Cervical Cancer Questions

How effective is taxol and carboplatin, As palliative chemotherapy for a recurrence of cervical cancer after concurrent chemo-radiation before 8 years?

Hello, Treatment options in recurrent cervical cancer is very limited. The management mainly depends on the primary treatment received and the site and extent of recurrence. In your case as the patient had already received chemoradiation, so in case of recurrence the only viable option remains is of carboplatin or cisplatin based chemotherapy. Despite treatment, the prognosis is guarded.

My mother has a cervical cancer and has undergone through chemotherapy and radiation after that the usg result has come with the impression that no. Laceration and malignancy vell has been found but after 1 years has started bleeding again and that smell stingy what we should do now. And why is it so. Please help.

You should take proper check up again like sonography. Chemotherapy may have killed cancer cells that time but it does not cure the tendency to grow it again. There are chances of recurrence. You can consult me at Lybrate for homoeopathic treatment.

My mother is suffering from cervical cancer and now she has stingy smell vaginal discharge so, will clingen forte be helpful for that smelly discharge.

She can use it, but it will not be very useful. While inserting vaginal pessary she should be very careful as not to injure the cervical growth, otherwise, she may have bleeding.

My mother age is around 49, she had a biopsy and it was positive she has a cervical cancer in 2b stage what will be the cost of surgery, should she undergo only surgery or radiation therapy could you please suggest.

You should consult an oncologist and take proper advise. Diseases like cancer cannot be advised like this. My other advise is to take homoeopathic treatment side by side. It is the best way to reduce the complications and get healthy fast.

My mother having cervical carcinoma I met Dr. Oncologist he told whole abdomen hysterectomy surgery suggestion. Cost 1.25laks .im middle class family. Pap smear & biopsy report-LSIL &CIN grade 3 change. How many cost in your hospital.

Patient needs to be evaluated clinically and may need colpo guided biopsy before planning treatment. This helps to decide about extent of surgery. The aim of treatment will be to give patient single modality of treatment .Either surgery alone or radiotherapy. If she is planned for surgery it need to be done by trained gynec oncologist so that chances that she will need further treatment is reduced to minimal. The cost of surgery is around a lakh .My hospital has patient support program also if patient is not affording they can also apply for it.

I lost my mother to Cervical Cancer 2 months ago, someone advised me to go for screening that the monster is hereditary, how true is it? Is it urgent for me to go for screening?

Yes you can get your pap smear done, Cervical cancer is not hereditary. It's most common cause is HPV infection. But cervical cancer screening should be done by all.

What test is need to be done for checking cancer in men and women both. Eg. Like cervical cancer, breast cancer, blood and skin cancer.

Cancer is caused by uncontrolled growth of cells in an area of our body. It can be due to loss of function of tumor suppressor genes or due to increased function of oncogenes. Screening is recommended for a few cancers to help in early detection and cure. Breast Cancer: screening mammography from age 45 years every 2-3 yearly. Cervical cancer: Pap smear (3 yearly) or HPV (5 yearly) from age 26 to 55 Prostate cancer PSA level every 2 years from age 50. Oral cancers: visual inspection in high risk individuals Lung cancer: low dose ct scan in high risk individuals Colon cancer: Fecal occult blood test (colonoscopy for high risk) Stomach cancer: OGD scopy for high risk Some tests which may be done, but not standard recommendations are: Ovary: usg and CA 125 Pancreas: Ca19. 9 and usg Skin and cancer: examination Blood cancer: CBC There are many cancers and that many causes of cancer. If localised, it may form a lump or swelling. Usually painless. If it has spread i.e. Stage 4, then symptoms due to the affected site or organ can occur. E.g.

There are always chances at that age. You can get an imaging done like MRI scan and a biopsy to confirm the same.
