Treatment Of Cervical Cancer

Saturday, September 1, 2012
Until recently, ovarian cancer is known as the "silent killer" because it is usually difficult to be detected until an advanced stage. Symptoms of ovarian cancer are not specific. Recent studies have shown that cervical cancer patients typically experience the following symptoms persist: abdominal pressure (feeling full, swelling or bloating) Feeling the urge to urinate constantly

Other symptoms include:

    Persistent indigestion (gas or nausea)
    CHAPTER habits change for no apparent reason, such as constipation
    Loss of appetite or quickly feeling full
    Pain during intercourse (dyspareunia)
    Weak and weary sustainable
    Pain in the area around the waist / hip
    Changes in menstrual cycle


Visit your doctor if you experience symptoms of abdominal swelling, bloating, pain in the abdomen / pelvis continuously for more than a few weeks. If the doctor does not find a diagnosis of uterine cancer, make sure you get a second opinion. Surely your doctor performs a pelvic exam. Your doctor may recommend one or more of the following tests to diagnose uterine cancer: ultrasonography (USG). Tumor marker CA-125. Many women with cervical cancer had an abnormal CA 125 levels in their blood. CT SCAN or MRI

If this test leads to cervical cancer, surgery will be performed (laparaskopi) which captured a small incision in the abdomen and the abdominal cavity exploration to determine whether cancer is present. If cervical cancer is confirmed, the surgeon and the pathologist will identify the type of tumor and whether the cancer has spread.


    Stage I. cancer is limited to one or both ovaries.
    Stage II. The cancer has spread to other locations in the pelvis, such as the uterus or fallopian tubes.
    Stage III. The cancer has spread to the lining of the abdomen (peritoneum) or into the lymph nodes in the abdomen.
    Stage IV. Ovarian cancer has spread to organs outside the abdomen.

Treatment of ovarian cancer usually involves a combination of surgery and chemotherapy.

In general, patients with ovarian cancer require extensive surgery that included the removal of both ovaries, fallopian tubes and uterus as well as the nearby lymph nodes and a fold of fatty abdominal tissue known as the omentum, where ovarian cancer often spreads.

After surgery, you will most likely undergo chemotherapy to kill cancer cells remaining. Initial regimen for ovarian cancer includes a combination of carboplatin (Paraplatin) and paclitaxel (Taxol) is injected into the bloodstream (intravenously). Side effects - including abdominal pain, nausea and vomiting - may occur.

Radiation is usually not considered to be effective for cervical cancer.
