Cervical cancer, or cancer of the cervix, begins on the surface of the cervix. There are two main types of cancer of the cervix - squamous cell carcinomas and adenocarcinomas. About 80% to 90% are squamous cell carcinomas, while 10%-20% are adenocarcinomas.
In many cases, cervical cancer can be linked with known risk factors for the disease. Some risk factors can be avoided, while others cannot. Some risk factors include :
- An irregular screening history - Women who have not regularly had a Pap test (smear) are at increased risk of cervical cancer.
- HPV Infection — Some types of human papillomavirus (HPV) are transmitted sexually and can infect the cervix. Cervical infection with HPV is the primary risk factor for cervical cancer. However, only a very small percentage of women infected with untreated HPV will develop cervical cancer.
- Sexual History — Females who begin having sexual intercourse before the age of 16 and females who have had many sexual partners are at a higher risk of HPV infection and developing cervical cancer. The prevention of sexually transmitted diseases reduces the risk of cervical cancer.
- Smoking — Cigarette smoking is associated with an increased risk of cervical cancer.
- HIV Infection — Women who have been infected with HIV have a higher-than-average risk of developing cervical cancer
Symptoms of Cervical Cancer
The most common symptom is vaginal bleeding (following intercourse or between menses) and vaginal discharge. However, precancerous changes of the cervix (abnormal pap smears, dysplasia, precancer) usually do not cause pain or any symptoms. Therefore, it is very important that all women be screened by a pelvic exam and a Pap test since precancerous changes are usually asymptomatic.
