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. ...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
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. ...Read more

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. ...Read more
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. ...Read more

Through sex mostly: The human papilloma virus, or hpv, is spread by sexual intercourse and increases the risk of cervical, anal and penile cancers.

Smoking is the only consistent nonsexual risk factor, according to the us preventive services task force. ...Read more
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. ...Read more
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. ...Read more
Couple things: Significant advances in image guided brachytherapy have been made and shown improved outcomes for certain women.

Also a new trial open asking whether additional chemo after chemo and radiation is beneficial for certain women (outback study). ...Read more

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! ...Read more
HPV: Almost all causes of cervical cancer are attributed to abnormal changes of the uterine cervix from previous exposure to certain strains of HPV (human papillomavirus) obtained through prior sexual contact. It's believed to take many years to develop after initial exposure and so regular gyn check-ups and pap smears are recommended. Recently, a vaccine for younger women (under 26) is recommended. ...Read more
Bleeding: ..Be it a spontaneous irregular spotting or after sex. Sometimes there can be a watery or mucous discharge but that can be the result of many other problems. Pain is usually a sign of advanced disease. Regular screening with pap smears and hpv vaccination are your two best weapons against this, one for early detection and the other for prevention. ...Read more

Usually forms an: Ulcerated tumor at cervix, then spreads to the soft tissues around the uterus called parametria. It can also spread to the vaginal walls, bladder, rectum, and pelvic lymph nodes.
