Cervical Cancer In Short Time
No: Cervical cancer tends to be a rather slowly developing/progressing cancer, and typically takes many years to progress to cancer (if untreated or undiagnosed) from the time one first contracts the hpv to the development of cancer. (also: getting the high risk hpv virus infection does not mean that one will 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
Highly variable: Depends on the cell type, hormone receptor status. Cancer stage at diagnosis, prior treatments and chemotherapy, where the metastases are located, how well the tumor responds to treatments, etc. Every person & situation is different & the oncologist would have much more information for you. ...Read more

Hard to say: We know that some have a decline in effect if the 3 dose series is not completed.Work with similar products suggests the possibility of lifetime antibody protection. However, since it is a newer vaccine it will take another twenty five or more years of use and study to confirm the longevity of this protection. ...Read more
Between 10-20 years.: Hpv infection per se does not mean that one will develop cervical cancer. It depends upon the type of hpv infection. Types 16 and 18 are high risk hpv that can develop into cervical cancer. Befpre cancer develops, the cervix goes into stages of dysplasia.(mild, moderste, severe, in-situ cancer, that can be detected in regular pap smears and can be treated to prevent its progression to cancer. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Probably not: Although, smoking increase the risk of many types of cancer, cervical cancer has been shown to be caused almost exclusively by hpv (human papilloma virus) that smoking has nothing to do with. Endometriosis is a disorder of uterine endometrium and that has nothing to do with the cervix either. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Can a woman have HPV cervical dsyplasma and oral cancer at the same time or does the virus stay in on place.
Can have both: Hpv infection comes from direct contact. Oral infection come from oral sex with infected partners. Keep in mind that most healthy people clear the infection without treatment. Also not all cervical dysplasia is directly caused by hpv infection. In the same vein it cannot be shown conclusively that the cancers are caused by hpv. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Quite a lot: Cancer, left untreated tends to progress slowly but sometimes quite fast.... It is somewhat unpredictable. But 3 years of waiting and watching will make most cancers incurable. Yet some of them can still be managed and treatable especially cervix cancer which remains localized for a much longer period of time than most other cancers. ...Read more
Good question!?: Almost all cases of cervical cancer are felt to be related to certain strains of HPV infection through prior sexual contact. It often takes many years for cancer to develop after exposure, and the vast majority of HPV infections do not turn into cancer. It's possible that family history & genetics may play some role in how likely one is to develop this cancer,though it's not yet well understood. ...Read more
I'm a 2yr (TN) breast cancer survivor. Do the odds of having cancer again, same or different anywhere in the body increase as time goes on?
Congratulations: As a rule, the risk of recurrence of the cancer you had goes down with time. It varies a lot depending on the stage and receptor status and I'm afraid there's no magic number after which the risk is zero (I've seen it relapse more than 15 years after surgery). As to other cancers, the risk depends on the kind. Some cancers have shared risk factors, be it genetic or lifestyle, some others.... ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Yes: A majority of colorectal cancers, if they recur, recur within 3-5 years, but it is possible to recur later as well. The other possibility is development of new cancers or polyps, which is why surveillance/screening colonoscopy may be warranted. Ask your doctor/surgeon for more information. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Can be hard to tell: A 2010 study looked at 100 cases of invasive ductal carcinoma and 50 cases of mixed ductal-lobular carcinoma. Mri was done on the opposite breast in 12 women, in each group. Mri found no cases of breast cancer in the opposite breast in the idc group, and found 1 case of in-situ (not invasive) breast cancer in the mixed ductal-lobular group. An oncologist can help look at studies for more results. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
It depends...: It depends upon factors that include the stage of the cancer, the psa level, and the treatments that are administered. Advanced prostate cancer is usually lethal, but some men can live quite a long time, even with later stage disease. There have actually been many recent breakthroughs over the past few years in treatments of advanced prostate cancer. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

The former responds poorly to surgery, irradiation, and chemo, but a secondary tumor might well be controlled with multiple measures.

Of the 5% of people who do have dysplasia after first having a Lletz and 1 year later a cone biopsy, how many will develop cervical cancer?
Depends on staging: If the procedures were done for CIN III also known as severe dysplasia or carcinoma in situ and it was eradicated TOTALLY by Pathology report then there are few recurrences of note. If the Lletz or LEEP procedure extended beyond the borders on the Pathology report or was invasive carcinoma then statistics are different entirely. ...Read more
