What Is The Difference Between Cervical Cancer And Uterine Cancer?
good morning doctor, I want to ask the difference between cervical cancer and cervical cancer, what causes it, and what should be done after the surgical removal of cervical and uterine cancer tks.
Cervical cancer is a malignant tumor that attacks the cervix. Cervical cancer is usually affected by sexual activity that often changes partners and does not use protection such as condoms. Cervical cancer is usually characterized by bleeding, pain during intercourse, excessive vaginal discharge, and odor.
Cervical cancer can be detected by examination of fluid in the cervix, detected by an examination called IVA (visual inspection with acetic acid) and Pap smear (examination using a microscope). IVA is examined with an acid solution. For more information about cervical cancer, there are articles that can be read later at the following link:
Uterine cancer is a malignant tumor that occurs in the lining of the uterine wall called the endometrial lining. Cervical cancer is usually characterized by early symptoms such as irregular menstrual frequencies, abnormal amounts of menstrual blood, pain during menstruation and so on. For information about cervical cancer, can be read through the following link:
For further and more complete examinations, further consultations with obstetricians will be carried out in the form of blood tests, examination of cervical fluid and uterine lining, ultrasound examination of the uterus and so on.
Prevention that can be done at home is:
- Maintain the cleanliness of the genital area
-Keep the genital area dry and not moist
-not washing the genital area with betel soap and so on
-not having sexual relations by changing partners
- use a condom if you have sex more than one partner
Thank you :)
