Cervical Cancer Symptoms

Symptoms Of Cervical Cancer It is important to recognize the symptoms of cervical cancer, because early detection is the best guarantee of a full recovery. This becomes challenging since early cervical cancers usually do not have symptoms. In its later stages, however, symptoms of cervical cancer include bleeding between menstrual periods, after intercourse, or during a pelvic exam. Other symptoms for cervical cancer are pelvic pain and pain during intercourse. In 2012, according to the National Cancer Institute, more than 12,000 women in the United States will be diagnosed with invasive cervical cancer. Most will be younger than 55. While that is a sobering statistic, there is some good news. According to the staff at the Mayo Clinic, the mortality rate from cervical cancer is declining, thanks in part to screening. If you, or someone you know has symptoms of cervical cancer, a trained specialist can follow several courses of action to determine if you have cervical cancer. First, there are lab tests such as the popular PAP test, which takes a sample tissue and checks it for cervical cancer cells. Second, you can go for a cervical exam wherein the doctor uses a special tool to look at the cervix. Third, a doctor can remove a tissue sample to look for cancer cells. Most women have cervical tissue removed in the doctor’s office, and usually only local anesthesia is needed.
