but cooked and less spicy. Leafy vegetables, soya nuggets soups and multigrain preparation help in recovery.

Dear lybrate-user, cancer does not spread though blood or air, it happens in one's body. Cancer develops within the body, and is known by symptoms. It can be cured totally in most of instances if diagnosed in early stages.

Mr. Lybrate-user, sugar substitutes like saccharine, aspartame and sucralose (splenda), all these are equally bad. The recent studies on sucralose confirm that it affects intestinal bacteria, reduces them by 50 % and leads to various problems. The earlier ones like aspartame is also not safe. Whether cancers are caused or not is a different matter, but better to avoid them. These lead to weight gain and contribute metabolic syndrome. Please make habit to avoid artficial sweeteners completely. Thanks.
