Signs Of Cervical Cancer page covers the causes, signs, symptoms and treatment, along with what you can do to fight this cancer.

Signs Of Cervical Cancer

Causes of Cervical Cancer:

Infection of the HPV virus is the most common cause (almost all cases of Cervical cancer include HPV infection), though, and not all women with HPV get Cervical cancer.  HPV is a sexually transmitted virus.  If you don't have yearly Pap smear tests, you are at high risk of cancer.  Other risk factors are bearing many children, multiple sexual partners, Sexual intercourse at an early age, oral contraceptives, smoking, weakened immune system due to illness, surgery, medications or nutritional habits. 

Signs And Symptoms of Cervical Cancer:

There no symptoms for early Cervical cancer.  This is why you should get an annual pelvic exam and a test called a Pap smear.  Possible later signs include vaginal bleeding, unusual vaginal discharge, pelvic pain or pain during sexual intercourse.

Treatment Cervical Cancer:

Prevention:  The best way to prevent Cervical cancer is to remain celibate until marriage.  For those who are sexually active you may wish to ask your doctor about the new HPV vaccines to protect against the most common forms of the HPV virus.  There are many treatment options for Cervical cancer if it's found early enough.  Due to the aggressive nature of this cancer, in most cases, the recommended treatment even in the early stages is total hysterectomy.  Laser surgery, cryosurgery (freezing), and local radiation therapy are other options.  If child-bearing is important enough for the risks, ask your doctor about other treatment options.  In the mid to late stages, the treatment options are limited to radiation and chemotherapy to try to slow the cancer and relieve discomfort. 

What You Can Do About:

If you've been diagnosed with a malignant Cancer, always retest and get a second opinion from another doctor.  Once confirmed, work with your doctor to make sure nothing you do interferes with the medical treatment.  Get the specific diagnosis in writing, including the name and stage of the Cancer.  Search the National Cancer Institute and other websites to learn all that's being done for your cancer.  Print relevant pages and make a list of specific questions for your doctor.  Write down his answers and check them on the web.  I know the doctor has a good education, but this is your health and your life.  The actions to help prevent Cancer below can often be used in stronger doses to fight cancer, but check with your doctor.

To help prevent Cancer:  If your family or lifestyle (see causes, above) puts you at a higher risk, you should consider these things essential to help prevent Cancer:  Follow a low fat diet with lots of fresh fruits and vegetables.  Fill your life with aerobic activity and exercise.  Make sure you're drinking enough water.  Supplement your diet with natural Multi-Vitamins and Multi-Minerals, along with extra doses of the following to strengthen your immune system:

Antioxidants; including Beta Carotene, Flavonoids, LycopeneVitamin A, Zinc, Vitamin E, Vitamin C and CoQ10.
Organic Germanium; 300-450mg divided into 3 doses a day.
Fiber; 12-15 grams extra from vegetable sources or supplements.
Garlic; 3 cloves per day.
Omega 3; 3 per day, 1 at beginning of each meal.
Lecithin; taken with the Omega 3.
Lipoic Acid

Complete Healing:

Cancer is at best frightening, frustrating and worst, fatal.  We both know there are no guaranteed cures or quick fixes, whether medicine, nutrition, herbs or anything else.  Many illnesses are "incurable" from the medical standpoint.  Complete healing is possible...including mind, body and spirit...from God.  If you want God's help with this or any problem, go to Healing From God.
