Cervical cancer happens in the cells of a lady’s cervix (the lower area of the uterus that is connected with the v**ina). Ladies stand a risk of having cervical disease immediately they become s*xually active. It can happen to ladies of any age.
It could be caused by too much body weight, having different s*x partners, poor immunity, early pregnancy, use of contraceptives. Cervical cancer most times doesn’t give any sign at the early stage leaving individuals at a danger of not knowing they have it until it’s past the point where it is possible to be cured.
1. Pain during intercourse
A common warning of cervical cancer is pain during s*x which usually indicates the cancer has spread across the reproductive organs as well as tissues and needs to be checked (the cervix should be examined) as soon as possible.
2. Pain/discomfort when passing out urine
Discomfort during urinating is one of the major signs of cervical cancer. Discomfort like stinging, burning sensation when taking a pee maybe an indication for STDs in some cases but it should be checked as this could also be a sign of cervical cancer which requires expert attention and fast!
Abnormal bleeding is also another indicator of cervical cancer. Bleeding after s*x, in between the monthly cycle and unusually regularly should be checked out by a physician.
4. Bleeding/Heavy Menses
Prolonged, heavy and continuous bleeding during the monthly cycle is also a sign to watch out for. (If you change sanitary towels more than once within an hour or two make sure to get checked by an expert)
5. V**inal Discharge
Sometimes v**inal discharge isn’t a cause for alarm but when it becomes unusual, watery, pale or brownish (mixed with blood in some cases), it’s best to see the doctor ASAP.
