Cervical Cancer, a Disease That Scary Woman

Perhaps the closest anyone of us who've died from cervical cancer, or maybe we just know a little about this disease. If you feel frightened women with this disease it is very reasonable indeed. But I suggest not too excessive. The most important thing for us is to know about the disease completely so that we can prevent it.
Cervical cancer is a gynecological carcinoma who suffered most women. Direct cause of uterine carcinoma is not known with certainty. Extrinsic factors associated with incidents of suspected carcinoma of the cervix uteri is smegma, a viral infection Human Papilloma Virus (HPV), and spermatozoa. Cervical carcinoma arising in connection skuamokolumner cervix. Risk factors associated with cervical carcinoma is a form of sexual behavior and multiple sexual partners, parity, nutrition, smoking, and others. Carcinoma of the cervix can grow eksofitik, endophytic or ulcerative.

Investigations
There is some investigation that can be done to detect cervical cancer are:
1. Cytology by Pap Smear
2. Colposcopy
3. Sevikografi
4. Direct visual inspection
5. Gineskopi
6. Pap Net (with the results of the computerized examination is more sensitive).

Clinical Manifestations
From interviews with patients to gain the complaint metroragi, white or whitish purulent foul-smelling and not itchy, bleeding pasca coitus, spontaneous bleeding, and characteristic odor. Can also be found such as obstruction symptoms due to metastasis of urinary total vesica. In circumstances that further complaints will be found quickly tired, lose weight, and anemia. On physical examination, cervix can be palpated enlarged, irregular, and palpable tender. When tumors grew eksofitik the visible lesions on porsio or had reached the vagina. The diagnosis must be confirmed by histological examination and tissue obtained from biopsy.

Prognosis
Untreated cervical carcinoma or does not respond to treatment, 95 percent will experience a death in the two years after symptoms arise. Patients who had a hysterectomy and are at high risk of recurrence should continue to be supervised because it is through early detection can be treated with radiotherapy. After a radical hysterectomy, 80 percent of recurrences occur within two years.
