Cervical Cancer: What You Need to Know ?

Female reproductive system diseases of uterus cancer and endometrial malignant tumor.

Cervical cancer is a type of cancer that affects the cells of the cervix, which is the lower part of the uterus that connects to the vagina. Cervical cancer is one of the most preventable and treatable cancers, if detected early and managed properly.

What causes cervical cancer?

The main cause of cervical cancer is a persistent infection with certain types of human papillomavirus (HPV), which is a common sexually transmitted infection. HPV can cause changes in the cells of the cervix, which may lead to precancerous lesions or cancer over time. However, not all HPV infections cause cervical cancer, and most people who have HPV do not develop cervical cancer.

How can cervical cancer be prevented?

The best way to prevent cervical cancer is to protect yourself from HPV infection and to get regular screening tests that can detect precancerous or cancerous changes in the cervix. Some of the prevention strategies include:

  • Getting vaccinated against HPV. The HPV vaccine can protect against the most common and high-risk types of HPV that cause cervical cancer and other cancers. The vaccine is recommended for people aged 9 to 45 years, preferably before they become sexually active.
  • Getting screened for cervical cancer. Screening tests can help find precancerous or cancerous cells in the cervix before they cause symptoms or spread. The most common screening tests are the Pap test and the HPV test. The Pap test involves scraping and brushing cells from the cervix and examining them under a microscope. The HPV test involves testing the cells or fluid from the cervix for the presence of HPV DNA. Depending on your age, health history, and test results, you may need to get screened every 3 to 5 years.
  • Practicing safe sex. Using condoms and limiting the number of sexual partners can reduce the risk of getting or spreading HPV and other sexually transmitted infections.
  • Quitting smoking. Smoking can increase the risk of cervical cancer and other cancers by damaging the DNA of the cells and weakening the immune system.

What are the symptoms of cervical cancer?

In its early stages, cervical cancer may not cause any symptoms. As the cancer progresses, some of the possible symptoms include:

  • Abnormal vaginal bleeding, such as bleeding after sex, between periods, or after menopause.
  • Unusual vaginal discharge, which may be watery, bloody, or foul-smelling.
  • Pelvic pain or pain during sex.
  • Difficulty urinating or having bowel movements.

If you have any of these symptoms, you should see your doctor as soon as possible. These symptoms may also be caused by other conditions, such as infections or benign growths, but they need to be evaluated and treated.
