Cervical Cancer - 4 Common Causes

Cervical Cancer - 4 Common Causes

Cervical cancer is a type of cancer which emerges from the cervix. It occurs due to the abnormal growth of cells in the cervix (lower part of the uterus) of the female reproductive system. Cervical cancer is the most common type of cancer found in women, worldwide, and can be treated with successful results, if discovered at an initial stage.

This type of cancer can be caused by multiple factors, some of which are:

  1. Human papillomavirus - One of the major causes of cervical cancer is the human papillomavirus (HPV). There are more than 100 types of HPV. During sexual intercourse, a minimum of 40 types of HPV are passed, out of which 15 of them are high risks for cervical cancer, including types 16 and 18. 7 out of 10 women, who suffer from cervical cancer, are infected by types 16 and 18. However, most women, who are sexually active, will come under the influence of at least one type of HPV in their lifetime, without any kind of harm caused to them.
  2. Smoking - Smoking increases the risk of cervical cancer in women. It helps in the development of HPV, which is a major cause of this type of cancer. If a woman is already HPV-positive, smoking increases the probability of being diagnosed with cervical cancer by leaps and bounds.
  3. Oral contraceptives - Research shows that taking contraceptive pills increases the risk of cervical cancer in women. Women who've been on contraceptive pills for over 5 years are twice as more prone to being diagnosed with cervical cancer than those who are not on the pill. But as soon as you stop the intake of pills, the increased risk of cancer drops immediately.
  4. Multiple pregnancies - Having multiple pregnancies is linked with increased risk of cervical cancer. Having seven or more pregnancies increases the risk of this type of cancer in those women who are already influenced by HPV by four times. And those who have had one or two full-term pregnancies, also under the influence of HPV have two to three times the risk of being diagnosed with this illness.

Symptoms
Knowing about the symptoms of cervical cancer can help in the early diagnosis of this disease. However, in the early stages of the disease, there are no such noticeable symptoms. Although these signs can help you understand if you've got cervical cancer:
1. Abnormal vaginal bleeding, i.e. bleeding after sexual intercourse or after menopause
2. Longer period cycles
3. Bleeding after douching

Symptoms in the advanced stages of the illness are:
1. Loss of weight
2. Back pain
3. Leg pain
4. Fatigue
5. Swelling of legs
6. Fractures
7. Pelvic pain
8. Leakage of urine/feces from vagina

If you wish to discuss any specific problem, you can consult a gynaecologist.

Vaginal Cancer - 7 Common Symptoms

Vaginal Cancer - 7 Common Symptoms

Generally identified as a rare and uncommon phenomenon, vaginal cancer most often occurs in the cells present in the outer lining of the vagina, also called the birth canal. Although primary vaginal cancer is rare and unusual, there are various other types of vaginal cancer that originate elsewhere in the body, but have spread over to your vagina.

Depending upon the nature of origin, vaginal cancer can be divided into the following types:

  1. Vaginal adenocarcinoma, beginning in the glandular cells on the surface of your vagina
  2. Vaginal sarcoma, developing in the connective tissue cells and multiple cells lining the walls of your vagina
  3. Vaginal squamous cell carcinoma, originates in the squamous cells lining the surface of the bacteria
  4. Vaginal melanoma, developing in melanocytes, the pigment-producing cells in your vagina

Symptoms: As vaginal cancer progresses from one stage to the next, you may experience any one of the following signs and symptoms:

  1. Diluted, watery vaginal discharge
  2. Painful urination
  3. Constipation
  4. Odd cases vaginal bleeding, for instance, after menopause or after intercourse
  5. Formation of lumps in your vagina
  6. Frequent and regular urination
  7. Pelvic pain

Causes: Normally, cancer develops when healthy cells undergo genetic mutations. Cancer cells are known to break off from pre-existing tumors and can easily spread everywhere, in what is referred to as metastasize.

Beyond the natural process of development, here are a few factors, which may further contribute to the growth of cancerous cells:

  1. Increasing age
  2. Vaginal intraepithelial neoplasia 

    If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a gynaecologist.

I am 49 years old, my problem is that I am suffering from Chronic Leukemia, and my question is how long can such patient live with medication of IMATINIB 400 mg?

Hi, imatinib 400 mg, as I understand, is an approved targeted therapy for front-line management of chronic myeloid leukemia (cml), success of which depends on whether or not it has been able to achieve a timely haematological response as expected. Imatinib is good so long as your disease is chronic, not advanced and is not resistant to imatinib. Your medical oncologist can best comment on the overall survival aspects, nevertheless. However, its advisable that you complement conventional care with appropriate alternative medicines so as to fast track treatment, and optimize clinical outcomes.

I have some fode in y back these are sign of cancer? Which test for the cancer is required to know about this.

DNB, MBBS
Oncologist, Faridabad
You must consult a surgeon to exactly identify the Nature of lump, most likely it would be benign but ofcourse warrants attention. Fnac may be performed or if clinically suspicious incisional biopsy may be performed. Lot can be ruled out by clinical evaluation.

I am 56 years old I am having prostate problem I cant say since how long sometimes I have to frequently go for urine with 1 hour interwal 4-5 times please advise remedy.

Felllow in Endourology, MCh Urology, MRCS, MS, MBBS
Urologist,
I am 56 years old I am having prostate problem I cant say since how long sometimes I have to frequently go for urine ...
Dear, I am sorry to know about your problem. Your symptoms can be caused by enlarged prostate with overactive bladder, urinary retention with overflow, urinary infection, bladder or ureteric stones, tumour of prostate or bladder and some other rare conditions. So it is important to diagnose correctly and start the treatment. I would advise you to get the following tests done: ultrasonogram abdomen with post void residual urine, uroflowmetry, urine microscopy and serum prostate specific antigen (psa) after ruling out urinary infection. It is also important to get your prostate palpated by a urologist to rule out a tumour in prostate. There are good drugs to control the symptoms caused by prostate enlargement and overactive bladder. However, without evaluating with the above basic tests it is not appropriate to start a treatment blindly. Please get back to me with the above report. I will be in a better position to guide you further. Wish you good health
