Cervical Cancer In Women,why It Is On The Rise?

The cervix is a part of the woman,s reproductive system.Cervix produces mucus which enables sperm to move freely from the womanliness to the uterus.During pregnancy the cervix closes tight to keep the baby in the uterus and during child birth the cervix dilates (open up) to allow the baby pass through the womanliness.Early sexual contact,Multiple sex partners,Cigarette smoking and Oral contraceptives are why it is on the rise.Cancer of the cervix donot cause pain or other symptoms,so it is important not to wait till you feel pain before seeing a doctor,when the disease gets worse,women have abnormal womanliness bleeding,bleeding after sexual intercourse,heavy bleeding during menstrual periods which also last longer than usual,bleeding after menopause,increased womanly discharge,pelvic pain,and pain during sexual intercourse.A woman with any of these symptoms should see a doctor in time so that early diagnosis and treatment can be effected.DR JERRY.

if you are already sexualy active you wont be able to get the vaccine in most countries. you can contract one of the cancerous strains of HPV an not develop abnormal cells for years, even decades or could start developing them within days of the infecion depends on the person. the vaccine does nothing if you already have the virus.

The causes of cervical cancer are not known, but some things do increase the risk of getting it. The risk increases with age, but it can occur in quite young women (over the age of about 30 years). Almost all women who develop cancer of the cervix have been infected by the human papilloma virus (wart virus). There are over 200 types of Human Papillomaviruses. A few cause genital warts (see the topic Genital warts), but these viruses are not linked to cervical cancer. Only 3 types of HPV are linked to cervical cancer.

The HPV virus is sexually transmitted, and the risk of picking up the virus increases with the number of partners that a woman, or a woman's partner, has had. Barrier methods of contraception, such as the condom, do not seem to affect the likelihood of getting an HPV infection.

hpv causes most cases of cervical cancer and is very easy to contract and the strains that cause cancer do not have symptoms (strains that cause warts are not believed to lead to cervical cancer)

ALL women should have a pap smear every 2 years after thier first sexual encounter. HPV vaccines are available for women and in some countries men and is predicted to prevent nearly 90% of cervical cancer. your daughter should have the HPV vaccine long before she begins having relations, before she even thinks about having relations. it is recomeded for children aged 10-12.

You need to go to the gyn as soon as possible and get yourself checked. This is not something one can toy around with. Remain calm, it could be something else, but please do get yourself checked and be alert to changes in your body.

Good luck!

premature sexual activity (as in having sex at a young age), multiple partners, smoking, viral infection with the hpv (human papilloma virus- causes warts - transmitted thru oral, womanly, BehindBased intercourse and can also affect the mouth and the throat, and simple skin to skin contact with an area infected by hpv is even to contract the infection), chlamydia infection, a diet low in fruits and vegetables, long term used of oral contraceptives, multiple full-term pregnancy, and family history of cervical cancer. Those are just factors that are linked to a higher risk/likelihood of developing cervical cancer. Many women have one or some of those risk factors without ever developing cervical cancer and many women never develop any of the symptoms nor have any of the risk factors and develop cervical cancer. The single best strategy is prevention by making sure to get a yearly exam with pap smear. Early changes in the appearance of the cells that line the cervix and allows for detection of pre-cancerous cells, which make treatment easier and more effective, and prognosis better.

Hope this helps.
