Is my cervical cancer terminal if it has only metastasized to the para aortic lymph nodes?

Oncologist. When it comes to cancer, many details can play a significant role. It is best to discuss this situation with a specialist for female genital cancers, gynecologic oncologist.

I . I am sorry that your daughter's disease has progressed and that she is still in pain. I suggest she see a good pain medicine doctor, preferably one who was trained as an anesthesiologist. There is something called an intrathecal pain pump. It is implanted under the skin of the stomach and a catheter is tunneled under the skin directly into the fluid around the spinal cord. It slowly puts pain medicine directly around the spinal cord similar to how women get an epidural for pain during child birth. This can sometimes control pain that is difficult to control with oral, intravenous, or skin-patch narcotics and a randomized trial comparing intrathecal pain pumps to these other medicines also suggested that people with the pumps live a bit longer, probably due to less side effects from the pain medicine. Patients can walk and do their normal activity with the pump, but there can be side effects and an experienced doctor is needed to place and manage the pump. There is also a possibility that some of her pain could be controlled with radiation to the back if the pain is from tumor in the spine and that a short course of radiation could help shrink or slow down growth of her neck tumor. I wish you the best. Read more...

Enlarged lymph nodes can be a one of the symptoms of HPV or cervical cancer?

Maybe. This would depend on how advanced the tumor is. If it is a small minimally invasive tumor it is unlikely that enlarged lymph nodes have tumor deposits within them. Most of the time lymph nodes are enlarged because they are simply reacting to an infection or other process and not because one has cancer. Read more...
