Cervical Cancer Treatment in India
What Is Cervical Cancer?
Cervical cancer begins with a narrow opening in the uterus from the vagina known as the cervix. This cancer is considered as the most common cancer that develops in the cervix of a woman. Cervical cancer usually occurs during the midlife. Most women who are diagnosed with this cancer are in between 35-55 years of age. This cancer has mostly diagnosed in around 20% of women who are older than 65. Women who are under 20 rarely suffer from this cancer.

Types of Cervical Cancer
The type of cervical cancer is determined by the type of cell where the early genetic mutation occurred. The type also helps in determining the specific treatment for a patient. There are two main types of cervical cancer that include -

Adenocarcinomas: This type takes place in the glandular cells lining the cervical canal. Adenocarcinomas account for a smaller portion of all cervical cancers. Squamous Cell Carcinomas: This type starts in the flat and thin cells lining the bottom of the cervix. Squamous cell carcinomas make up for a large majority of cervical cancers.
Small cell carcinomas, adenosquamous carcinomas, and clear cell carcinomas are considered as the less common types of cervical cancer.

Causes of Cervical cancer
Human Papillomavirus (HPV) is considered the most common cause of cervical cancer. This virus can easily transmit to another person by having sexual contact with an HPV person. The HPV virus has a number of types but not every type of HPV can cause cervical cancer. Genital warts may be caused by them and also these different types also do not result in any symptoms.

The immune system of the body helps in fighting many infections. Some diseases and medications can diminish the immune system that increases the chance of HPV infections, thus also increasing the chances of developing cervical cancer. Smoking is yet another cause that increases the chance of cervical cancer. Environmental tobacco smoke and tobacco smoking are connected with the development of cervical cancer.
