Cervical Cancer

What You Need to know:  The cervix is a part of the female reproductive system and is located in the lowest part of the uterus (womb).  Functionally, the cervical canal is the medium through which (male) sperm travels to meet the (female) egg; this is also known as the process of fertilization.  Moreover, cervical cancer is a form of cancer that is the result of an excessive amount of cell build-up that can potentially spread to the rest of the body.  Risk factors that show a correlation of experiencing cervical cancer in a lifetime are:

  • Having sex at an early age
  • Having multiple sexual partners
  • Involvement in high risk sexual activities
  • Not getting the HPV vaccines
  • Weakened immune system

Cervical cancer has a wide range of symptoms that are often not experienced in the early stages of being detected.  These symptoms include:

  • Weight loss
  • Back pain
  • Bones fractures
  • Leg pain
  • Loss of appetite
  • Pelvic pain
  • Single swollen leg
  • Leaking of urine and feces from the vagina

There are many ways to decrease chances of acquiring cervical cancer such as:

  • Abstinence
  • Use of condoms
  • Cervical cancer screenings (regular Pap smears, acetic acid)
  • HPV vaccine

Cervical cancer is both preventable and manageable when properly informed.  The outcome of what becomes of having cervical cancer is contingent upon how early in which it is detected.

If you have not, please make contact with your obstetrician/gynecologist and schedule your appointment for 2015.  If you do not currently have a obstetrician/gynecologist you may use cancer.net as a reference for local assistance.
