9 Warning Signs Of Cervical Cancer That Should Never Be Ignored

September 15, 2015 2 min read

Cancer is something many of us would rather not think about but remaining educated, and aware, can go a long way to possibly saving your life. Maybe you don't want to talk about cervical cancer, but ladies, it is a must. Some risk factors for the illness include: whether or not you’ve contracted HPV, if you eat a whole diet, have used birth control, have HIV, smoke cigarettes and your genetics. But beyond that, here are 9 thingsto look out for: cervical cancer
  1. Pain in the legs - This may be a sign of early cervical cancer. Leg swelling and pain can be caused by an obstructed blood flow.
  2. Vaginal Discharge - Unusual vaginal discharge can be a sign of cancer or any number of other ailments so it is best to consult your doctor if something is off.
  3. Unusual Bleeding - This can be a common problem but if it is recurring -- especially between menstrual periods-- it may be time to consult a physician.
  4. Discomfort when urinating - This 'discomfort' can present in a number of ways: stinging, burning or tightness are most common. If this is the case for you, again, consult a doctor. Best to find out what is going on.
  5. Irregular urination - You may not think this is that easy to track but it is if you know what you're looking for. Bladder control is the number one issue here. An inability to control one's bladder can be a sign of cervical cancer. This is especially true if there also happens to be blood in the urine.
  6. Irregular Menstrual Cycles - This is always something worth discussing with your OBGYN. It may be a sign that you are at an increased risk for cancer and as such, you may require more frequent screening.
  7. Sex is uncomfortable - Sex can be painful if you have cervical cancer. Again, cancer isn't the only reason you may be finding sex uncomfortable so, as said before, it is best to talk to your doctor.
  8. Pain in the pelvis - Cramping in the pelvis may be a sign of tumours but keep in mind that the cramping may also be due to menstruation.
  9. Back pain - Like pain in the pelvis, back pain may be a sign of tumours or it may be mensturation.
Many women may be familiar with these symptoms and may have experienced them when attributed to another malady. The best course of action here it to be aware, to listen to your body and when in doubt, even the slightest of doubts, consult a physician. Source: Healthy Life Tricks Do you follow us on Instagram?
