Cervical Cancer / HPV Vaccine News From Medical News Today

Cervical cancer develops from a cell that is abnormal. Abnormal cells can be present for years before one becomes cancerous and multiplies out of control to form a cancerous tumor. Often the initial pre-cancerous abnormalities of cervical cells are caused by infection with the human papillomavirus (HPV). Treatment depends on various factors and general health, and may consist of a combination of surgery, radiation and chemotherapy.
  1. Human papillomavirus (HPV) is a widespread sexually transmitted infection. It does not usually cause severe symptoms, but some strains can increase the risk of certain cancers. Can you breastfeed if you have HPV? In this article, we look at the safety and risks to help breastfeeding women make an informed decision.
  2. There is no cure for cancer, but successful treatment can remove all signs of it. Doctors may base the outlook on the 5-year relative survival rate. This is the percentage of people likely to survive for 5 years after diagnosis compared to people without cancer. Here, we look at seven cancers with high survival rates.
  3. Cervical polyps are small growths on the cervix. They may cause symptoms that include spotting between periods or bleeding after sexual intercourse or menopause. Causes may include high estrogen levels or chronic inflammation. It is possible to remove polyps surgically, and they do not usually return. Learn more here.
  4. Menstruation, endometriosis, and infections are all possible causes of cramps and discharge. For most people, the discomfort will pass, but severe or lasting symptoms could be more of a cause for concern. This article looks at reasons for cramps and discharge along with treatment, prevention, and when to see a doctor.
  5. A new study reveals that microbe composition and other conditions in the vagina are linked to the development of cervical cancer in all its stages.
  6. Vaginal bleeding between periods is a common experience with many possible causes. When this occurs, a person may notice light brown spotting in their underwear after their period has ended. Hormonal changes and contraceptives are common causes, though bleeding between periods can also be a sign of certain cancers.
  7. Friable cervix occurs when someone’s cervix becomes extra sensitive. Symptoms may include bleeding between periods, pain inside the vagina, or unusual discharge. Friable cervix is often caused by an STI or pregnancy but can also result from cervical cancer. In this article, we discuss causes, symptoms, and treatment.
  8. It's Cervical Health Awareness Month, so we turn to an important topic: the Pap test. What is it, should it scare you, and why should you get it done?
  9. Researchers suggest that the success of radiation therapy against cancer cells could be increased significantly, thanks to blueberries.
  10. Cervical ectropion is a condition where cells from inside the cervix form a red, inflamed patch on the outside the cervix. Learn more.
  11. Researchers have found a link between oral sex and smoking and an increased risk of a type head and neck cancer triggered by the human papillomavirus.
  12. A cancer diagnosis always comes as a shock. What are some coping strategies you can use to stay in control of the situation? We gathered some suggestions.
  13. Researchers have revealed a key aspect behind the mechanism that allows HPV to promote cancer cell survival. This discovery may suggest a better treatment.
  14. Women who receive human papillomavirus (HPV) testing, in addition to a pap smear, receive a faster, more complete diagnosis of possible cervical precancer, according to a study of over 450,000 women...
  15. Scientists have identified a molecular pathway by which some types of human papilloma virus (HPV) might increase the risk of skin cancer, particularly in people with the rare genetic disorder...
  16. Drug that mimics action of folic acid shrinks half of tumours.A new targeted treatment for ovarian cancer has shown 'very promising' results in an early clinical trial - shrinking tumours in...
  17. Duke University researchers have developed a handheld device for cervical cancer screening that promises to do away with uncomfortable speculums and high-cost colposcopes.
  18. The menopause occurs when a woman has not had a period for over 12 months and marks the end of female fertility. An oophorectomy is a surgical procedure in which a woman's ovaries are removed, prompting menopause. This MNT Knowledge Center article explains more about this surgery and its side effects.
  19. Cancer is an extremely complex disease, but its definition is quite simple: the abnormal and uncontrollable growth of cells.
  20. Cervical cancer is often thought of as a disease that primarily affects young women. Because of this, many older women fail to keep up with appropriate screening as they age.
