Q: 

What are warning signs of cervical cancer?

A: Unfortunately, the warning signs of cervical cancer rarely show up until the cancer has spread beyond the cervix, but they include: abnormal menstrual bleeding, bleeding between periods, heavy discharge, pelvic and abdominal pain, and painful urination. Now, because these warning signs come late, it is important all of us get screened for cervical cancer regularly. That way, it can be caught before it has a chance to progress to the point of sending out warning signs. And, of course, even though I am no doctor, I recommend that anyone having these symptoms see a doctor. They could be a sign of cervical cancer or...

Q: 

Spine and hip pain after cervical cancer

Q: 

When is a hysterectomy necessary for cervical cancer?

A: While it is a frequently recommended treatment, and possibly more thorough, it is not the only treatment. If the patient is in stage I cervical cancer and trying to remain fertile, there are at least two other options. One is a loop electrical excision procedure, known by the acronym LEEP, which can be performed under a local anesthetic, sometime with a general anesthetic and with a high sucess rate. Another , if the LEEP is not effective, is the trachelectomy. This procedure, however, cannot be performed until after surgical microscopic examination. There are two types: the radical and the simple trachelectomy. The radical, as it sounds, involves taking more tissue during the procedures...

Q: 

Symtoms of cervical cancer

A: Turkey is one of the most annoying birds to cook. I remember one Christmas when we bought a frozen turkey and it took all of 20 hours to thaw. Turkey takes such a long time to thaw and you will feel that it''s not worth the effort. Depending on how you cook the turkey it can take anywhere between one and two hours. I like to fry the turkey with the help of a huge pot. This brings out the oil and richness of the turkey meat. A roast turkey should take about two hours to cook depending on the heat. And the treatment includes surgery, chemotherapy and radiation therapy. and the possible risk factors are giving birth to many children''s having many sexual partners, cigarettes smoking, Oral contraceptive pills and low immune system. Hi Priya, Pain is not a necessary...


Q: 

what is the cause of cervical cancer?

A: Human papillomavirus (HPV), any of a family of more than 60 viruses that cause various growths, including plantar warts and genital warts, a sexually transmitted disease. Detectable warts can be or removed, usually by chemicals, freezing, or laser, but often recur. Intralesional alpha interferon has been effective in the treatment of genital warts. Genital warts, sometimes called condylomata acuminata, are soft and often occur in clusters. They can occur internally or externally, but even in the absence of warts the virus may be present and transmittable. Problems can result from untreated warts, which can grow quite large, or, in rare cases, from infection of an infant during delivery. In addition, certain strains of HPV are associated with

Q: 

cervical cancer was spotted

A: Hi, Welcome to ehealthforum. The decision of post surgery chemo or radiotherapy depends on the ‘frozen section’ results of the cancer affected parts. This will show the type of malignancy that you have (based on the cell type). The hospital stay after surgery will depend on your response and recovery. It can vary from 3-10 days. Do not worry, you will be safe and recover well. Recovery rates for early cervical cancer surgery and treatment are about 90% and increased to about 95-98% with subsequent chemo or radiotherapy. If you are still apprehensive about the surgery and your post surgery stay in hospital, discuss with your treating gynecologist about the risks and benefits of it before you...
