Many women are embarrassed to go to the gynecologist because they are uncomfortable with the examination. There are also many other reasons. Why are you postponing a preventive survey?
Splashes from one’s own body, intimate aspect, fear of smell
New research results from the British company Jo’s Cervical Cancer Trust have shown that 35 percent of young women reject important tests due to embarrassment of their own body and shape.
Thirty-four percent of young women are avoiding sightings because of their intimate looks and 38 percent because of fears of how to smell. In some women’s cases, these fears are overlapping.
The problem is that because of such banality, uterine cervical cancer can develop unnoticed without knowing it.
The sooner the better
No examination is pleasant, but if it is health, we should overcome it. PAP tests – cytology that can detect cancer cells in the uterine cervix are part of a preventive survey that every woman from the age of 18 should graduate once a year.
The incidence of cervical cancer is not negligible, of course, it is true – the sooner it is detected, the easier it is to treat, and vice versa.
What are the symptoms?
Regular checking, despite concerns about examination or shyness, is also important because the symptoms of cancer are often known only in more developed phases.
The most common symptoms include leg pain, vaginal discharge, unusual bleeding between menstruation, an unpleasant feeling of urination but also irregular urination.
In many cases, there is an irregular cycle, an unpleasant feeling during sexual intercourse. Other symptoms may include pelvic pain, backache and unexplained weight loss.
According to foreign experts, it is necessary to have the cervix checked – letting you do cytology at least every two or three years until the age of 65.
They also point out that young women should be prepared by mothers for the need for gynecological examinations so that the gynecologist is not eternal fear and sexually taboo topic.
Maybe you do not know that cervical cancer is the third most common gynecological cancer in our country. Every year about 230 women die.
Most often in the mature age
The majority of women suffering from cervical cancer are between 40 and 55 years of age. The cause of cervical cancer is up to 99.6 percent of HPV cases. If steros showed changed cells, followed by another three to six months, colposcopic examination, and HPV virus test.
If the changed cells do not disappear, they need to be removed. Do not worry about your results always directly and consult the doctor in detail.
