Q: 

A vaccination for the cancer causing virus for cervical cancer is now being given to women. Why not men?

A: Question good a man and woman give vaccination Because the FDA has only approved it to prevent cervical cancer as of yet. Could be something to look into though. Unfortunately men don''t get to endure cervixes, uteruses, and the wonderful ovaries. hpv hasnt as yet been linked to prostate cancer, so it would be no benefit to men , however it has been linked to cervical cancer and as such it is beneficial to vaccinate women. I can see your logic however i guess it just wouldn''t be cost effective to vaccinate men aswell Men don''t have a cervix. The drug has only been approved for cervical cancer. Until testing shows...

Q: 

Is cervical cancer Treatable?

A: cervical cancer is very treatable and typically involves surgery, possibly in combination with a course of radiation. Even if not caught early, the survival rate is good. cervical cancer can be treated early with simple surgical procedures with a high cure rate (>90%). As cervical cancer becomes more advanced, the treatment becomes more extensive surgical procedures and may involve radiation. The higher the stage of cervical cancer, the more likely the cancer is not curable. However, even those with advanced metastasized

Q: 

What happens if cervical cancer is not treated?

A: What happens if cervical cancer is not treated is that can spread beyond the cervix and uterus, into the vagina and pelvis and then possibly into the lymph nodes, and from there, to other organs. However, not all cervical cancers spread. I could not find good statistics on how many do. IMHO (and I`m no doctor) is definitely important to find cervical cancer as early as possible and treat it as soon as possible. This is why I encourage all the women in my life to get regularly screened at their gynecologists for cervical cancer.. I just had my mother go through 5 months of chemo and radiation...

Q: 

hpv and cervical cancer

A: Current medical status: cervical cancer stage 1 Current medical treatment: about to have surgery The sexually acquired ''Human papilloma virus'', or HPV, found in cervical cells is a condition that turns normal cells into precancerous ones. Depending on the strength of the immune system, cancer may develop (pretty quickly, if the body''s immunity does not work properly, but this will depend on a case-by-case basis). The process goes: normal cervix cells HPV = precancerous cells insufficient work of immune system = cancerous cells. It takes more time for the development of a pre
Q: 

How to Effectively Prevent cervical cancer

A: cervical cancer affects the cervix, the lower portion of the uterus. According to Women''s Health website, the human papillomavirus (HPV) is the primary culprit for causing cervical cancer. Prior to the invention of the Pap smear, cervical cancer was the most deadly cancer for women; however, with early detection through Pap smears, treatments are highly effective. The most effective way to safeguard your health, however, is through cervical cancer prevention....


Q: 

What is type 1 cervical cancer?

A: When you say type 1 cervical cancer, I think you mean stage one. Staging is how doctors rate cancers in reference to how they have spread. In stage one cervical cancer, the cancer is only in the cervix and is very treatable. According to what I have read online, stage one cancer has a 91% survival rate, which means that almost all women who are diagnosed with stage one cervical cancer will still be alive five years after their treatment.. ...


Q: 

What is type 2B cervical cancer?

A: cervical cancer is diagnosed in stages, where the first stage notes cancerous growth into the deep tissues of the cervix without spreading outside the cervical area. Stage 2 is broken into two parts, Stage 2A and Stage 2B. Stage 2A is when the cancer spreads outside of the cervix and into the top of the vagina. In Stage 2B, the cancer cells grow into the tissues surrounding the cervix itself, known as the parametria, but has not moved onto the lymph nodes or distal tissues. Stage 2B patients are usually treated with a combination of radiation and chemotherapies. Through these treatments, the survival rate of 2B...


Q: 

Is cervical cancer treatable?

A: Yes! Yes! Yes! cervical cancer is very treatable, in fact if it is caught early enough it is even curable. The death rate from cervical cancer has really plummeted since the invention and institution of the pap smear, which can identify cancerous or precancerous cells so that they can be removed before developing further. Which is why I tell everyone to get regular pap smears. But, even beyond early cervical cancer, there is treatment for later stages, and it is improving all the time.. ...
