Symptoms of Cervical Cancer


Cervical Cancer  symptoms are  often misinterpreted as PMS or Ovulation pains. The biggest difficulty in Cervical cancer is that it hardly shows any symptoms, not until it reaches a advanced stage, though it differs from woman to woman.

Abnormal bleeding

Women who are suffering from cervical cancer experience abnormal vaginal bleeding. This is heavy to light during the month.

Heavy white discharge
Another symptom of cervical cancer is increased vaginal discharge. This again differs from women to women, it may smell bad, would be thick or contain mucus. Every time you viist your gynecologist inform her about these unusual white discharges.

Pelvic pain
One may not experience pelvic pain during normal menstrual cycle. This cervical cancer symptom may last for hours and can scale to dull pains or sharp aches, mild or very severe.

Pain during urination

Bladder pain or pain during urination can be a symptom of advanced cervical cancer. This cervical cancer symptom usually occurs when cancer has spread to the bladder.

Bleeding between regular menstrual periods, after sex, or pelvic exam
Bleeding after sex or pelvic exam can be cervical cancer symptoms. This is due to the irritation of the cervix during these activities. While a healthy cervix may have a very small amount of bleeding, many conditions may cause bleeding after activities like sex.
