Cervical Cancer Signs & Symptoms (& Why They Occur)

Cervical Cancer (cancer of the cervix) is the 3rd or 4th most common gynecological cancer worldwide with an estimated age of onset of 52 years old. Cervical Cancer is caused by human papillomavirus virus (HPV) infections, with particular types of HPV being more problematic than other types. Cervical Cancer is often discovered in the early stages of disease by screening and diagnostic methods (pap smear and colposcopy), so in some cases patients may be asymptomatic. However, as the disease progresses, more signs and symptoms of Cervical Cancer become apparent, including abnormal vaginal bleeding and other findings related to metastasis of the cancer. In this lesson, we discuss the signs and symptoms of Cervical Cancer, including why those signs and symptoms occur.
