3 Signs of Cervical Cancer of The Uterus That Can Not be Ignored

The cervical cancer is a tumor that develops in the cells of the cervix.
This type of cancer is ranked second among the most common women’s cancer in the world. According to WHO, a woman dies of cervical cancer every two minutes. On the other hand, many doctors have revealed that about 90% of diagnosed patients suffering from cervical cancer develop some symptoms that should not be overlooked.
How is the disease does it manifest?
The early stages of the disease are asymptomatic; that is to say that the symptoms do not manifest. Nevertheless, some doctors have found that the first symptoms that indicate that the disease is at an advanced stage are:
1. Pain in the legs
In the early stages of the disease, some women experience pain in the legs and swelling. Following the first phase, the cervix is swollen and can impede blood flow. This causes swelling and pain sensation in the legs.
2. Urinary Burns
The cervical cancer can be diagnosed by conducting regular analysis of urine. In case the disease is detected by using urine, this implies that the tumor has spread to nearby tissues and it is absolutely necessary to a specialist. Doctors confirm that the urine burns are quite common symptoms in women who suffer from uterine cancer. Urinary tract burns are not only a sign of infection in the bladder, it is necessary to consult a specialist.
 3. Bleeding after intercourse
With the development of the tumor at the neck of the uterus, the amount of blood becomes more abundant, irregular and accompanied by pain in the pelvis, spine and legs. Some patients suffer from swelling of the lower limbs. In this case, the tumor has entered the last stage (metastatic tumor) and compress blood vessels. In the case where the tumor spreads, it can affect the urinary bladder and cause burns and haematuria (blood in the urine). When the tumor affects the rectum, it can develop symptoms such as tenesmus (pain in the anus), difficult or painful bowel movements and blood in the stool. If the tumor affects the ureters (upper urinary tract) it can cause hydronephrosis; an increase in the volume of the pelvis (body receiving the urine formed in kidney tissue and ensure its flow into the ureter) or renal failure. In later stages, it can cause vesico-vaginal fistula (abnormal communication between the bladder and vagina) or recto-vaginal (abnormal communication between the rectum and vagina).
