Posted in: Cervical Cancer by Dr. Tarang Krishna

Myths can cause unnecessary worries about the health. These misconceptions can affect the way one responds or reacts to a diagnosis of the disease. So Cancer Healer Center, one of the best cancer hospital in India takes the opportunity to address some common myths around cervical cancer.

Myth: Cervical Cancer cannot be prevented.

Fact: Cervical Cancer can be prevented because some of the risk factors and causes have already been identified. The most common cause is the persistent infection of certain strains of HPV virus. Henceforth, HPV vaccination can help decrease the chances of you getting infected. It is possible to have cervical cancer due to strains of HPV which cause malignant changes in the cervix. So those who are vaccinated should continue to go for regular Pap smears as early changes in the cells can be detected. Other early symptoms are unusual bleeding between periods or after sexual intercourse so consult the doctor if you have any of these signs.

Myth: Cervical Cancer doesn’t affect young women.

Fact: The chances of cervical cancer increases with age, but even women in the 20s can develop cervical cancer. Cervical cancer is not hereditary. Therefore, if no one from your family have the disease, it does not mean you are at a lower risk of developing it. While sexual activities also poses risk for cervical cancer, especially when it starts at a young age, women who are in multiple relationships can develop cervical cancer.

Myth: Old women can skip Pap testing.

Fact: Half of the population diagnosed with cervical cancer are between 35 to 55 years old and 20% older than 65. For this reason, it is important for women to continue cervical cancer screening until at least the age of 70. So, women should resort to time to time Pap screening.

Myth: Once detected with cervical cancer, the uterus is removed or/and it is difficult to bear children after cancer treatment

Fact: Cervical cancer treatment depends on the stage of cancer and whether it has spread to other parts of the body. As per the conventional treatment, if detected at an early stage, the cancerous growths can be removed with minor surgery. If the cancer spreads, radiotherapy or hysterectomy may be required. However, who have undergone both these procedures may not be able to conceive after the treatment. But with the immunotherapy being provided at Cancer Healer Center, the surgical procedures or radiations and chemotherapy are not required and once fully recovered with Cancer Healer Medicines the patient can conceive in a normal manner.
