Stages of Cervical Cancer

In its development, cervical cancer goes through four main stages, each of which is characterized by the appearance of some specific signs of manifestation. Treatment of the disease is also prescribed depending on the degree of its development.

Cancer of the cervix of the zero stage is said if diseases and processes preceding the degeneration of the cells of its mucosa into malignant are found in this organ. In this case, precancerous conditions include: leukoplakia, human papilloma, cervical erosion . Each of them provides a separate treatment.

Cervical cancer stage 1

The diagnosis of cervical cancer stage 1 means that the malignant tumor is located only in the surface epithelial layer of the mucous membrane of the organ, has a limited size and does not extend to nearby organs. The first stage of cervical cancer is divided into stages 1A and 1B. In the first case, it is a question of a tumor, the size of which does not exceed 5 millimeters, in the second case, a tumor reaching a size of 4 centimeters, but not affecting neighboring organs.

The survival rate of patients in the case of qualified treatment of the first stage of uterine cancer is almost 100%. As the main treatment, the removal of the affected part of the organ is prescribed, radiation therapy can be additionally performed.

In case of successful operation and in the absence of complications, the reproductive function of the woman’s body can be preserved.

It is important to remember that various precancerous conditions and the tumor itself may return in a few years, so every woman who is cured of an illness should undergo a regular physical examination.

Cervical Cancer Stage 2

Cancer of the cervix stage 2 means that the malignant tumor has already grown into the walls of the organ, but has not yet spread to neighboring systems of the body. It is also possible for it to grow into nearby lymph nodes, which is extremely unfavorable. With the blood flow, the malignant cells quickly spread throughout the body, therefore metastases (secondary tumors) can occur in organs distant from the main tumor.

At this stage of development of the disease, the woman is disturbed by unreasonable uterine bleeding, vaginal discharge, pain in the pubic area and abdomen, the period of menstruation is significantly delayed, it becomes painful.

Treatment can be carried out in one of three available ways:

  • surgical removal of the affected organ along with the nearest lymph nodes. At the same time, the abdominal wall is examined for the presence of metastases in the organs located in the abdominal area. If necessary, abdominal lymph nodes may be removed;
  • a course of radiation therapy, during which the cancer of the tumor and the organ itself is irradiated;
  • chemotherapy, the introduction into the patient's body of large doses of special drugs that kill cancer cells (cisplatin).

Perhaps a combination of three methods to achieve the best result of treatment.

Cervical Cancer Stage 3

Cervical cancer stage 3 involves the germination of the tumor deep into the uterus, as well as its spread to the inner wall of the pelvis, the vaginal area. As a result of the vigorous activity of the tumor, it is possible to stop the work of the kidneys, blockage of the ureters, which leads to the inevitable death of the organism.

The main symptoms of this stage of the disease can be identified: copious discharge from the vagina, swelling of the extremities, problems with emptying the bladder, intestines, constant weakness of the body, pain in the abdomen.

Treatment in this case depends on which organs are affected and by how much. Recommended removal of the uterus, lymph nodes. To stop the growth of distant tumors, chemotherapy, radiation and radiotherapy (with the introduction of small doses of a radioactive substance in the region of the diseased organ) are prescribed.

The prognosis of survival of patients in the latter stages of the disease is extremely unfavorable.

Cervical Cancer Stage 4

Cancer of the cervix stage 4 is said if the malignant tumor has spread not only to the reproductive organs, but also to the intestines, the nearest bones and the bladder.

The basis of treatment in this case is chemotherapy (a combination of various drugs). Removal of the organ itself is usually not carried out. This stage of cancer is usually considered incurable. However, the world's leading clinics (in particular, Israeli and German) offer treatment even for very heavy patients. This treatment is very expensive and can take several years.

Even a complete cure for cervical cancer cannot guarantee that the tumor will not return again. The percentage of recurrent disease is extremely high in patients who have undergone successful treatment. However, the ability to defeat cancer at the initial stage of its development is also very great.

bikash kumar: My mom has cervical cancer from August 2016. I visited to SGPGI Lucknow, doctors advised for chemotherapy and radiotherapy. I have asked to doctor if my mom will well after this treatment, they told there is no guarantee either she can well or also she can die during the treatment. I was fully scared and requested to doctor, please tell me the truth what should I do?, my father was also a doctor and he was death in 2011, due to kidney sickness. I have referred to doctor that I am also son of a doctor and please don’t treat me as a patient. The doctor asked about my background like, hove many brothers and sister we are, how much monthly income of my family, how much land we have, how many brothers and sisters have gotten marriage etc. That time only 2 sisters have got married, and we three (me, one younger sister and one younger brother) were unmarried, I explained the doctor what was the true. He advised that don’t go for chemotherapy and radiotherapy, just try you all will get marriage during your mother presence and also given some medicines and told leave everything on God. Doctor told you just set in your mind that your mom is only 1 to 2 years with you, i was fully mentally disturbed that time and as per doctor started to find bridegroom for my sister and finally I did my sister marriage in Nov 2017. Day by day problem is increasing and in this day it is in last condition. Some times its come in mind that anyhow, I should start the process of chemotherapy and radiotherapy but its confusing me. Please anyone has well experience in this matter, please suggest me, your reply is deeply requested.

Gwen Dawn: I did a biopsy today, very painful, I had two pap smear done and resulted in some unusual cells. I am praying that I don't have cancer. This is so stressful...

Teodora Ghita: I was diagnose, after a conization with stage 1B1 carcinoma. My question is: is it really necessary to do the radical hysterectomy type II, as the gynecologist insists to do it. The biopsy revealed that the margins are clean and the CT scan was ok, also the RMI was good. Tumor marker SCC came out very small (0,7 and the reference is <=1.5). I really don't know what to do and I need to speak with somebody that had passed thru the same steps and is facing similar situation. Thanks
