  2. 2. One type of cancer that is not as common as other typesof cancers is cervical cancer. However cervical cancer isjust as dangerous. Because this type of cancer ispotentially life threatening, it is worth learning moreabout the condition, its symptoms, diagnosis andtreatment.Like other types of cancers, cervical cancer is a diseasethat occurs when an individual has a rapid growth oftumor cells in the cervix, which is the opening of theuterus into the vagina. One thing about cervical cancer isthat the cause is actually known, unlike many other typesof cancer. It is caused by a kind of virus called humanpapillomavirus, HPV for short. One important note is thatit has been shown that not all of HPV cause the growth oftumor cells. Research shows that there are at least 100different variations of this virus. Research also indicatesthat HPV 16 and 18 are responsible for 70% of the casesof cervical cancer.
  3. 3. One of the ways that individuals can get this lifethreatening disease is by sexual intercourse. You may noteven know you have it until the cancer cells get out ofcontrol and start creating symptoms that you canrecognize. HPV usually does not have any symptoms atall. The presence of abnormal cells in the cervix will notcause symptoms either. There are also usually no cervicalcancer symptoms at the early stages of the condition.Once the cancer has progressed past the early stages,one symptom is that a woman can experience bleeding inbetween periods that is not typical for her. A woman alsomay have changes in her menstrual cycle as well.Another symptom is traces of blood in normal vaginaldischarge may be found. Another symptom is bleedingafter intercourse along with pain during intercourse canall be signs of cervical cancer. Often, bleeding occursduring or after intercourse. Pain during intercourse isalso a common symptom. A woman may also experiencestrong pelvic pain, as the tumor grows.
  4. 4. To identify if cervical cancer is present, a Pap smear testis normally used to identify the presence of abnormalcervix cells. If this test shows any indication of cancercells, further tests will likely be used to try to identify ifcancer is actually present. This will normally be a biopsywhere some of the cells from the cervix are taken for labtesting.If cancer is found, one of the common treatments is thesurgical removal of the tumor. During the procedurecalled hysterectomy, the pelvic lymph nodes areremoved. In some cases, the fallopian tubes and one orboth of the ovaries can be removed. After surgery,normally chemotherapy and or radiation are used to killany additional cancer cells in this area.Like any cancers, it is important to get an early diagnose,because cancer is easier to treat in its early stages. Thatis why it is important for you to have regular pap tests.Learn Ways To Heal Cancer for Free
