The British newspaper “Express” reported that, according to the British National Health Service, it may be difficult to identify the symptoms of cervical cancer, as they can easily be confused with a less serious disease.
Cervical cancer is a type of cancer that develops in a woman’s cervix. Almost all cases of cervical cancer are caused by the human papillomavirus (HPV).
Most people with this type of cancer are between 30 and 45 years old. Regular cervical screening can also determine the risk of developing the disease even if no signs of cancer appear.
One of the main warning signs of cervical cancer is vaginal bleeding, and the Jo’s Cervical Cancer Trust has warned that any unusual bleeding could be a sign of the condition. Bleeding may occur before or after menopause, and it may not necessarily be related to your period.
And any new vaginal discharge, or discomfort during sex, may also be caused by cervical cancer. Some patients have also reported lower back or pelvic pain.
According to the authority, “cervical cancer may not cause any symptoms or the symptoms may not be clear. Symptoms of cervical cancer include unusual vaginal bleeding, changes in vaginal secretions, discomfort during sex, and pain in the lower back or pelvis.”
In this context, the Foundation noted, “Although this may be worrisome, remember that there are many different causes of unusual bleeding that may not be related to cervical cancer, including hormonal contraception and cervical ectropion.” Noting that you must speak to a doctor immediately if the woman notices any unexplained changes.
When the cancer becomes more advanced or spreads to other parts of the body, women may also develop unexplained weight loss.
Other symptoms may include loss of appetite, severe back pain, constipation, blood in urine, and even incontinence. However, all of these symptoms may be caused by other conditions and do not necessarily mean that you have cervical cancer.
There is no way to prevent cervical cancer, but the risks of some lifestyle changes can be reduced. Smoking also increases the risk of cancer.
And the British Commission stated that the immune systems of smokers are struggling to get rid of HPV infection from the body.
