There are different stages of cervical cancer, ranging from stage I through stage IV. The staging system measures how far the disease has advanced.Stage IA: This is microinvasive, or very early cervical cancer. The five-year survival rate ranges from 96 to 99 percent. Treatment options for stage IA include surgery.Stage IB: In this stage, the cancer is visible without the use of a microscope. Five-year survival rates for this stage of cervical cancer are 80 to 90 percent. Common treatments include surgery, chemotherapy and radiation.Stage II: In stage II, cancer has spread outside the uterus to adjacent tissue, but has not reached the lower third of the vagina or all the way to the lateral wall of the pelvis. Five-year survival is 65 to 69 percent. Common treatment for stage II cervical cancer include surgery, radiation and chemotherapy.Stage III: Stage III cervical cancer indicates that the cancer has advanced beyond the parameters for stage II or has caused changes in the kidney. Five-year survival is 40 to 43 percent. Common treatments include chemotherapy and radiation.Stage IV: Stage IV is the last stage of cervical cancer. In this stage the cancer has left the pelvis and affected more distant organs. The five-year survival rate for this stage of cancer is 15 to 20 percent. Types of treatment include chemotherapy and radiation.

Cervical cancer is a tumor or growth on the cervix, which is the lowest part of the uterus. All sexually active women are at risk for developing cervical cancer, with those who have had multiple partners having an increased risk. When detected early, cervical cancer is highly treatable and there are numerous treatment options available. The type of treatment chosen typically depends upon how early the cancer is detected. In addition, factors such as the age of the patient and whether or not they intend to have children, also factor into the decision. The most common treatment options are surgery, radiation therapy, and chemotherapy. Surgery is a very common treatment for this condition and can range from a simple biopsy which removes just the cancerous portion, to a radial trachelectomy which involves the removal of the entire cervix. In more advanced cases, it is sometimes necessary to perform a hysterectomy and remove the uterus as well. If the cancer is detected early, surgical options have a very high rate of success in treating cervical cancer Radiation therapy for cervical cancer can often be done internally by implanting radioactive materials directly into the cervix or uterus. Using external radiation therapy machines is also an option. Radiation therapy is an effective method of treating cervical cancer, and may often be used in conjunction with other treatments such as chemotherapy and surgical options. Chemotherapy involves using specialized drugs to target specific cancer cells, and there are several varieties of chemotherapy drugs available which target cervical cancer. Chemotherapy may also be used before or after radiation therapy, in an effort to totally eradicate the cancer cells. As with any cancer treatments, there are side effects involved with each of these. Your doctor will consider many factors before discussing treatment options, including the stage of the cancer as well as your overall health and well-being. Early detection of cervical cancer provides the best chance for successful treatment, so it is important to have PAP smears performed on a regular basis.

The cervical cancer vaccination is a vaccination that is applied in 3 separate doses. The does are in the form of needles and are carried out over 6 months (in England). The vaccine protects the user from certain species of the Human papillomavirus virus, which is associated to cervical cancer genital warts and some other less common forms of cancer (anal, vulvar, vaginal and penile). There are currently two HPV vaccinations on the market, Gardasil and cervarix. Both vaccines protect against two of the HPV types that can cause cervical cancer and some other genital cancers. Gardasil also protects against two of the HPV types that cause genital warts.

What is cervical cancer?The cervix is the female hormone that connects the uterus to the vagina. Cancer occurs when the cells in the cervix begin to grow and divide abnormally. It is caused by the human papillomavirus or HPV. Women who have had many sexual partners or had sex before the age of 18 are at the greatest risk for developing cervical cancer. Additionally, cervical cancer is more common in women who have a weakened immune system.What are some of the symptoms of cervical cancer?Most women will not notice any symptoms during the early stages of cervical cancer. Bloody discharge and pelvic pain are signs of advanced cervical cancer. Women who have any symptom that concerns them should not hesitate to see their doctors.What are some of the treatment options for cervical cancer?If a patient is in the early stage of cervical cancer, the doctor will elect to perform an hysterectomy. A hysterectomy is a procedure that removes the uterus. If a woman is found to be in the advanced stage of cervical cancer, the doctor will order radiation therapy or chemotherapy. Radiation therapy uses energy to kill the cancerous cells. Chemotherapy uses drugs to get rid of the cancer.What can be done to prevent cervical cancer?One of the best things that women can do to prevent cervical cancer is get pap smears regularly. Women who are between the ages of 21 and 30 should get a pap smear at least once every two years. A woman should get a pap smear at least every three years after her 30th birthday.Doctors also recommend that women and girls who are between the ages of 9 and 26 get the Gardasil shot. This vaccination helps protect against some of the most dangerous types of HPV. Additionally, women should limit the number of sexual partners that they have.

Ovarian cancer and cervical cancer have nothing in common other than the fact that they occur in the female reproductive tract. Cervical cancer can be detected early with pap smears and other screening tests, and prevented with HPV vaccine. There are few, if any, screening tests for ovarian cancer. Only hormonal contraception has been shown to lower the risk of ovarian cancer.

Cervical cancer is the third most common type of cancer in women. It starts in the cells on the surface of the cervix. Cervical cancer is a slowly developing cancer, but is also 100% treatable. By having yearly pap smears, early detection is possible. Almost all cervical cancers are caused by the human papilloma virus, or HPV. HPV is spread through sexual intercourse. Risk factors for cervical cancer include having sex at an early age, multiple sexual partners, a weakened immune system, or an inability to afford a pap smear checkup. Some symptoms of cervical cancer are abnormal vaginal bleeding between periods, periods becoming heavier than usual, back pain, leg pain, and a loss of appetite are just a few signs you may have cervical cancer. Cervical cancer is very treatable if it is detected early enough. Treatment depends on the stage of the cancer, the woman's age, or her desire to have children in the future. If the cancer is detected early enough, the cancerous tissue can be removed surgically. There are three types of surgery for removing cervical cancer at an early stage. Loop electrosurgical excision procedure is the first type, which uses electricity to remove abnormal tissue. This procedure involves a thin, low-voltage electric wire loop to cut out the abnormal tissue. It is a very effective treatment and is less expensive then other treatments. Another type of treatment is Cryotherapy which freezes abnormal cells. during this procedure, liquid carbon dioxide circulates through a probe placed next to the abnormal tissue. It freezes the tissue causing some discomfort to the patient. Also laser therapy is another treatment option. It uses light to burn the abnormal tissue. It takes about five minutes for the procedure and has a minimal recovery time. If the cervical cancer has spread, an option may be to have a hysterectomy. If the cancer has spread, there is still a 92% survival rate if you begin treatment immediately. The best thing you can do to prevent cervical cancer is to make sure to have a yearly pap smear for early detection, and use precaution during sexual intercourse.
