Cervical Cancer After Leep Procedure
I had a LEEP procedure for cervical cancer. My cervix is mostly scar tissue with a small opening. Could this possibly lead to endometriosis?
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
Probably not: Cervical cancer is rare at your age (23), and LEEP was intended to remove dysplastic pre-cancer tissue, so whatever low risk there was probably is now gone. However, your doctor probably advised follow-up exams and testing to assure there is no recurrence. Follow that advice, or contact the doctor's office if uncertain about it. Also ask about vaccination against HPV to further reduce future risk. ...Read more
Not Necessarily: Your leep was probably done for cervical dysplasia (high grade sil). Hpv predisposes you to have recurrent disease and simply put, you benefit from continued surveillance or yearly pap smears. If this is done, it is very unlikely that you will get cervical cancer. Take care. ...Read more
Can I develop cervical cancer in a year? I had a leep a year ago for severe dysplasia I have my appointment next week... Really scared im 23.
Severe Dysplasia: Linda the reason they took the tissue out is it had the chance of turning into cancer, I'm almost positive that they wanted you to come back in 6 months to get repeat testing, probably a colposcopy. This is because they wanted to make sure everything was ok. So it has been a year now, there is no sense being so scared. You need to get the exam and testing. Chances are it will not be cancer! ...Read more
My doctor told me that I have CIN 4 cervical cancer. She has already done a LEEP and I believe that she said that she has got it all. However, she wants me to get a hysterectomy done. What should I do?
CIN IV?: Cin means cervical intraepithelial neoplasia, a pre cancerous condition, usually staged I to iii by IV means in situ carcinoma but not invasive yet, usually will need the just the procedure you had, you have to speak to your doctor will explain, some facts are missing, if it is not invasive ca at 26 yr old possible not to loose uterus, if needed take a second opinion good luck. ...Read more
My mother had cervical cancer at the age of 43, a surgeon performed salpingo- oophorectomy, are there long term side effects after such procedure?
??????: Your? Makes no sense, if your mother had cervical cancer most likely she had either a cervical cone if it had not spread or a hysterectomy, if she had a hysterectomy then the surgeon may have also removed tubes and ovaries, but removing tubes and ovaries has nothing to do with cancer of the cervix, but is often done at the time of hysterectomy. ...Read more
I've had cervical cancer twice I don't know if the reason why I have my p e r I od twice a month every couple of months could that be a reason?
Assuming you mean: Diagnosed while pregnant, non-invasive might wait treatment until post partum, as might very early ia, but later stages pit woman's life versus foetal life dilemma, and balance of waiting for viability. A c-section may be needed. The cancer itself does not pass to/infect the neonate. Ca in situ and cone or cryo might lead to miscarriage and can affect fertility, as would rad hys & xrt. ...Read more
Early detection is curable and that's why pap smears are so important. The ability to spread depends on a number of features-
is it poorly differentiated?
What stage was it iwhen it was found?
Has it gone to lymph nodes already?
Sorry- wish I could be more helpful. ...Read more
You may not experience any cervical cancer symptoms — early cervical cancer generally produces no signs or symptoms. As the cancer progresses, the following signs and symptoms of more advanced cervical cancer may appear:
vaginal bleeding after intercourse, between periods or after menopause,
watery, bloody vaginal discharge that may be heavy and have a foul odor,
pelvic pain or pain during sex. ...Read more
It is a growth on th: It is a tumor or growth on the cervix. It looks like a cauliflower like growth on top of the cervix. It bleeds on touch and a biopsy shows cancer cells. It is not difficult to diagnose for any good doctor especially a gynecologist which is where you should go to get examined for this problem. ...Read more
Almost zero: I'm generally hesitant to use the words "always" or "never" in medicine as nature usually finds exceptions to every rule. But I would say the chance is close to zero as cervical cancer is generally related to specific strains of HPV spread sexually. I do know of one case reported in the literature. However, I'd say you have a better chance of winning the powerball or being struck by lightning. ...Read more
Uterus: It is cancer that develops in the uterine cervix, the lower tip of the uterus that sticks out into the vagina (see the illustration). Usually associated with human papilloma virus infection, so it can be prevented with the HPV vaccine or at least detected early with PAP smears. Not to be confused with endometrial cancer, which happens within the uterus itself. ...Read more
Yes.: Cervical cancer is most commonly caused by infection with human papilloma virus (hpv). Hpv can be transmitted sexually via skin to genital contact without necessarily engaging in intercourse. Therefore, women who have never had sex can still acquire hpv which would put them at risk for developing cervical cancer. ...Read more
Range of none tosome: Early stage cervical cancer tends not to result in symptoms (this is why regular pelvic exams and pap smears are so important) but symptoms can develop as the cancer progresses. These can include vaginal bleeding after intercourse or between periods or after menopause, watery/bloody vaginal discharge, pelvic pain or pain during intercourse. ...Read more
Do you mean jab: As in "jab" of pain? Cervical cancer can cause pain in its own if it invades into or compresses nearby structures. Sometimes the treatment (radiation, chemo, surgery) causes its own pain from inflammation of the tissue. Most of the time, pain is managed with nsaids like advil (ibuprofen) and narcotics like oxycodone or morphine. Sometimes a numbing medicine can be placed (called a "block") by your gyn onc. ...Read more
Rare: Incidence is very low age <25.Get a more detailed answer ›
Depends on spread.: Staging is done by pelvic exam under anasthesia, with cystoscopy, and proctoscopy. If the cancer is contained (cancer in situ) it is cured by cone biopsy. Stage I is treated by radical hysterectomy or radiation therapy. More advanced disease gets combinations of surgery, chemotherapy, and radiation. It would be wise to start by seeing your doctor to get directed properly. ...Read more
Cervical cancer is caused mostly by a viral infection, HPV, that is sexually transmitted. A vaccine is available for women up to 26 years of age. Regular PAP smear examinations can prevent this cancer. See this site for more info.

Sometimes when...: ...it's too late. If a patient is lucky, she may notice bleeding early enough but pain and other symptoms often mean incurable disease. It is vital for women to: 1. Get HPV vaccine when children 2. Get their screening Paps and HPV test as recommended and 3. (and sorry if I sound judgmental, but I don't care) Be responsible in the sexual aspect of their lives. Acts carry consequences. ...Read more
