Cervical Cancer is one of the most common cancers that Singaporean women are afflicted with, and what is frightening about this disease is that there can be few or no symptoms at the early stages of cervical cancer, making it difficult to detect.
In the later stage of cervical cancer, symptoms could include:
1) Abnormal bleeding inbetween periods
2) Abnormal bleeding after menopause
3) Abnormal bleeding during intercourse
4) Watery or Bloody Vaginal Discharge
5) Lower Abdominal Pain during Intercourse
Cervical cancer is a disease in which cells in the cervix grow abnormally and almost all cervical cancers are caused by a virus called HPV, a common virus that is typically spread through sexual activity. It is estimated that at least 80% of all women will get infected by HPV at least once in their lifetime. In the event that our body is unable to clear the virus and the HPV stays in our cervix, there is potential that it would become cervical cancer.
