Need more info

Different types of treatment are indicated for different stages of this disease. Very early disease is treated with only surgery. If more advanced, radiation or chemoradiation therapy may be indicated as well.

How long do i have to live with stage iv untreated cervical cancer?

It depends on the si

Cervical
The site of metastases determines the prognosis and survival. Most patients will live from one to two years depending on where the cancer has spread to. once the vital organs like liver or lungs are involved then it is likely to be about one year or less. You should actually consider taking treatment with chemotherapy which is quite well tolerated and can extend life for another one or two years.

Upper right quadrant pain radiating to left side. Should i get tested for ovarian or cervical cancer?

Other ideas

Cervical
Based on these symptoms, I would focus more on gallbladder and pancreas issues. But if you are having abnormal menstruation, then a gynecologic evaluation is certainly reasonable.

I have a very sharp pain on my left side above my hip when walking and breathtaking i have been in remission 18 months for cervical cancer?

Depends

Cancer
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.

Dr. Ed Friedlander answered:

my sister in law has thyroid cancer which has spread to her bones and spine also she has cervical cancer and uterine cancer we want to know the rough time scale we have left for her?

No way to tell

Uterine_cancer
If she's relatively young, the possibility of Li-Fraumeni affecting the family is a concern. But there is no way, even if I had much more information, that I could tell you how much longer your loved one has with you -- even Chief Justice Rehnquist survived a few years longer than he was supposed to. Cherish every day you have with her.

Could you tell me what happens if my cervical cancer has not gone after treatment?

Depends

Open-uri20130405-25784-1ds7pz8
If it is not completely gone them choices include surgery or a change of chemotherapy. I assume radiation was used already and if not then radiation can be used, but only once. Surgery can be a major procedure but a good choice if the cancer is completely localized to one place, if not then chemotherapy.

What happens if a man gets cervical cancer jab?

Protect against HPV

Cancer
The cervical cancer jab is actually a vaccine against the Human Papilloma Virus. This virus can cause genital warts in both men and women, and can cause cervical cancer in women. If a man gets this vaccination, he will be protected against some of the high-risk types of HPV to prevent genital warts (and also prevent him from infecting sexual partners with the virus).

My mom has cervical cancer stage iv, what happens now?

It depends on where

Ovarian_cancer
Stage IV means her cancer has spread to other parts of her body. If she has a single tumor in one lung, it's possible that could be removed surgically. But if she has many tumors in different places, she will need treatment with chemotherapy. And in that case, there is no cure. The goal is to keep her feeling good for as long as possible. I'm sorry to give you that news. Take care of her, and you.
