Uterus Cancer Treatment in Madurai

Cervix is a part of the female reproductive system. It has an outer surface opening into the vagina and an inner surface facing the uterus. When there is a growth of abnormal cells in the lining of the Cervix, it denotes the development of Cervical Cancer.

Types of Cervical Cancers

Depending on the cells of origin, Cervical Cancer is divided into two types. The most common one is Squamous Cell Carcinoma and the less common one is Adenocarcinoma, found in the upper portion of the Cervix.


Causes of Cervical Cancer

Human Papilloma Virus or HPV is one of the biggest risk factors of Cervical Cancer. It is a common infection affecting the Cervix, vagina, and other areas. Some other causes are occupational exposure to Diethylstilbestrol or DES which is an artificial form of female estrogen, a weak immune system, lifestyle habits like smoking and using contraceptives  are at risk of Cervical Cancer.
Symptoms of Cervical Cancer

Symptoms constitute unexplained loss of appetite and weight, persistent body pains including pain in the pelvic bone, fatigue, and fractures and swelling in the legs. Medical attention is required immediately if any of these symptoms are experienced.

Cervical Cancer Diagnosis

The Pap Smear test is used as a screening test all over the world to detect Cervical Cancer. Once this test is done, based on the type and stage, the next round of tests are conducted.

Treatment for Cervical Cancer

The treatment of Cervical Cancer depends on several factors. Various options of treatment will be suggested by your doctor based on your test results, the location of the Cancer, the speed of spreading and development, your age and overall health condition, and finally, conceiving. If a woman wants to conceive in future, the cancerous tissue is removed or destroyed through surgery without removing the uterus.

Another factor that determines the course of treatment is the stage the cancer is in. Loop electrosurgical excision procedure, cryotherapy, and laser therapy are used to treat the initial stages of Cervical Cancer.
