About cervical cancer symptoms and its myths

About Cervical cancer Symptoms and it’s myths

Early diagnosis is essential when you think of any form of cancer, as it increases the chance of survival. But some of the tumours are more dangerous than others if left untreated and cervical cancer is one among them. Recognising cervical cancer at the stage-1 in the earliest stage will have the highest chance of surviving. But getting diagnosed at stage 4 will have only a 5% chance of surviving for five years or longer. That’s the reason why it’s crucial to know what changes to look out for and get them tested ASAP. 

Based on the survey conducted by Jo’s Cervical Cancer Trust, nearly 3000 women are diagnosed with cervical cancer every year in the UK. 

What are the early signs you need to look?

Not every woman diagnosed with cervical cancer have symptoms; that’s the reason why it’s crucial to visit cervical screening. 

Early signs can include: 

  1. Abnormal bleeding: The most common and most initial sign of cervical cancer tends to be irregular bleeding which will be caused during or after sex, between periods and also post-menopause. This will occur when cancer cells grow on the tissue below the cervix. It is the alarming sign in postmenopausal women who no longer have periods. There is no age limit for developing cervical cancer. 
  2. Discomfort or pain during sex: Pain during sex can be a sign of several different issues, but is cervical cancer. As this cancer often comes with no symptoms, pain during sex is one key indicator and a sign that the tumour is expanding to surrounding tissues.
  3. Unintended weight loss: Weight loss is not a good sign if it occurs apparently without any cause. An appetite loss and unexpected weight loss will be signs that the body isn’t working correctly. 
  4. Lower back pain: It could be a sign that something wrong with your reproductive system. Persistent pain – just one-off twinges in the lower back, pelvis or appendix can be symptoms of cervical cancer. 
  5. Unusual vaginal discharge: Discharge is common for everyone, but you need to know what is normal. If you notice that the colour, smell and texture has changed, then it is a sign that you need to visit our Private gynaecologist. When tissues lack oxygen, it can cause an infection which leads to strange-smelling discharge.

As the disease advances, it can result in: 

  • Increased need to pee
  • Blood in pee
  • Bleeding from the bottom
  • Diarrhoea
  • Incontinence
  • Lower limb swelling

What to do if you undergo any of these symptoms?

If you recognise any of these symptoms, it’s good to visit your private gynaecologist immediately. It doesn’t matter if you have had a recent smear test or not – or if you are under 25 and have not been offered anyone yet. Though it’s rare cervical cancer can strike earlier. Though cervical cancer is rare and all of these symptoms are often caused by something other than cancer. But if you notice any symptoms, it is imperative to get checked by your consultant gynaecologist. Usually, women don’t have any symptoms early, and that’s why it’s so absolutely crucial that you go for a smear test. 

Cervical Cancer common myths – busted

As there is a lot of misinformation about the disease out there and that’s putting loads of us at risk. 

  1. HPV is rare: False
  2. Only promiscuous people get HPV: False
  3. Smear Tests are cervical cancer tests: False
  4. Smear tests will hurt: False
  5. Only young people will get Cervical cancer: False
  6. If you have the HPV vaccine, then you no need to go for a smear test: False

Breaking down women health taboos cervical screening at 20 year low

Breaking Down Women’s Health Taboos – Cervical Screening at 20-year Low

Many problems are affecting the health of women and girls, remain off-limits. This strain often causes women to neglect concerns regarding their health; the fear of embarrassment can leave them suffering in silence. One must do more to homework to address this and break down taboos surrounding gynaecological health. 

Women usually make up 51% of the population, and healthcare professionals have unique opportunities to influence women’s health across their life course positively. Most of the concerns are not about ill-health but about helping them to do normal things like having safe sex, prevent pregnancy, become pregnant and have healthy menopause and post-menopausal life. Here we have come up with the most impact that must be promoted on the concerns of preventative measures to better the health of all women at every age and stage of their lives. 

One in four women never take up their screening invitation: It is vital to see that gynaecological health always remains a taboo subject among the ordinary people. About 21000 women being diagnosed with one of the five forms of gynaecological cancer every year in the UK. Cervical cancer has to lead to the death of two women a day, even though it is a preventable disease, yet the screening rates are meagre at their lower level in two decades. There is proof that shows that routine screening that can detect pre-cancer abnormalities prevents up to 75% of cervical cancers. However, only one in four women doesn’t go for their screening invitation. Early detection will increase the survival rates, so it very necessary to create awareness about the disease, especially about the symptoms and preventive methods. 

Later maternal age and weight can increase the risk of miscarriage: This digital era has brought with it the largest group of adolescents in history ever, and we quickly ensure that they take control of their fertility. To have a successful life, women need to be more cared for, even educate them about their health, and it would be good if you empower them to make informed about their health. Presently around 15% of the couples experiencing infertility, it’s nearly about 3.5 million people in the UK. When the women decide to have a baby or are already pregnant, she may not realise the impact of maternal age and weight can have on her ability to conceive or have a healthy pregnancy. As we know that female fertility starts to decline gradually from the late 20s and more rapidly for the mid – 30s onwards. 

The fact is that taking longer to get pregnant or later maternity and being overweight can involve a higher risk of miscarriage, more complicated labour, and high rates of medical intervention at birth. 

Mrs.Sarah Hussain advises both men and women about the implications that maternal age . For more details, contact us at or book the appointment now.

A woman usually goes through lots of changes during her reproductive lifetime. It was sure that gynecologic health issues would arise from time to time. Here are some of the common problems you may face during your reproductive years include:

Major 4 Gynaecologic problems and treatments

  • Yeast Infection: Vaginal yeast infections are a common cause of vaginal irritation. Three out of four women, one will experience a yeast infection in her lifetime. Yeast infections are occurred by an overgrowth of the yeast cells that generally live in the vagina. Common factors that associated with yeast infection are uncontrolled diabetes, perfumed feminine hygiene sprays, topical antimicrobial agents and tight, inadequate ventilated clothing and underwear. 
    • Treatment: Yeast infections can be cured with over the counter or prescription medications. 
  • Endometriosis: Women usually have their periods that discharge of the endometrium or menstrual fluid from inside the uterus at the end time of every menstrual cycle. Even these tissues grow outside of the uterus, and it can break apart and bleed during your period. The problem will be blood from the displaced tissue on the outside of the uterus may have no place to go, which lead to inflamed or swollen tissue. The inflammation will produce scar tissue which also develops into lesions or growths. 
    • Treatment: Over the years the treatment for endometriosis has been varied, doctors now recommending that there is no need to go for treatment if the symptoms are mild, medication is suggested only if there is a pain.  
  • Irregular Bleeding: Menstrual bleeding may last on an average of five days during those days the blood loss will be about 4 ounces or eight tablespoons. Many women will experience one massive bleeding day during their periods preceded and followed by lighter flow days. The bleeding may be reasonable for some women to experience heavy bleeding, which is two times the average amount and still be within the normal range. Some women with more massive bleeding for more days in a row along with clots and cramping it is advised to go for their private consultant.
    • Treatment: If you are experiencing consistently heavy bleeding, clots or cramping, it is best suggested that to go for your private gynaecology consultant. The treatment for irregular bleeding during periods will involve prescription drugs or surgery in case bleeding is severe.   
  • Uterine Fibroids: Uterine fibroids are nodules of smooth muscles and tissue that form within the wall of the uterus. These are not cancerous but can cause excessive or painful bleeding during te menstruation, frequent urination or infertility. 
    • Treatment: Hysterectomy is the only treatment for Uterine Fibroids. Doctors declared that there is no need for any intervention beyond over the counter anti-inflammatory drugs or prescriptions drugs are recommended only when there is a huge pain.

Effects of stress on women's health

Stress Effects On Women’s Health

There is much difference that men and women react to stress. Even there are many discrepancies in how stress impacts women’s health compared to men. Studies found that due to stress, one in seven people can have a mental health issue mostly in women. When reacting to stressors, the body will release hormones such as cortisol known to impact the immune system, digestive system, skin and more. Even this cortisol causes a temporary increase in energy production, sometimes at the cost of other bodily processes not required for immediate survival such as the immune system and digestion system. In women, these hormones changes impact bodily processes in unique ways that lead to short and long-term health problems. Let’s have a look at some of the effects of stress on Women

Effects of stress on Women

  • Irregular Periods: Stresses like acute and chronic can lead to body hormone balance that can cause a miss or late or irregular periods. Researchers have told that about 50% of women have a higher risk than women who don’t work in higher stress positions.  
  • Gain Weight: High-stress levels are interrelated with increased appetite and sugar cravings, leads to weight gain. In women, the cortisol ratio is like higher the cortisol to a lower waist to hip ratio and also decreased metabolism. 
  • Problems getting pregnant: With higher levels of stress, there is a high chance to have issues getting pregnant in women than with lower levels of stress. 
  •  Depression: Even women were almost as likely as men to have symptoms of depression. Researches have differentiated the stress responses and stress reactivity between sexes to brief this discrepancy. 
  • Decreased Sex drive: Women with more stress may take longer to get stimulate and have low sex drive than women with little pressure. 
  • Stomach Upset: Long-term stress may lead to irritable bowel syndrome, which is twice as common in women as in men. Short-term stress may lead to diarrhoea or vomiting. 

Finally, if you feel devastated by stress and its effects, visit your consultant ways to deal with it.
