You: You need to discuss the results of your pap smear with your doctor again so you better understand what was found. Sometimes a test is done with the pap smear to determine if the cerix is infected with a strain of hpv that would put you at a higher risk for cancer and sometimes a special examination of the cervix called a colposcopy is needed to double check the area. Thankfully, many, many women who have abnormal cells will not develop cancer.

Cancer (Definition)

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

PAP test 1 year ok. Some back & side pain, stomach pain and hip pain. Dr examined cervix no redness or inflammation. Could it be cervical cancer?

PAP test 1 year ok. Some back & side pain, stomach pain and hip pain. Dr examined cervix no redness or inflammation. Could it be cervical cancer?

Would seem unlikely: Failure rates of PAP smear are under 10%. This is why it is now a rare cancer. Would have to be cancer everywhere for pain to be everywhere and would be pretty obvious on any imaging study. Cannot say in your particular case, not being there, but widespread pain is gnerally a reason for evaulations.

Will an X-ray of the hip/pelvic area show cervical cancer?

Nope: Plain x rays of the pelvis will not show cervical cancer unless it got so advanced as to involve the pelvic bone. You don't want to let it get to that point.

Pain in hips since radiation and chemotherapy for cervical cancer; does it go away?

Neuropathy: It can be related to neuropathy after chemotherapy and/or radiation. Often it does go away after several months. However, I would recommend to see pain specialist and start medical treatment.

I have pain near on my hips and back of it is that possible I have cervical cancer or kidney failure?

Back pain: The only way to answer your question is to go to your doctor, describe in detail the pain you are having - what brings it on, what makes it better, exact location, does it start one place and go another, how much does it bother you, is it sharp/dull/throbbing. Ask to be thoroughly examined head to toe. Then, let your doctor decide what the problem might be and go from there.

Hi there, I am post-op hysterectomy (4 months) due to cervical cancer and now experiencing painful hips when I walk?

Hi there, I am post-op hysterectomy (4 months) due to cervical cancer and now experiencing painful hips when I walk?

Go see your doctor: I'm sorry to hear about your cervical cancer but I'm glad to hear that you had it cared for. With that said, it's still a good idea to see your family doc or oncologist (both probably) regarding your pains. It would be a good idea to get xrays of your hips to make sure nothing else is going on. If there's any swelling in your legs, get a venous duplex study to rule out blood clot.

Depends: Many things can be the reason - everything from things related to treatment to unrelated vitamin d deficiency to arthritis. Please have a thorough exam with your doctor. Additionally, cervical cancer warrants continued surveillance as well.

How can I get cervical cancer?

How can I get cervical cancer?

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.

Is it unusual to get cervical cancer?

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.

How could a woman get cervical cancer?

How could a woman get cervical cancer?

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.

Multiple factors: Human papilloma virus (hpv) is a risk factor. Since hpv is transmitted sexually, it is important to use condoms in order to reduce transmission. Please talk with your doctor about the possibility of having the hpv vaccine. Smoking is a risk factor. Please stop smoking if you are a smoker.

Can the third cervical cancer jab hurt?

Took me a minute...: To discern that you are referring to the gardisil/hpv vaccine, that requires three injections. I do not think one can reliably predict who will experience pain, and who will not. I know the pain of having cervix cancer, or loving some one who has it is worse than the brief pain of the vaccine. To borrow from nike, just do it!
