Cervical Cancer

Cervical Cancer is cancer that develops in a woman’s cervix (the neck of the womb). Early stages of cervical cancer don’t usually cause symptoms. That’s why regular cervical smear tests are so important. This test looks for changes in the cells of the cervix that could lead to cancer. Spotting these changes early can lead to effective treatment starting sooner.

Our aim is to support and guide patients through whatever care they need, including:

  • Screening*
  • Investigations and diagnosis
  • Surgery to remove cancer
  • Radiotherapy
  • Anti-cancer drugs.

Common symptoms of cervical cancer include:

  • Unusual discharge or bleeding
  • Pain or bleeding during or after sex
  • Pain in the pelvis area

When to come to us?

There are a number of initial tests needed to diagnose cervical cancer. These start with:

  • Discussing symptoms and medical history
  • A physical examination and smear test
  • Scans, such as an MRI, CT, PET

If these tests suggest you may have cervical cancer, your consultant will probably recommend a colposcopy and biopsy. This will allow a sample of cervical tissue to be sent for examination under a microscope.

If you are diagnosed with cervical cancer, you will have immediate access to world-class specialists and state of the art facilities.

We treat every patient on an individual basis. You will have the option to choose what you want, where and when. Our aim is to give everyone the best possible results.

Your consultant will work closely with other specialists in the multidisciplinary team to design a treatment plan for you.

The treatment of cervical cancer depends on the type of cancer, how advanced it is and whether it has spread, as well as a patient’s age and general health. Generally, an operation is recommended to remove the cancer. Chemotherapy and radiotherapy may also be considered if the cancer may, or has already, spread.
