How can women prevent cervical cancer?

Cervical Cancer is when abnormal cells that are found in the cervix turn into cancer cells. This cancer is mostly caused by the human papillomavirus, or more commonly known as HPV. Women could have HPV for years and not even know it, because sometimes it does not show any symptoms. A few symptoms to watch out for would be bleeding from the vagina that is abnormal, pain during sex, bleeding during sex, and discharge from the vagina that includes blood. Cervical Cancer is more common with women over the age of 30, but it is never to early to start thinking abut getting tested for this disease. Women today may think this test is something they should keep putting off but if you are over the age of 21 or if you have been sexually active for more than three years, you should take some time to get this quick test.

The test is called a Pap Test, or more commonly known as a Pap Smear. A Pap Smear is a quick test taking at the most 5 minutes. The doctor will have you lay on an examining table, and using a speculum will open the vagina to see the cervix. After the cervix is seen, the doctor will use a special brush to collect a few cells and send them off to the lab for testing. Also during the Pap Smear a doctor does a quick pelvic exam to check the uterus and ovaries for any imperfections.

The next step after the Pap Smear would be waiting to hear about your results. If everything is fine, your doctor will usually send out a generic letter saying everything checked out fine and you can come back in a year. The other circumstance is if they find something on your Pap Smear. If this happens the doctor is in contact with you to make you aware that abnormal cells were found on your Pap Smear and that you have to come in for a biopsy, and a colposcopy. A colposcopy is a test used to see a magnified and illuminated view of the cervix to look for the lesions or abnormal cells. To highlight these cells the doctor will use a solution, and any lesion will be illuminated. After viewing this the doctor will take a biopsy, which is the removal of a small piece of tissue, and they will send the tissue off to see if the abnormal cells are at a mild state. If this is so the doctor will recommend more frequent Pap Smears to make sure that the cells stay at the mild state, these tests would range from every 3-6 months, until you get a few normal Pap Smear in a row. If the Biopsy comes back with cells in a higher abnormal state, then your doctor will recommend what treatment plan is best for you to handle this disease.

Women can avoid getting Cervical Cancer, it is all about early detection. The earlier you can catch this cancer, it may be easier to get rid of this disease. If you can keep up with your yearly Pap Smears, the chances of the cancer being caught in an earlier stage are higher so it can be easier to get rid of.

Please call Raleigh County Animal Control- 304-255-9349. The owner at 612 Russell St. said his dogs are just fine being outside. I’m posting this photo I took of one of the dogs out there this evening as evidence, in case they don’t survive the night. Animal control checked on them and said there is nothing they can do.
The symptoms of cervical cancer depend largely upon which stage of progression the cancer has reached. In the early stages of cervical cancer, for instance, very few symptoms can be observed and many individuals experience no symptoms whatsoever. This is one of the reasons that it's vital to get regularly screened for cervical cancer and other types of health issues because an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure, particularly with something as potent as cancer of the cervix.

The reason there are typically no early symptoms of cervical cancer is due to the way in which this disease grows. It's a disease that is rather slow to develop and the location does not lend itself to particular sensitivity or visibility. Even though the cells of the cervix are undergoing changes (technically known as dysplasia), the direct effects may not be obvious. Some malignancies that develop close to a strong blood supply, for instance, may chip off and produce a bloody appearance. In the early stages of cervical cancer this does not occur.

As the disease progresses, there may be several symptoms that appear which are discussed below. It's important to note, however, that even in later stages of cervical cancer, many women are completely asymptomatic and only prevention, regularly screenings and pap smears will catch it early enough to be treated with maximum efficacy.

Some of the symptoms of cervical cancer in women who have had the disease for a while are:

• Vaginal Bleeding - Most women will experience somewhat unusual and seemingly random vaginal bleeding following various routine occurrences. For instance, vaginal bleeding can be observed after having sex, in between periods of menstruation and after a woman reaches menopause.

• Vaginal Discharge - Most women are quite in tune with their bodies and notice minute changes in odor, color and appearance of their vaginal secretions even if they are only paying attention passively. A bloody, watery vaginal discharge with an unpleasant odor and a somewhat heavy consistency may be an indication of the disruption of a woman's normal functioning.

• Pain During Sex - This is another potential indicator that a woman may have cancer of the cervix. You might also notice pelvic pain where there was none before.

Some of the advanced symptoms of cervical cancer may include:

• Back Pain - The various parts of the body are intimately connected and it's possible that problems in the cervix can manifest as back pain.

• Bone Fractures - This is typically a sign of advanced cervical cancer and indicates a general weakness of the body.

• Swollen lymph nodes - The lymph nodes are stations of immunity that swell up any time the body is facing some sort of microscopic threat. Swollen lymph nodes are a quintessential symptom of many types of disease, not just cancer, but they're excellent indicators of health problems that should be taken seriously.

• Fatigue - This is another advanced symptom and occurs when the body is so occupied with trying to fight off the threat and the cancer cells drain so many resources from the body, that the patient simply lacks their usual quantities of energy.

• Loss of appetite - This is a pretty serious symptom and points to a severe disruption of homeostasis within the body.

• Weight loss - This is also a rather generic symptom and should be considered in combination with other symptoms that may occur.

• Urine and/or feces coming from the vagina - This is a very severe symptom that should prompt you to seek immediate medical attention. Feces in the vagina are very dangerous for reasons of infection and their presence indicates a severe problem.

• Leg pain/swollen leg - This may seem like a disconnected symptom but like the others, should be thought of as only potentially indicative unless it is seen in conjunction with several others.

If you observe any of these indicators, be calm. Here's why: all of the signs and symptoms of cervical cancer have to be taken into account in the context of everything else. For instance, many women experience pain during sex because their partner is too rough or too large. Additionally, many women may have an unusual vaginal discharge that can be due to a yeast infection or an STD or any number of other non-cancer factors!

If, on the other hand, you experience several of these symptoms and the onset is rather sudden and unexpected, then it's certainly a good idea to go see you physician and have the appropriate tests conducted as soon as possible.

There is also a connection between HPV and cervical cancer that women should be aware of because it's been shown that up to 70% of all cervical cancer can be attributed to 2 specific types of HPV (16 and 18). The reason for this is that HPV causes abnormal cell changes and growth in the cervix. For this reason women who carry HPV should be especially vigilant for any symptoms and signs of cervical cancer.

It's important for women to begin seeing a gynecologist in their teenage years, which is the default recommendation by the American Congress Of Obstetricians and Gynecologists. This will help young women understand how to avoid risky behaviors that can lead to HPV infection (a major player in cervical cancer cases) and also make them aware of the symptoms associated with this disease.

Symptoms of cervical cancer after menopause are typically the same as for pre-menopausal women but would most noticeably include vaginal bleeding where it had largely stopped.

Every woman should certainly be on the lookout for the symptoms of cervical cancer and should be getting screened with pap smears and other diagnostic tools regularly to catch any abnormalities before the become a serious problem.

...And the most vital thing to reiterate is that these various symptoms of cervical cancer are NOT exclusive to this disease. Any number of disease including sexually transmitted diseases and other abnormalities may be responsible for a woman experiencing these indicators. A woman should still be on the lookout for symptoms of cervical cancer.

  1. Wtf

I live across the country and no way to help this particular dog? I hope you are saving it, whomever wrote this article. Just do it.

  2. I just looked up numbers in white pages for residents and they are not updated. There is nothing I can do. I hope this person is saving the dog themselves and I agree would like to see an update.

  5. Tell the ACO out there in W.Virginia ur gonna go over his head n report him if those dogs aren't removed. I'm personally ready to call many rescues in that area to do a check. This is not o.k. Those dogs need shelter.

  6. Not familiar with the laws in WV... however, more than likely, taking the dog will likely land this person in jail for theft... and the dog will be returned to the owner.

  7. Ya KNOW - stop telling other people to steal the dog - they will be arrested and the dogs returned - CALL - doesn't matter where you live - CALL and POST - THAT will help the dogs more than finger pointing
