Cervical Cancer

Cervical Cancer
Cervical Cancer is a disease in which cells in the body grow out of control. Cancer is always named for the part of the body where it starts, even if it spreads to other parts later on. When cancer starts in the cervix, it is called cervical cancer. The cervix is the lower narrow end of the uterus. The cervix connects the vagina (birth canal) to the upper part of the uterus. Cervical cancer developes in the tissues of the cervix. It is usually a slow- growing cancer that may not have any symptoms but can be found with Pap test. Ignoring symptoms may allow the cancer to progress to a more advanced stage and lower your chance for effective treatment. Even better, don't wait for symptoms to appear. Have a regular Pap test and pelvic examination.
                                                      The procedure is easy and simple. Cells are scraped from the cervix and put under a microscope. This way they can see if it is early enough to start treatments right away. It is not as painful as one might think it is. You might feel a pinch on your cervix and bleed a little. The part that can be uncomfortable to someone is the cold medal that they use to separate you so they can get in enough to get what they need for testing. They also check to make sure that everything is in its place and in working order.
