With cervical cancer being one of the world’s most common types of cancer affecting women, it is incredibly important that you should know the signs to look out for. But you may be asking yourself, “What is cervical cancer?” Simply, it is a cancer that develops from the cervix. The cause of the cancer is an abnormal growth of cells. These cells have the ability to invade or spread to other parts of the body.

Now that we know what it is on a basic level, let’s look at some of the key signs that you should be looking out for.

1. Vaginal Bleeding.

If you experience bleeding outside of your normal cycle, it could be a sign that something is wrong. The same can be said for bleeding that occurs during or after sex. You should contact your doctor if this becomes worrisome.

2. Unusual Vaginal Discharge.

If you experience this, you should see a doctor to determine the root cause. Also, if it is accompanied by an unusual odor, don’t wait to get checked out.

3. Pain During Sex.

There may be other reasons for uncomfortable intercourse, but if nothing has changed in your sex routine, it might be a sign that you should see a doctor.

4. Pelvic Pain.

This can also be a sign that there might be something wrong. This is especially true if your experiencing any other symptoms on the list.

The identical twins, who are only 12 weeks old, underwent an operation at London's Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH) on July 27 - the day after they were born. PRESS ASSOCIATION Photo. Issue date: Wednesday October 17, 2012. Despite being told that survival chances were low, the sisters are now doing well and are smiling 'bubbly babies', their mother Angela said. Mrs Formosa, from Bexleyheath, Kent, said she had a 'textbook' pregnancy with her first daughter Lily, now aged five, so finding out the twins were joined was a 'shock'. 'At an early pregnancy scan they said the twins looked very close together so I went to King's College for another scan,' the 32-year-old said. 'Between 16 and 20 weeks we found out that they were joined - I didn't know what to think, I was shocked and I felt sad. See PA story HEALTH Conjoined.
