Cervical Cancer - Symptoms And Treatment!

Cervical Cancer - Symptoms And Treatment!

Cervical cancer occurs when abnormal cells on the cervix grow out of control. The cervix is the lower part of the uterus that opens into the vagina. Cervical Cancer is one of the most common ailments that women suffer from, making it only more important to be taken seriously and treated immediately.

Most cervical cancer is caused by a virus called human papillomavirus, or HPV. You can get HPV by having sexual contact with someone who has it. There are many types of the HPV virus. Not all types of HPV cause cervical cancer. Some of them cause genital warts, but other types may not cause any symptoms.

Most adults have been infected with HPV at some time. An infection may go away on its own. But sometimes it can lead to cervical cancer. That's why it's important for women to have regular screening. A screening can find changes in cervical cells before they turn into cancer. If you treat these cell changes, you may prevent cervical cancer.

Symptoms of Cervical Cancer may include:

  1. Bleeding from the vagina that is not normal, such as bleeding between menstrual periods, after sex, or after menopause.
  2. Persistent abnormal discharge.

Cervical cancer is the easiest gynecologic cancer to prevent, with regular screening tests and follow-up. Two screening tests can help prevent cervical cancer or find it early:

  1. The Pap test (or Pap smear) looks for precancers, cell changes on the cervix that might become cervical cancer if they are not treated appropriately.
  2. The HPV test looks for the virus (human papillomavirus) that can cause these cell changes.

When to Get Screened

You should start getting regular Pap tests at age 21. The Pap test, which screens for cervical cancer, is one of the most reliable and effective cancer screening tests available. The Pap test is the best way to find cervical cell changes that can lead to cervical cancer. Regular Pap tests almost always show these cell changes before they turn into cancer. It's important to follow up with your doctor after any abnormal Pap test result so you can treat abnormal cell changes. This may help prevent cervical cancer.

Treatment-

In spite of being a fatal ailment, over the years various treatments have evolved that deal with this problem effectively. Some of them are:

1. Surgery: One of the effective and oft availed treatment to cure cervical cancer is surgery. Depending on the stage on which the disease is detected, doctors may suggest for a hysterectomy or removing the pelvic nymph nodes.

2. Chemotherapy: This has emerged as the most sought after way of treating any form of cancer. The abnormal growth of cells that triggers cancer in the first place is deterred in this method by administering drugs to destroy them.

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

My mother had adenocarcinoma of lung which was diagnosed on 5/6 when pet ct was performed and has egfr mutation in exon 19. She also has neurological symptoms like vision loss, hearing loss, vomiting and headache. There is suspicion of metastatic to brain but csf cytology has been negative for 5 consecutive times at regular intervals. How can we confirm if it has metastized or no?

MRI brain was done? Usually it is diagnosed on mri rather than CSF cytology. Pet ct is not good to detect brain mets. What is the pet report? What is the local stage and any mets? If metastatic or advanced inoperable, since the egfr mutation is present, she is a candidate for Geftinib or preferably osimertinib. I would be able to opine better if you could share all her reports. Feel free to contact me directly if you want to discuss this further.

Hello Doctor, In a recent USG report of my father, 60 years of age, his prostate showing moderate to gross enlarge in size measuring 80.3 cc and median lobe indenting into bladder wall. I am so much worried since he is difficult urinating with an average of 10 to 15 times in a day. Doctors just suggested medicines & a PSA test that yet to come. Is this serious? Will it be fine with medicines or we should go for TURP? Need your help asap!

Hi, if he is responding well to medicines, he may not require surgery. PSA report is important. And if his prostate is 80g and if he does require surgery Holimium Laser prostatectomy (HoLEP) would be a better option than TURP for such a large prostate.
