Cervical Cancer Treatment

About Cervical Cancer

Apart from breast cancer, this is one of the most common cancers in women. It occurs when the cells in the lower part of the uterus (womb) that opens into vagina, called the cervix become cancerous. The exact cause of cancer is still unclear, but the initial ‘pre-cancerous’ abnormality of cervical cells is usually caused by a prior infection with the Human Papilloma Virus. Cervical cancer can often be successfully treated if it’s found early. It is usually found at a very early stage through a PAP test.

There may be no symptoms when the tumour is small, but a larger tumour in most cases causes abnormal vaginal bleeding such as:

  • Bleeding between periods
  • Any vaginal bleeding after menopause
  • Bleeding after having sex
  • Vaginal discharge with unpleasant smell

Diagnosis, Management and Treatment
  • A diagnosis is confirmed through a vaginal examination done with colonoscopy
  • Treatment options that could be considered include surgery, chemotherapy, radiotherapy or a combination of treatments
  • Typical treatment plans are based on the type of cervical cancer, its stage, and any special situations
  • The treatment plan will depend on other factors as well, including your overall health and personal preferences
