What is the first stage of cervical cancer?

What is the first stage of cervical cancer?

Carcinoma in situ: Infection of the cervix by the human papilloma virus (hpv) is associated with precancerous lesions and cancer. Some people confuse precancerous lesions (dysplasia) with actual cancer. It is important to know that regular pap tests will detect precancerous cells that can be monitored or treated.

I have a stage 1-2 cervical cancer, how would they treat it?

Depends on stage: Treatment of cervix cancer is quite stage dependant. In very small early stage i cancer, a small surgical procedure may be adequate.

Your : Your best option at this time is to seek care at your local county hospital. They will base the amount you pay on your income and other factors, therefore if you are out of work then you will likely pay little to nothing. Also county hospitals are usually teaching hospitals associated with large university hospitals, this means that they have a wide variety of specialists, including gyn/oncology, which is what you need. Your back issue can be addressed as well. Continue to fight. You have so much to live for. Good luck. ...Read more

In order to get cervical cancer you must first go thru precancerous cells? If yes How long it takes from there to cancer aproximatly? Thank you

Yes, 7-10 years: Cells do not go from normal to cancerous overnight. Instead they become precancerous and it takes 7-20 years to progress (though often it regresses and heals on its own). Thus, screening by pap smear every 3-5 years can prevent most cervical cancer. See http://screening.iarc.fr/doc/RH_natural_history_of_cc_fs.pdf ...Read more

Having been a "des" baby and cervical cancer in family should I wait for insurance before first pap in 6 years?

Having been a "des" baby and cervical cancer in family should I wait for insurance before first pap in 6 years?

DES cancer risk: That is a tough question to answer, because you don't want to wait to long, but if you have an abnormal pap smear before you get insurance, that might be a "pre-existing condition" for some insurance companies. The best thing is either to get insurance now, or see what options are available in your community for a free exam (susan g komen, planned parenthood, free clinics). ...Read more

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

Hi-can i get the first vaccine shot in my country and the rest in the us? (for cervical cancer)

Why not?: Just go and see a gynecologist or a pediatrician who deals with young girls under 18-20 years of age. He/she can give you a shot and provide a medical report of what he did . This note should be carried and given to your next doctor whom you want to give you further injections for the hpv vaccine for prevention of cervical cancer. ...Read more
