Causes of cervical cancer

Cervical cancer happens when malignant cells grow in the cervix which is the connecting path between the uterus and the vagina and helps in menstrual flow, transporting sperm from vagina through mucus discharge and also remains sealed during pregnancy opening up only when the baby is ready to give birth to.
Sad thing about cervical cancer is that it remain un noticed until it reaches it last stage or advanced stage.

Symptoms of cervical cancer

Abnormal vaginal bleeding, unusual heavy discharge, pain during urination, pelvic pain, bleeding after sexual intercourse and during menstrual periods. It is not necessary that these symptoms will lead to cervical cancer only but these do indicate some problem therefore it is advised that one must immediately go for medical check up.

How cervical cancer begins

It begins with growth of malignant cells on the cervix surface which eventually spread to the surrounding organs .Therefore when a woman experience bleeding or pain it can be because of the cancer which is spreading to multiple organs.

Best way to avoid this type of cancer is to follow a healthy life style and avoid unhealthy habits like smoking .Include fruit especially papaya which control the incidence of cancer to a large extent as it contains essential vitamins which are cancer preventive.
We all deserve to be  beautiful and healthy but for that we need to take the initiatives by our self
