10 Warning Signs of Cervical Cancer You Should Not Ignore | Natural Health Forever

Cervical cancer is one of the most common
cancers in women worldwide. It occurs in the cells of the cervix, the
lower part of the uterus that connects to the vagina. Almost all cases of cervical cancer are caused
by a virus called human papillomavirus (HPV). Women of all ages are at risk of developing
this cancer after they begin having sexual intercourse. Risk factors include unsafe sex, multiple
sex partners, being overweight, use of oral contraceptives, genetics, smoking, poor immunity,
multiple pregnancies and first pregnancy at a young age. One of the scariest things about this cancer
is that it does not show any symptoms in its early stages. After the disease has spread to the bladder,
liver, intestines or lungs, the symptoms are more prominent. Top 10 warning signs of cervical cancer you
should not ignore. 1. Abnormal Vaginal Bleeding Most women diagnosed with cervical cancer
experience irregular bleeding. An untimely bout of vaginal bleeding that
occurs regularly could be an indicator of cervical cancer. It could also be due to other medical conditions,
such as a hormonal imbalance, pelvic inflammatory disease or an infection in the pelvic organs. Contact your doctor if you experience bleeding
between menstrual cycles or following sexual intercourse. 2. Unusual Vaginal Discharge A little bit of clear, odorless vaginal discharge
is normal. However, if vaginal discharge increases, smells
foul or has an irregular appearance, it could be a sign of infection or cervical or endometrial
cancer. When suffering from cervical cancer, vaginal
discharge could be heavy, pale, watery, brown or mixed with blood. If you experience this symptom, report it
to your doctor immediately. 3. Pain during Intercourse Painful intercourse is another important warning
sign of cervical cancer. This symptom indicates advanced cervical cancer,
which means the cancer has spread throughout tissues and reproductive organs. Apart from pain, you may also experience other
symptoms, such as thick, foul-smelling vaginal discharge. There are other possible reasons for this
particular problem, such as an infection or STD. Do not ignore this symptom. Get your cervix examined by your doctor. 4. Pelvic Pain Pelvic pain is common among women. Cramping and aches are a normal part of the
menstrual cycle and do not usually indicate the presence of cancer or any other serious
condition. However, pain that lasts for longer periods
of time and occurs more frequently could be a sign of cervical cancer. If suffering from cervical cancer, you may
experience pelvic pain at unusual times, and the pain may start suddenly at any time during
the month. In addition, such pain usually does not occur
unless the cancer is in a very advanced stage. If you have experience pelvic pain or pressure,
visit your doctor to find out the exact cause and rule out the possibility of cancer. 5. Discomfort while Urinating Cervical cancer can also cause discomfort
during urination. In fact, it is one of the most obvious and
prevalent symptoms of this deadly disease. Urinary discomforts include burning, stinging
or a tight sensation while urinating. Such symptoms occur when the cancer has spread
to nearby tissue. This requires immediate attention to prevent
further damage. Get checked by your doctor for proper diagnosis
and treatment. 6. Heavier and Longer Menstrual Periods Menstrual periods that are heavier and longer
than normal are another common warning sign of cervical cancer. Irritation of the cervix, possibly due to
spread of cervical cancer, can cause this problem. Bleeding is considered heavy if you have to
change sanitary napkins or tampons more often than once every 2 hours. Any change in the consistency of monthly periods
should be discussed with your doctor. Remember that prevention is better than the
cure. 7. Loss of Bladder Control Needing frequent bathroom breaks is common
among pregnant women and people who have increased their fluid intake. If you have this problem without any known
reason, it may need further evaluation. Bladder control is a primary issue when suffering
from cervical cancer. It typically indicates that the cancer has
spread beyond a localized area and is affecting the bladder or other parts of the urinary
tract. People diagnosed with this cancer often experience
loss of bladder control coupled with blood in the urine. If you have loss of bladder control (incontinence)
or notice blood in your urine, consult a doctor. 8. Unexplained Weight Loss As with other forms of cancer, unexplained
weight loss can indicate cervical cancer. When suffering from cancer, the immune system
works hard to fight it. If you are suddenly losing weight, it could
be due to cervical cancer. It’s important that you get a medical checkup. 9. Constant Fatigue If you are feeling low or lack of energy most
of the time, despite resting, it could be a cause for concern. When suffering from cancer, healthy red blood
cells are replaced by white blood cells to fight off the disease. This causes anemia, leading to fatigue, lack
of energy and loss of appetite. In addition, there is decreased oxygen supply
to the body. An anemic response is a warning sign that
the cancer is progressing rapidly, and you need to get it treated as quickly as possible. 10. Leg Pain Women diagnosed with cervical cancer often
experience swelling and pain in their legs. When the cancer spreads, it obstructs blood
flow, which causes swelling in the legs. Swollen legs often create a sore, painful
sensation, making it hard to carry out your day-to-day activities. When caused by cervical cancer, the pain tends
to be constant and increases in intensity over time. At times, there also may be back pain. Remember, having leg pain does not mean you
have cancer. If you have leg pain and a few more of the
above-mentioned symptoms for a few weeks, it is best to get yourself checked by a doctor. Preventive Tips: Women between 20 and 30 years old should get
a screening every 3 years. Those 30 to 65 years old should be screened
every 3 to 5 years. Get an HPV vaccination before your early 20s. Quit smoking and avoid secondhand smoke. Take the right steps to prevent STDs. This will help reduce your risk of cervical
cancer. Thank you for watching ! If you like the video, give it a thumbs up
