What Is Cervical Cancer?

Cervix is a part of the human reproductive system that connects the uterus and vagina. The cervical cancer occurs due to the different strains of human papillomavirus. It is a sexually transmitted infection. Generally, the immune cells fight against the infection but in some cases, the infectious cells remain in the body and contribute to the process of cancer formation.

What Causes Cervical Cancer?

  • The primary cause of cervical cancer is thought to be changes in the healthy cells of the cervix. The DNA inside the cell causes the cell to multiply and accumulate inside the body. The abnormal mass of cells leads to formation of tumours in the body that gets out of control.
  • If an individual has more sexual partners than usual, the chances of acquiring human papillomavirus infection are enhanced. Further, getting indulged into sexual activities at an early age is also a risk factor.
  • Sexually transmitted infections and a weak immune system increase the chances of HPV. Intake of birth control pills for more than 5 years is another risk factor for cervical cancer.
  • Smoking habits may lead to risk of squamous cell cervical cancer and consumption of a drug named diethylstilbestrol (DES) during pregnancy can lead to increased risk of clear cell carcinoma.

Types of Cervical Cancer

Depending on the types of cervical cancer that an individual has, the type and speed of the treatment is determined.

  • Squamous Cell Carcinoma

    As the name suggests, the cancer develops in thin and flat squamous cells that line the outer part of the cervix.

  • Adenocarcinoma

    The column-shaped glandular cells that are present in the lining of the cervical canal lead to development of adenocarcinoma.

Signs and Symptoms of Cervical Cancer?

  • Pain during sexual intercourse
  • Pelvic pain
  • Vaginal bleeding post intercourse, post menopause, and between periods
  • Watery or bloody discharge. It may have foul smell and heavy flow
  • Once the disease starts spreading, the symptoms observed can be swollen legs, bone pain, loss of appetite, trouble peeing, fatigue, and unintended weight loss.

What Are The Complications of Cervical Cancer?

Cervical cancer complications might be anything from relatively minor—like vaginal bleeding or frequent urination—to potentially fatal—like severe haemorrhage or kidney failure.
