Is it possible to find cervical cancer through a blood test?

Is it possible to find cervical cancer through a blood test?

Mostly no: There are no reliable blood markers for cervical cancer. The tumor marker ca125 is often an indicator of ovarian cancer, but it is not very sensitive and not very specific. It is used as a screening test in some circumstances, and to follow the effects of therapy when it has been documented to be high at the start. There are no blood markers that are good for endometrial cancer, either. ...Read more

Cancer is a group of diseases that is characterized by uncontrolled cell growth leading to invasion of surrounding tissues that spread to other parts of the body. Cancer can begin anywhere in the body and is usually related to one or more genetic mutations that allow normal cells to become malignant by interfering with internal cellular control mechanisms, such as programmed cell death or by preventing ...Read more

Can you determine whether I have cervical cancer or other reproductive organ cancer with a simple blood test?

Not really: There are some tumor markers for female reproductive organ cancers but none of them are adequate to serve as the sole means of screening women. A regular pelvic examination that includes a pap smear is a critical component of catching cervical cancer early. ...Read more

Ask your provider: Over the counter pregnancy tests are pretty darned accurate so you're probably not pregnant but if you're four weeks late you should talk with your provider because there are other reasons your menses could be delayed. ...Read more

I got 67% lymphocytes in blood test. 25% neutrophiles. I got cervical lymph nodes 2~3. What does that mean?? Is it cancer I am really worried.

I got 67% lymphocytes in blood test. 25% neutrophiles. I got cervical lymph nodes 2~3. What does that mean?? Is it cancer I am really worried.

Virus infection: Absolute counts for lymphs and neuts are all that matters, rather than percentages. Almost everybody has one or more lymph nodes palpable in the neck. This is very suggestive of a minor viral illness or perhaps infectious mono. If this is Hodgkin's, it will be obvious soon enough to treat it, and this is very unlikely. Glad you are health conscious. ...Read more

What stage would a patient with cervical cancer be in for their blood work to come back abnormal?

Cervical cancer...: ...is not diagnosed with blood tests. Pelvic exams, biopsies, and scans determine the diagnosis and extent (stage) of the disease. Anyone who is seriously ill (including from cervical cancer) may have abnormal blood tests, but this is non-specific and would not point to the exact cause. ...Read more

Elevated calcium in blood? Im worried because i had a recent abnormal pap (normal one in 2012) can cervical cancer progress that quickly?

Abnormal Paps: Yes. I am worried as well. What happened after your abnormal pap? Weren't you offered a colposcopy and treatment? Did you get your gardisil vaccination? There should be absolutely no progress to cancer if you are getting the right gyn care. ...Read more

I am 44 i had a radical hysterectomy nov 09 for cervical cancer i recently noticed a blood tinged when i used the bathroom after having sex with my husband  should I worry

Probably not: I would recommend you be evaluated by your physician. The vaginal cuff can be an area of recurrence. This is dependent on the extent of your prior surgery, how much cancer was there, pathology of the cancer, and other factors. Please go get evaluated. ...Read more

Can i get cervical cancer this is my first time having sex. I had sex 2 hours ago and i went to the bathroom to pee and when i went to wipe myself i saw little blood. It only last an hour. I had protected sex. Can i still get it even though i had protecte

This is nl but yes: All of your symptoms after first sexual intercourse are normal regardless of whether or not you used protection. Also with or without protection there are std, s condoms don't protect against... Active herpes, pipilloma( genital warts) etc... And condoms are not 100% effective. Aside from all of this if u are sexually active u can get cervical cancer and should discuss with your doctor. ...Read more

I have all the symptoms of cervical cancer.  Watery discharge at times, leg pain, fatigue, random gush of blood every other day recently, very heavy p?

You are correct,: these are concerning symptoms. But they very well may not mean cervical cancer. Especially if you have had a normal Pap or HPV test within the past year or two. The only way to know is to go in to your doctor for an examination and possible tests. Please don't assume you have this serious diagnosis until you have been evaluated. All the best. ...Read more

I have been losing dark brown blood for weeks 14 weeks pregnant they told me white blood cells on cervix I am being told it could be cervical cancer ?

I have been losing dark brown blood for weeks 14 weeks pregnant they told me white blood cells on cervix I am being told it could be cervical cancer ?

Unlikely it's cancer: There can be many reasons for bleeding during pregnancy. Cervical cancer is the least likely reason in a 21 year old. Dark blood is less worrisome than bright red blood. WBC's are suggestive of a vaginal infection. I recommend you be examined by you doctor to determine of you have an infection or possibly a clot or small placental separation. ...Read more
