Understanding Cervical Cancer: Overview, Diagnosis, and Treatment


    Screening: Cervical cancer is often detected through screening tests such as Pap smears or HPV tests. These tests can detect abnormal changes in cervical cells before cancer develops.

    Diagnostic tests: If abnormalities are found during screening, further diagnostic tests may be performed, including colposcopy, biopsy, imaging tests (such as MRI or CT scan), and sometimes genetic testing.


    Surgery: Surgical options for the disease may include removal of the abnormal cells (LEEP procedure), cone biopsy, hysterectomy, or lymph node removal.
    Radiation therapy: This treatment uses high-energy X-rays or other particles to destroy cancer cells.
    Chemotherapy: Drugs are used to kill cancer cells or stop them from growing.
    Targeted therapy: This treatment targets specific molecules involved in cancer cell growth.
    Immunotherapy: These drugs help the immune system fight cancer cells.



    Gynecologist: A gynecologist may perform screening tests and initial evaluations for cervical cancer.
    Gynecologic oncologist: This specialized doctor focuses on diagnosing and treating cancers of the female reproductive system, including cervical cancer.
    Radiation oncologist: A doctor who specializes in using radiation therapy to treat cancer.
    Medical oncologist: A doctor who specializes in using chemotherapy and other medications to treat cancer.
    Pathologist: A doctor who examines tissue samples to diagnose diseases, including cervical cancer.

    4-Family involvement

    Caregiving: Family members may assist the patient with daily tasks during treatment and recovery.
