Would uterine, cervical or ovarian cancer be noticed during a c section? C section 14 weeks ago. Bled after sex few times so am worried about cancer.

No: Cervical cancer/ovarian cancer would probably not be noted at the time of a c/section. However, most doctors do screen for cervical cancer (a pap-smear) near the beginning of pregnancy care.

Best wishes! ...Read more
