My sister has stage 4 cervical cancer. She has a secondary tumor, 5cm, on her adrenal gland. We know it is terminal, but can we expect months? Years?

It depends: Her treating doctor can answer this question better. Not all stage-4 Cervix cancers are fatal. So the answer to your question depends on her exact stage(localized versus metastatic) and also on her cancer's response to treatment. Sometimes adrenal tumors can be removed surgically provided the pelvic tumor is under control.There are also new treatments coming along for cervical Cancer(e.g. Avastin) ...Read more

I'm sorry to give you that news. Take care of her, and you. ...Read more

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?

My mom just told me that she has stage 3 cervical cancer. I'm worried if this is life threatening?

My mom just told me that she has stage 3 cervical cancer. I'm worried if this is life threatening?

Yes: Stage 3 means that the cancer has spread to the lower vagina (3a) or the side of the pelvis (3b). This can certainly be life threatening. The usual treatment is radiation and chemotherapy at the same time with relatively good success. Her doctor may or may not do lymph node staging before radiation to evaluate how far up to give the radiation. She does need treatment right away. ...Read more

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. ...Read more
