Cancer of Cervix

  1. 1. Cancer of Cervix Deepam Meditours (Medical Tourism Company)
  2. 2. Cancer of Cervix • It is the 3rd most common cancer in women worldwide. • Cervical cancer starts in the cells lining the cervix. • It is due to the abnormal growth of cells that have the ability to invade or spread to other parts of the body. • Caused by HPV (Human Papillomavirus) infection. • HPV infection may cause cervical dysplasia, or abnormal growth of cervical cells. • There may be no symptoms in the early stage.
  3. 3. Types of Cervical Cancer • Squamous cell cervical cancer is the most common. This develops from a skin-like cell (a squamous cell) that covers the cervix which becomes cancerous. • Adenocarcinoma cervical cancer is less common. This develops from a glandular cell (a cell that makes mucus) within the cervical canal which becomes cancerous. To Know more about Cervical Cancer Visit us : www.deepammeditours.com
  4. 4. Symptoms • Bleeding between normal periods (intermenstrual bleeding). • Bleeding after having sex (postcoital bleeding). • Any vaginal bleeding in women past the menopause. • Blood in vaginal discharge. • Increased urinary frequency • Pain during urination
  5. 5. Diagnosis • PAP Smear Test • HPV DNA Test • Colposcopy • Cone biopsy • Pelvic ultrasound • MRI & CT scan
  6. 6. Invasive Cervical Cancer Stages • Stage I: Cancer cells are found only in the cervix. • Stage II: The tumor has grown through the cervix and invaded the upper part of the vagina. • Stage III: The tumor has invaded the pelvic wall or the lower part of the vagina. • Stage IV: The tumor has invaded the bladder or rectum. Or, the cancer has spread to other parts of the body, such as the lungs.
  7. 7. Therapies Option for Cervical Cancer • Chemotherapy : It is a treatment to destroy cancer cells with medicines. – It’s used with radiotherapy, or to help to shrink a tumor before radiotherapy or surgery. – It can also control symptoms if cancer comes back after an initial treatment.
  8. 8. • Radiation Therapy : It is a treatment which uses high-energy beams of radiation which are focused on cancerous tissue. – This kills cancer cells, or stops cancer cells from multiplying. – Radiotherapy alone can be curative for early-stage cervical cancer and may be an alternative to surgery.
