    Frequently Asked Questions

    In a woman's cervix, when the cells change, it can result in cervical cancer. The cervix is the organ that connects the vagina and the uterus. Cervical cancer can spread into the deeper tissues of the cervix and spread to other organs or parts of the body. Cancer often metastasizes towards the rectum, vagina, bladder, liver, and lungs.

    Did you know that cervical cancer is preventable? A vaccine shot can prevent cervical cancer caused by HPV or the human papillomavirus.

    Cervical cancer grows at a snail's speed which means that there could be plenty of time to catch it before anything disastrous or unpreventable happens. Thanks to increased pap tests and screening initiatives, cervical cancer claims fewer lives each year.
    Women in the age range of 35 to 44 years get affected by cervical cancer, but at least 15% of new cases are recorded in women aged 65 and above. Fortunately, most cervical cancer doctors have the expertise and are well trained to conquer the disease.

    There are three types of cervical cancer:

    1. Adenocarcinoma: Cancer grows in cells that produce mucus.
    2. Mixed Carcinoma: The type of cancer has two other variants.
    3. Squamous cell carcinoma: Cancer develops in the cervical lining and can be caught early in 90% of cases.

    If you are looking for one of the best cervical cancer doctors in India, you may consult with Dr Praveen Kammar, widely regarded as one of the best oncologists in India.

    Early-stage cervical cancer does have symptoms, and cancer that grows to advanced stages has more severe symptoms.

    Listed below are the symptoms of cervical cancer:

    1. Light bleed or blood spots between periods.
    2. Heavy menstrual bleed (heavier and longer than usual).
    3. Bleeding after pelvic examination, douching, or intercourse.
    4. Heavy vaginal discharge.
    5. Painful intercourse
    6. In menopause yet bleeding
    7. Persistent pelvic and back pain.

    If you are experiencing the symptoms mentioned above, you may consult with your primary care provider, who will direct you to an oncologist if need be.

    According to FIGO (International Federation of Gynecology and Obstetrics), the major categories are as follows:

    1. Stage 0-Abnormal cells in the innermost cervical lining are also referred to as carcinoma in situ.
    2. Stage I-Invasive type of cancer that is restricted to the cervix.
    3. Stage II-Locoregional cancer spreads beyond cancer but does not move towards the pelvic sidewall or bottom area of the vagina.
    4. Stage III-Cancer cells spread to the lower half of the vagina or pelvic sidewall and towards the non-functioning kidney or hydronephrosis that resembles ureter invasion.
    5. Stage IV-Cancer extending beyond the pelvis and into the bladder or rectum mucosal layers.

    If you fear you have cervical cancer, you may look for one of the best doctors for cervical cancer in India or take an appointment with Dr Praveen Kammar, who understands not just the complexities of the disease but associated risk factors as well.

    The risks factors that encourage cervical cancer are listed below:

    • Many sexual partners: you are at high risk of contracting an HPV infection that causes cervical cancer if you or your partner have more sexual partners.
    • Early sexual activity: If you have sex at a very early age, your risk of having HPV increases.
    • Other sexually transmitted infections (STIs): Your chances of contracting HPV increases with sexually transmitted diseases like Chlamydia, syphilis, gonorrhoea, and HIV/AIDS.
    • Weak immune system: You can get cervical cancer if your immune system is weak due to other health conditions or infections.
    • Smoking: Squamous cell cervical cancer is often associated with smoking.
    • Exposure to diethylstilbestrol (DES), the miscarriage prevention drug: if your mother had consumed DES while pregnant with you, then chances of you getting clear cell adenocarcinoma increases.

    For more information on cervical cancer, you may book an appointment with an oncologist.

    Here are a few questions about cervical cancer and its treatment that you can ask your doctor.

    1. Inquire about the type of cervical cancer present in your body.
    2. Has cancer spread to other organs?
    3. Can the stage of cancer be recognized, and what does the diagnosis mean?
    4. Can the treatment be customized, or are there any other tests needed?
    5. Do I need to seek medical help from other practitioners?
    6. Who can help me regarding the costs of cancer diagnosis and treatment and also information regarding insurance coverage?

    One of the best doctors for cervical cancer in India, Dr Praveen Kammar, understands the turmoil rising inside the patient's mind and patiently addresses all the above questions and much more.
