Cervical cancer has now taken up alrming proportion world-wide. Two three symptoms of cervical cancer that I know are bleeding after sex and intermenstrual bleeding.If you are feeling something like then get it tested immediately.Cervical cancer is treatable in the early stages. There's a vaccine for it from Merck called Gadasil or something like that.

To know more about cervical cancer, you can go to the cervical cancer page on this site itself. If you need detailed opinion then Dr. Vineet Gupta, oncologist is listed on the home page at www.healthcaremagic.com/specialists . Inter cycle bleeding is a common symptom.

My symptoms are heartburn, lower back pain, irregular period, heavy discharge, hemroid, shortness of breath, stabing pain in chest/pelvic. I am a 15 year old female and my mother and sister had the first signs of cervical cancer. Could I possably have that? If not, which I hope not, what could be causing all of this?

I have just been told I may have an ectopic cervix as mucus was found on it during a routine sexual health check up. The tests have been sent off and I am awaiting the results but I am worried that this may be cervical cancer. Recently I had some bleeding after sex (which wasnt my period) and I have taken a pregnancy test which came back negative. I had a smear about a year ago and everything was normal. Can you tell me what this is?

my mum was diagnosed with breast cancer 4 years ago. she had had a standard mammogram which picked it up. 3 years previous she had a clear mammogram. she couldnt feel any lumps herself, but after the mammogram she was called in to say there was something wrong. she was called in for a biopsy. at the biopsy she was told, that she had at least two tumours in same breast and when they pulled the fluid off that she had cancer. they didnt even need to send it off anywhere to tell her this. she then went for a mastectomy,and they removed her breast and lymph nodes. she was told 22 lymph nodes were cancerous (i dont know how many she had, if any, over and above the 22 ) and it was aggressive. she had chemo then radiation followed by a daily pill (eg. armidex but im unsure). i cant establish the full facts but when she does have a check up they don't take any blood test. she had a premliminay bone scan when diagnosed and was told it wasnt in her bones. she doesnt say much about it,but i have noticed that recently she has left the room feeling sick and my son has told me that she has also been clutching her throat. i really dont have a clue what the prognosis is and am obviously worried
