Can Cervical Cancer Be Detected On Ultrasound
How long does it take 4 abnormal cells to turn into cervical cancer? 22, had ultrasound 1 yr agopap every 6mnths nothing there just abnormal cells.
An ultraound, also known as a sonogram, is a painless and relatively inexpensive imaging test that utilizes sound waves instead of ionizing radiation. There are no side effects. Ultrasound can give us two-dimensional, and in some applications three-dimensional, images of structures and organs in virtually any part of the body. In addition to diagnostic uses, such as evaluating abnormalities in the abdomen, pelvis, and breast, ultrasounds are commonly used to guide needle and catheter placement in a variety of surgical ...Read more
Yes, but...: Any disease or life event will always display on its own pattern of full spectrum; so will cervical cancer. At its early stage, the affected feels nothing. As the disease advances, it may locally advance to damage and distort local. Nearby tissue, and to spread to far sites. So, if not treated timely, what you concern about will appear on its course of progress. US may suspect such but CT defines..See 1 more doctor answer
Would metastatic cervical cancer in the breast appear the same as breast cancer on mammogram and ultrasound?
Possibly on imaging: Cervical cancer (the tissue at the end of the vaginal canal) rarely metastasizes to the breast. Rather breast cancer may metastasize to many areas of body, such as bone, lung, brain, lymph nodes. That being said, any abnormal growth in the breast, though mostly breast tissue, could look similarly by mammogram or ultrasound. The bottom line is if there is an abnormality, must be biopsied.See 2 more doctor answers
Only if advanced: A pap smear is the best way to screen for cervical cancer. A biopsy of the cervix is the way to diagnose cervical cancer or precancerous cells. Most abnormal cells on the cervix are precancerous, only a few are actual cancer when found. Most cervical cancers are early and small, so aren't seen by an ultrasound. An ultrasound could only see cervical cancer if it was causing a large mass.
Would cervical cancer invading the pelvic sidewall or obstructing the kidney be seen on trans vaginal or pelvic ultrasound?
Yes, but...: Any disease or life event will always display on its own pattern of full spectrum; so will cervical cancer. At its early stage, the affected feels nothing. As the disease advances, it may locally advance to damage and distort local. Nearby tissue, and to spread to far sites.

30 yr old female, thyroid cancer in 2015, ultrasound showed an enlarged uterus. Family history of uterine and cervical cancer (mom and both sisters).
Follow up with MD: You need to follow up with the GN MD to determine the source of the uterine enlargement. With your family history of various cancers it is imperative that you do so soon as some of these cancers are genetically transmitted.
I've recently been diagnosed with cervical cancer and a friend suggested I'd use Plus CBD oil. Is it worth it? Are there any side effects?
Discuss with Yr Onco: Your treating doctor should be informed before you go about doing anything with CBD oil. This is not a proven useful chemical...it is relatively new and is not medically proven to help anybody like yourself who has regular cancer (Cervix cancer) which should be treated with regular standard treatments
Through sex mostly: The human papilloma virus, or hpv, is spread by sexual intercourse and increases the risk of cervical, anal and penile cancers. This is why the hpv vaccine lowers the risk of cervical cancer and is recommended (for complete preventive recommendations, see the my health checklist iphone app). Smoking is the only consistent nonsexual risk factor, according to the us preventive services task force.See 1 more doctor answer
Depends on exposure: Cervical cancer is a malignant lesion of the opening of the mouth of the uterus. It begins as an insitu lesion with no symptoms and progresses to an ulcerating hemorrhagic tumor that can be difficult to treat. It arises from the HPV virus in uncircumsized males growing in the foreskin of the penis. If a woman gets cervical cancer her husband or partner stills has the penile foreskin.
HPV infection...: Nearly all cervical cancers are caused by infection with the dna virus called human papillomavirus (hpv). This virus is most commonly spread by sexual contact, and certain viral strains can incorporate into human dna and cause human cells to proliferate outside of normal cell growth control causing dysplasia (precancer) and then possibly cancer. The pap test is a screening test to detect this.
Couple things: Significant advances in image guided brachytherapy have been made and shown improved outcomes for certain women. Some new data suggesting gemcitabine and Cisplatin may be an improvement over Cisplatin alone with radiation. Also a new trial open asking whether additional chemo after chemo and radiation is beneficial for certain women (outback study).See 1 more doctor answer
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
