level 2 cervical cancer

A: Dear Terrie,   There is no such thing as a cure for any type of cancer....  It is the hope of the patient and the doctor that with proper treatment like surgery, chemotherapy, radiation therapy etc, that the cancer will be put in remission and never return, but this is still not called a cure because there is always the chance it will recurr.... cervical cancer as well as breast cancer, lung cancer etc can all be hereditary and since you NOW have a family history of cervical cancer, you will have to be diligent in having annual check-ups, blood work...

What Is the Connection Between Breast and cervical cancer?

A: There are a number of connections between breast and cervical cancer. Most patients affected with breast cancer are women, and all cervical cancer patients are female. Women are routinely screened for both of these types of cancer in the hopes that an early diagnosis will allow for more effective treatment. Some risk factors, such as prolonged oral contraceptive use and smoking, are considered to increase the likelihood of developing these cancers. A rare disease called Peutz-Jeghers syndrome can cause both types of cancer in some affected women.. The clearest...


cervical cancer in virgins

A: It is very unlikely that you would get cervical cancer if you are a virgin. But we do not know for sure if this completely protects you. There are risk factors for developing changes in the cervix that can lead to cancer, or for cervical cancer itself. Being sexually active from a young age is a well known risk factor. A study done in 1950 found that woman who married before the age of 20 had twice the risk of developing cervical cancer than those who married later. Another study done in 1952 of 13,000 nuns found no cases of cervical cancer. These studies and other...

What is the STD that causes cervical cancer?

A: Several...all of them can, I believe. HPV (which is NOT an STD, but can be caused by some STDs) might be the one you''re thinking of. It''s advertised to get the guardasil shot to prevent it. Of course, as I said, most STDs can cause this virus and lead to cervical cancer. HPV - Human Papilloma Virus theres a vaccine for it. hpv otherwise known as human papilloma virus It''s called HPV (Human Papilloma Virus) Its not actually an STD even though it IS spread through sex. I have it & I have had it for over 10 years now! It is SO common & I think most females in the U.S are carrying it, But if you have it, the chances of you getting cervical cancer are SLIM & less than 1% of it...


Why is cervical cancer being treated like an STD? People treat me like I had the flu. Why?

A: because it is related to having many sexual partners. and many people know this now. multiple partners causes the cancerous tendencies in young women. because it''s strongly related to infection with human papilloma virus which is an STD I hope you feel better soon. I point blank asked my OB-GYN is the only way to get cervical cancer is if you get HPV first and she said yes. But only if the HPV goes untreated. Theyre ignorant, and belive all the media hype, that''s why. Don''t worry what people say, just take care of youreslf and get better soon. It is unfortunate that attitudes towards those who have contracted a disease that is attributable to an avoidable behavior or is routinely screened for tend to be less...


What Is cervical cancer Stage 3?

A: A diagnosis of cervical cancer stage 3 indicates the cancer has begun to spread but is still in structures that are close to the cervix. For example, when a woman has this stage of cervical cancer, the cancer may have spread to either the lower portion of the vagina or the wall of the pelvis. It has not yet moved on to affect other, more-distant parts of the body, however. Often, cervical cancer stage 3 is separated into two sub-stages: in one, the lower section of the vagina is affected but not the pelvic walls, while in the other, the cancer has invaded the pelvic...

treatment for cervical cancer ?

A: The treatment that you describe has become the standard treatment for most cases of cervical cancer. Unfortunately, most patients who undergo this type of treatment will become infertile (although you may be able to ''bank'' your eggs prior to undergoing treatment). As for the symptoms from these treatments, these are best discussed with your oncologist. I wish you well with your treatments, and a full and speedy recovery. Sincerely/ Robert A. Wascher, MD, FACS http://doctorwascher.com A cancer Prevention Guide for the Human RaceA landmark, evidence-based guide to a...


What Is the Connection Between cervical cancer and Warts?

A: While there is a strong connection to some types of human papillomavirus (HPV) and the future development of cervical cancer, the HPV that causes genital warts to form is not one of those types. cervical cancer and warts have no relation to each other. Genital warts are only one of the estimated 40 strains of HPV. In 90 percent of women who contract various strains of HPV, including genital warts, the HPV disappears within two years. For the remaining 10 percent who continue to have it, there is an increased risk of cervical cancer; however, the increased risk is never from genital warts.. Genital warts can present as one wart or a cluster of...
