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

Please tell me how long it takes for to go from CIN 3 (carcinoma in situ) to cervical cancer?

I don't know: We were often reminded during pathology training that tumors don't read books. It best to see your doctor, and complete a course of treatment. The cells in cin3 look a lot like the cells in invasive cancer. I wish you the best.

Ask your provider: Over the counter pregnancy tests are pretty darned accurate so you're probably not pregnant but if you're four weeks late you should talk with your provider because there are other reasons your menses could be delayed.

Would termination of pregnancy be advised to a four months pregnant woman with stage III cervical cancer?

Would termination of pregnancy be advised to a four months pregnant woman with stage III cervical cancer?

Stg III a & b: Mean extension to upper 1/3 vagina for a, or to parametrial side wall. While this is curable, and the cure involves drugs and radiotheapy, terminating the pregnancy would allow life saving treatment now vs. Delay until foetal viability. Discuss medical facts with gyn-onc, probe the depth of what you want to do, speak with your partner and support network. Get the facts and do what your heart tells.

Get followed: Hopefully you're getting regular pap smears. Cervical cancer isn't going to develop overnight and is almost always preceded by at least one abnormal pap smear while it is still extremely curable.

No one knows: A clinical cancer has millions or billions of cells, by the time it is detected. (Cells are very tiny) To calculate the time required to go from a few to lots depends on the doubling time, which can varry even in similar tumors.

I had a hysterectomy 4 yrs ago and removed everything because I had beginnings of cervical cancer. Is it still necessary to grt chrcked by thr gynochologist?

I had a hysterectomy 4 yrs ago and removed everything because I had beginnings of cervical cancer. Is it still necessary to grt chrcked by thr gynochologist?

Yes: If you have a cancer indication for your hysterectomy, you should still be checked at least annually. The concern is that if something was missed during the surgery, you could potentially harbor an occult cancer that could then be discovered at a susbsequent exam.

What: What is the diagnosis that was told to you by all the doctors you have seen? What medication was prescribed? Vaginal "secretion" or discharge is typically not a sign of cervical cancer. A pap smear detects cervical changes including cancer, so if you have not had one this year, I recommend you get one. Back to the discharge. Have you been tested for std's? Vaginal cultures done? Please reply with the answers to my questions and a description of the discharge and any associated symptoms (odor, irritation, itching). Hope to hear from you soon.

What causes cervical cancer?

Infection with HPV: 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.

How lethal is cervical cancer?

5 doctors agreed:

Cervical Cancer: Review literature: in the US over 12, 000 new invasive cervical cancers and about 4000 cancer related death happened each year. With HPV vaccination this number expected to decrease more. In developing countries, especially in Africa the prevalence of invasive cervical and the death rate is much higher. In Africa it is still number one cause of cancer related death for women.
