Such cysts are usually of tuberculous in nature. That can be confirmed after biopsy only. Tuberculosis can be treated medically. If it is non-tuberculous, then surgery is must.

Understanding the Stages & Symptoms of Uterine Cancer

Gynaecologist, Delhi
Understanding the Stages & Symptoms of Uterine Cancer

The uterus is a very important organ within the human reproductive system as this is the chamber where an embryo grows into a baby. Due to a multitude of factors, the incidence of uterine cancer has been on the rise. Let's look at some of its symptoms.

Symptoms of uterine cancer: When cells within the uterus grow abnormally and turn malignant, it may be termed as uterine cancer. This may be in the form of a fibroid or tumor or be part of the uterine tissue itself. It may be caused due to a multitude of factors such as late menopause, radiation exposure, estrogen treatments and many others. Some of the common symptoms for uterine cancer could be:

  • Pain in the abdomen, lower back and especially the pelvic area.
  • Pain during urination,
  • Weight loss without any apparent reason
  • Vaginal bleeding with or without discharge
  • Pain during sex

Stages of uterine cancer: Before we understand the stages of uterine cancer you need to know how doctors diagnose the various stages. This is done by the three following steps in the TNM method:

  1. Tumor: Doctors try and search for tumors and locate them within the uterus, estimate its size and whether it is malignant or not.
  2. Node: If the tumor is malignant, then doctors try to find out whether the tumor has reached the lymph nodes or not.
  3. Metastasis: Doctors look for Metastasis, which is whether the cancer has spread to other organs within the body and to what extent.

Stages of cancer: Cancer is primarily grouped in five stages from 0 to V according to the T, N and M stages mentioned below.

  • Stage 0 - This is a very early stage of cancer where the cells have malignant growth but are still small in number and haven't spread anywhere.
  • Stage I - If the cancer has developed a little, but is restricted within the uterus, it is considered as stage one. This is also further divided into Stage 1A and 1B.
  • Stage II - When the cancer has started spreading, but only to some parts of the cervix from the uterus, it is diagnosed as stage 2 uterine cancer.
  • Stage III - Categorized into Stage IIIA, Stage IIIB, Stage IIIC1 and Stage IIIC2, it is primarily where the cancer has spread to other organs, but it is only limited to the pelvic area.
  • Stage IV A - When the cancer has gone beyond the pelvic area and also spread to the rectum and bladder area.
  • Stage IV B - This is where the cancer has metastasized in the groin area or gone to other organs within the body as well.

I am someone who take least amount of vegetables. And eat a lot of junk food. What could be possibility for me to get affected by cancer?

Oncologist, Faridabad
Vegetables and fruits contain substances that are cancer protective which junk food lacks. There is no conclusive data as to what percentage of people consuming junk food would definitely have cancer but but there is no harm in avoiding it and you can try variations with your routine healthy food to make it delicious and colorful, with fruits you can try various puddings, fruit cream, custards, with vegetables nice rolls, soups sandwiches etc. Sedentary lifestyle, fatty food are known to be risk factors for cancer.

Breast tenderness may occur due to infection or it may occur with menstrual cycle in some ladies. Ca15.3 is not useful in this condition. Is the tenderness localised or diffuse? if any doubt, ultrasound of breast may be done considering young age of the lady. Please review with details.

the tablet needs to be changed if B.P is not under control. For sugar we can put her on insulin . She is under going stress as she is being treated for cancer . Stress causes difficulty in controlling B.P and blood sugar.

Breast lump with pain during Menses and it is present since last 10 months means it is more likely a fibroadenoma. But still you should consult your doctor for examination and investigation to rule out any malignancy.

MD - Radiothrapy
Oncologist, Ahmedabad
Hi First quit smoking. Kindly give detailed history, from how long you smoke, no of cigarette per day. There is no need for screening to detect cancer. Lung cancer is most common in smokers. To detect lung cancer do chest x-ray. Take antioxidant diet.

Hi sir/mam I found breast lump in left breast 8 months back but there is no swelling discharge or any symptoms but pain at time of menses that's it I saw in some articles all breast lumps are not cause cancer pizz give me suggestion it cause any severe condition in future what precautions I should take.

Oncologist, Bangalore
Hi, It is true that all breast lumps will not lead to cancer. But it is not advisable to neglect any kind breast lump. A breast lump not causing any pain, swelling, discharge etc may silently turn into a cancer. I suggest you to consult a general surgeon and get it examined once. He/she will be the right person to tell you what it is. Take care.
