What Are the Causes of cervical cancer?

A: The causes of cervical cancer are linked to genetic mutations that turn healthy cells in the cervix into abnormal cells that grow at an accelerated rate. While the mutations are really the sole causes of cervical cancers, the factors that create the mutation are many and varied. Infection with certain viruses, smoking, and extensive use of birth control pills have all been linked to increased chances of cervical cancer.. Some research suggests that the presence of cervical cancer is overwhelmingly linked to a common virus known as the human papilloma virus or HPV. A sexually transmitted...


What Is Stage 1 cervical cancer?

A: Medical professionals sometimes assign stages to cancers to better define them. These stages refer to the extent of growth and spread of the cancer. Definitions can vary throughout the world for each stage. Stage 1 cervical cancer, however, is generally the earliest stage of the disease, with stage 4 the latest. Stage 1 also contains smaller sub-stages.. When medical tests show that a woman has cervical cancer, a doctor uses the results of the tests, and perhaps order more analysis, to assess the extent of the cancer and assign it a stage. As the disease does not progress in easily definable stages, doctors have come...


My ex wife has HPV(cervical cancer)we were married for 4 yrs. am i at risk of cancer? can women pass it to men

A: MEn dont have a cervix so no Yes you can get HPV and yes it can and does cause cancer in men. There are two drug companies that have a vaccine, but, i don''t know if it helps after you are infected. In India, HPV is treated topically with Neem and Turmeric, Wormwood and Black Walnut, and arbor vitae. Once the "warts" are gone, if you keep up the treatments (you take them internal also) eventually you will "shed" the virus. I don''t know exactly how it works, but basically you will not be a carrier anymore. I found the Wormwood, Black Walnut and arbor vitae to work much faster, and have had no recurrances for 2 years now. hello, well hpv can cause cervical cancer and men...


Can cervical cancer prevent pregnancy?

A: If a cervical cancer was quite advanced, then possibly it could. But, generally no - cervical cancer would not prevent pregnancy. With cervical cancer, you have to be very sure that you understand the information that is given to you about the stage of the disease. Many women (and their partners) think they have cervical cancer when they only have an abnormal smear. These women do not have cancer. An abnormal smear means there are some abnormal cells there. But they are not cancer cells. treatment nearly always gets rid...

What happens if cervical cancer goes untreated?

A: I''m an RN. Having an annual Pap smear and HPV test is the best way to find cervical cancer in the early stages. (It can also monitor pre - cancerous cells). The 5 year survival rate for cervical cancer treated in the early, localized stage is 90%. If left untreated, the cancer will spread and the 5 year survival rate drops to 50% or below depending on far the cancer has spread. Please get treatment now!! ---quote---- If cervical cancer is not treated, it may spread from the cervix to the vagina, then into deeper...


Why does the Gardasil commercial clame it is a cervical cancer vaccine?

A: I can see where the confusion lies but if I recall the commercials and the ads correctly, I think that the claim is against the most common types of HPV which have been shown to cause most of the cervical cancers. It''s a ''preventative'' vaccine. And I believe that HPV is the only thing that may lead to cervical cancer (I heard this somewhere, I could be wrong). HPV is one of the leading precursors to cervical cancer so in a round about away, it does prevent cervical cancer by protecting you from some of the most common and dangerous genital HPV types. However, just because you have HPV...
