Cervical Cancer Symptoms

In its earliest stages, cervical cancer usually does not have symptoms. This is why regular Pap tests are so important, particularly if you are sexually active.
When cervical cancer does have symptoms, they vary from person to person. Tell your doctor if you have any of the following:
These symptoms do not always mean you have cervical cancer. However, it is important to discuss any symptoms with your doctor, since they may signal other health problems.

Some people have an elevated risk of developing cervical cancer. Review the cervical cancer screening guidelines to see if you need to be tested.

When cervical cancer does have symptoms, they vary from person to person. Tell your doctor if you have any of the following:
Cervical Cancer Diagnostic Tests
If you have symptoms or Pap test results that suggest precancerous cells or cervical cancer, your doctor will examine you and ask you questions about your health; your lifestyle, including smoking and drinking habits; and your family medical history and will perform one or more of following tests.
1) Colposcopy
This test uses an instrument called a colposcope to look more closely at an area of abnormal tissue on the cervix, vagina or vulva. A colposcope is a microscope designed to examine the cervix. It looks like a pair of binoculars on a stand.
2) Biopsy
In a biopsy to look for cervical cancer, the doctor removes a small amount of tissue from the cervix to look at under a microscope. Types of cervical biopsies include.

Punch biopsy

The tissue sample is removed from the cervix using biopsy forceps, an instrument used to grasp tissue firmly and remove it.

Endocervical curettage (ECC)

A tissue sample is scraped from an area just past the opening of the cervix using a curette (small, spoon-shaped instrument) or a thin, soft brush.

LEEP (Loop electro-surgical excision procedure)

This test uses a small wire that is heated with low-voltage, high-frequency radio waves to remove cells from the cervix.

Cone biopsy

A cone-shaped sample of tissue is removed so the pathologist can see if abnormal cells are in the tissue beneath the surface of the cervix. The amount of tissue removed is larger than that removed with other types of biopsy.
3) Cystoscopy or proctoscopy
If you are diagnosed with cervical cancer and your doctor thinks it may have spread, you may have a cytoscopy or proctoscopy or both. These tests use lighted tubes to view the inside of the bladder (cystoscopy) or the anus, rectum and lower colon (proctoscopy).
4) Imaging tests
which may include:
5) Laparoscopic retroperitoneal lymph node dissection :
In this minimally invasive surgical procedure, lymph nodes are removed to help find if cancer has spread.

New radiation therapy techniques allow to target tumors more precisely, delivering the maximum amount of radiation with the least damage to healthy cells.
Radiation therapy may be used instead of surgery. Sometimes it is necessary after surgery to treat cancer that has spread or to reduce the risk that a cancer will come back.
