After a hysterectomy it is possible to get cervical cancer if a SUBTOTAL hysterectomy has been done where the cervix is not been removed. The other possibility is that after a TOTAL hysterectomy you may develop a vaginal vault cancer that may mimic the symptoms of a cervical cancer.

Treatment of breast cancer does not pre-dispose to cervix cancer but the hormone treatment with tamoxifen can lead to Endometrial (uterine) cancer.

Persistent headache after treatment for breast cancer needs a thorough evaluation to rule out multiple causes and to rule out metastases also.
