Depends on stage: Early cervical cancer is asymptotic, that is why regular pap tests are important. Symptoms may include irregular bleeding, spotting, foul smelling discharge, frequent urination and pain. See this site for more info. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmedhealth/pmh0001895/.

Vag'l bleeding, pain: Most cases start from papilloma viral infection, which is spread sexually. Symptoms are bleeding between periods, associated with pelvic pain, pain with intercourse or loss of appetite and weight. It can be detected early when curable with the pap test at your primary md or gyenocologist.

Not many if early: Cervical cancer is most commonly detected on routine screening pap smear or pelvic exam. If a patient does not see a doctor routinely and does not get pap smears then cervical cancer may become advanced and start to cause symptoms. In such a case once it has become locally advanced patients can experience pelvic pain, abnormal bleeding, malodorous discharge, and even rectal pain or blood.
