Cervical Cancer

Cervical cancer is usually caused by Human Papillomavirus (HPV). The cancer cells grow in the zone where the endocervix and the ectocervix meet. Cervical cancerous cells are slow-growing and develop over many years. Initially, they are called dysplasia and can generally be removed with a simple clinical procedure.

Cervical Cancer

It has been found that two-thirds of women who are sexually active are vulnerable to cervical cancer. It develops over the years as it is a gradual process. But it is seen that most women get screened for the disease only after a PAP test shows some irregularities. This should ideally be not the case. Some preventive measures that doctors advise are to suggest the partner use condoms, get vaccinated and also have regular PAP smears to diagnose it in early stages.

  • Sexually active at a very young age
  • Multiple sex partners
  • Multiple pregnancies
  • AIDS
  • Use of oral contraceptives
  • Smoking
  • PAP smear
  • Cytology
  • Cone biopsy
  • Colposcopy
  • Surgery: Doctor may recommend a hysterectomy that involves the removal of the uterus. During the procedure, the surgeon may also extract some tissues next to the cervix and the uterus. They also may remove some lymph nodes from the pelvis to check if the cancer cells have spread to those areas.
  • Chemotherapy: This process uses anti-cancer drugs to eliminate cancer cells.
  • Radiation Therapy: Can be given in combination with one or both of the above procedures.
