Cervical cancer is the cancer that forms within the cells of the cervix of the vagina. It begins as a pre-cancerous condition called dysplasia. It is a slow growing tumor and can be treated if caught early. It is almost always caused by a HPV infection. Symptoms of cervical cancer are continuous vaginal discharge (can be pale, watery, pink, brown, bloody and smelly), abnormal, longer and heavy bleeding (even after menopause) pelvic pain, fatigue, weight loss, single swollen leg.
It can be diagnosed by Pap tests to detect early signs of cervical cancer as well as other cancers of the female reproductive system, including ovarian cancer. Treatments for this cancer can be LEEP (Loop Electrosurgical Excision Procedure), Cryotherapy, Laser therapy, Hysterectomy, Radical hysterectomy, Pelvic exenteration, Radiation and Chemotherapy depending on the type, area, size, and age of the cancer.
