Hello Mesri, thank you for the question.
We are also sorry for what happened to your mother. Based on the results of your mother's cervical biopsy, from cell examination using a microscope, it appears that there is a malignancy in your mother's cervix. That is, found cancer cells in the cervix. The type is carcinoma, with the type of squamous cells that produce keratin. These cancer cells undergo mutations, from what was originally a normal cervical mucosal cell, then becomes a malignant cancer cell. Invasive, meaning that it damages the surrounding normal cells. This cancer is generally caused by a human papilloma virus (HPV) infection. Cervical cancer is commonly found in menopausal women who have experienced sexual relations.
You and your family should bring the results of this biopsy back to the treating doctor. The doctor will do a match between the biopsy results, patient complaints, patient conditions, and physical examination findings. Consult carefully and thoroughly. Don't depend on our explanation, because we don't know your mother's current condition. The doctor will explain about the stage of cancer experienced. Generally, the earlier the stage of cancer, the more likely it is to cure. Of course healing is different for each individual. The doctor will determine what type of therapy will be given. Is chemotherapy, radiotherapy, immunotherapy, and so on. Follow the doctor's advice and discuss with family thoroughly.
Make sure your mother gets enough nutrition and water. Try to keep the volume of water you drink 2 L per day. If there is nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, give food and drink slowly, a little but often. Choose foods that are easy to chew and easy to digest. Avoid foods with odors and flavors that trigger nausea. If your mother lies down more, turn to the right and left every 2 hours, so as not to pressure sores. Use disposable bedding on mattresses and adult diapers, if your mother has difficulty walking to the bathroom. Wash your mother's skin with clean warm water, at least 2 times a day. Encourage your mother to get well soon.
Thus the brief information that I can give. May your mother get a perfect recovery. Regards.
