Treatment of cervical cancer has to be multi-way therapy. Its not either Homeopathy or conventional treatment. The best long-term results are achieved by combination therapy depending on age, stage of cervical cancer and general health condition of patient. Conventional treatments like chemotherapy or radiation therapy helps in faster removal of cancer, Homeopathy can help in

  • Regression of cervical cancer
  • Prevention of recurrence of cervical cancer,
  • Removing side-effects of chemo and radiation therapy,
  • Relieving cancer pains
  • Improving general quality of life and hence, a better reaction to other treatments.

The speciality Homeopathic treatment for cervical cancer, developed at Welling Clinics can be very helpful for those suffering from cervical cancer.

Introduction of Cervical Cancer:-

  • Cervical cancer is a type of cancer that occurs in the cells of the cervix — the lower part of the uterus that connects to the vagina.
  • Various strains of the human papillomavirus (HPV), a sexually transmitted infection, play a role in causing most cases of cervical cancer.
  • Cervical cancer is a malignant neoplasm arising from cells originating in the cervix uteri.
  • One of the most common symptoms of cervicalcancer is abnormal vaginal bleeding, but in some cases there may be no obvious symptoms until the cancer has progressed to an advanced stage.
  • It is usually a slow-growing cancer that may not have symptoms but can be found with regular Pap tests (a procedure in which cells are scraped from the cervix and looked at under a microscope).
  • Cervical cancer is almost always caused by human papillomavirus (HPV) infection.
  • Estimated new cases and deathsfrom cervical (uterine cervix) cancer in the United States in 2013:
  • New cases: 12,340
  • Deaths: 4,030

Types of Cervical Cancer: – There are two main types of cervical cancer:

  • Squamous cell carcinomas: –Squamous cells are the flat skin like cells that cover the outer surface of the cervix (the ectocervix). This type of cervical cancer accounts for 80 to 90 percent of cervical cancers. Squamous cell cancer is the most common type of cervical cancer.
  • Adenocarcinoma: – It develops in the glandular cells that line the upper portion of the cervix. This type of cervical cancer accounts for 10 to 20 percent of cervical cancers. Adenomatous cells are gland cells that produce mucus. The cervix has these gland cells scattered inside of the passageway that runs from the cervix to the womb (the endocervical canal). Adenocarcinoma is a cancer of these gland cells. It is less common than Squamous cell carcinoma, but has become more common in recently. Between 1 in 10 and 1 in 20 cases of cervical cancer are Adenocarcinoma. It is treated in the same way as squamous cell cancer of the cervix.

Sometimes, both types of cells are involved in cervical cancer. Other types of cancer can develop in the cervix, but these are rare

  • Metastatic cervical cancer: – This type of cancerhas spread to other parts of the body. This is rare type of cervical cancer.

Basic Pathology of Cervical Cancer:-

TNM system for cervical cancer: – Cervical cancer is staged using the TNM system:

  • Tumor (T) describes the size of the original tumor.
  • Lymph Node (N) indicates whether the cancer is present in the lymph nodes.
  • Metastasis (M) refers to whether cancer has spread to other parts of the body, usually the liver, bones or brain.

Stages of cervical cancer are as follows:-

Stage 0:- In this stage, cancer cells are confined to the surface of the cervix (innermost lining of the cervix). This stage is also called carcinoma in situ (CIS) or cervical intraepithelial neoplasia (CIN). These abnormal cells may become cancer and spread into nearby normal tissue.

Stage I: – In this stage, the cancer has grown deeper into the cervix, but has not spread beyond it. This stage is further divided into two subcategories:

  • Stage IA:In this stage tumor is less than 5 mm deep and less than 7 mm wide, that can only be seen under a microscope.
  • Stage IB:The cancer can be seen and it measures 4 cm or less, or the cancer can only be seen under a microscope and measures more than 5 mm deep and 7 mm wide.

Stage II: – In this stage, cancer has grown beyond the cervix and uterus, but has not reached the walls of the pelvis or the lower part of the vagina. In this stage, the disease has not spread to lymph nodes or distant sites. Stage II is further divided into two subcategories:

  • Stage IIA: –The cancer has not spread into the tissues next to the cervix, the parametria, but it may have grown into the upper part of the vagina.
  • Stage IIB: –The cancer has spread into the tissues next to the cervix, the parametria.

Stage III: – In this stage, cancer has spread to the lower part of the vagina or the walls of the pelvis, but not to nearby lymph nodes or other parts of the body. This stage is separated into two categories:

  • Stage IIIA:In this stage, cancer has spread to the lower third of the vagina, but not to the walls of the pelvis.
  • Stage IIIB:In this stage, cancer has grown into the walls of the pelvis and/or has blocked both ureters, but has not spread to the lymph nodes or distant Or the cancer has spread to the lymph nodes in the pelvis, but not to distant sites.

Stage IV: – In this cervical cancer stage, the disease has spread to nearby organs or other parts of the body. Stage IV is divided into two categories:

  • Stage IVA:In this stage, cancer has spread to the bladder or rectum, but not to the lymph nodes or distant sites.
  • Stage IVB:The cancer has spread to organs beyond the pelvis, such as the lungs or liver.

Clinical Presentation of Cervical Cancer: – Patients with Cervical Cancer may face following symptoms:

  • Abnormal bleeding: – Women with cervical cancer may experienceabnormal vaginal bleeding. This can be heavy or light bleeding during the month.
  • Unusual heavy discharge: – An increased vaginal discharge is also a symptom of cervical cancer. It may be foul smelling, watery, thick, or contain mucus. It varies from woman to woman.
  • Pelvic pain:- Pelvic painthat is not related to the normal menstrual cycle can be a cervical cancer symptom. Many women describe them ranging from a dull ache to sharp pains that can last hours. It can be mild or severe.
  • Pain during urination: – Bladder pain or pain during urination can be a symptom of advanced cervical cancer. This cervical cancer symptom usually occurs when cancer has spread to the bladder.
  • Bleeding between regular menstrual periods, after sexual intercourse or pelvic examination: – Bleeding after sexual intercourse or pelvic examination can be cervical cancer symptoms. This is due to the irritation of the cervix during these activities. While a healthy cervix may have a very small amount of bleeding, many conditions may cause bleeding after activities like sex.

Signs of advanced stages of cervical cancer: – Cervical cancer may spread (metastasize) within the pelvis, to the lymph nodes or elsewhere in the body. Signs of advanced cervical cancer include:

Weight loss Leg pain or swelling
Fatigue Leakage of urine or feces from the vagina
Back pain Bone Fracture

Diagnosis of Cervical Cancer:-

To diagnose cervical cancer following tests are carried out:-

Pap smear:- In this test during a vaginal examination, collection of cells from cervix to look for abnormal, or precancerous, changes in the lining of cervix is carried out.

Colposcopy: – It is carried out when the Pap smear results are abnormal. This test is carried out by using a magnifying lens (colposcopy) and collect and examine cells (biopsy) to determine whether cancer is present or not.

Positron emission tomography (PET) scan: – This scan can detect the spread of cancer beyond cervix or to nearby lymph nodes.

Computed tomography (CT) scan: – CT scan can show whether cancer has spread or not.

Pyelogram: – It is carried out by injecting a special dye into vein and takes an X-ray of urinary system.

Treatment of Cervical Cancer:-

Cervical cancer treatment includes combination of treatments such as surgery, chemotherapy and radiation therapy.

Surgery: – Types of surgeries includes:

  • Cervical cone biopsy (conization):- A cone-shaped piece of cervical tissueby help of scalpel, to find out abnormalities.
  • Laser surgery: – A narrow beam of intense light is used to kill abnormal cells. It is usually perform to remove precancerous cells.
  • Cryosurgery:- This surgery will kills cancerous and precancerous cells by freezing them.
  • Hysterectomy:- Removal of uterus is called as hysterectomy. It includes:
  • Simple hysterectomy:- removal of cervix and uterus
  • Radical hysterectomy:-removes your cervix, uterus and surrounding tissue.
  • Lymphadenectomy: – removes the lymph nodes that drain the cervix.
  • Reconstructive surgery.Often used to treat advanced cases of cervical cancer, reconstruction may be necessary for your vagina, bladder, pelvic floor and parts of your pelvis.

Radiation therapy: – Radiation therapy is often the most effective treatment for cervical cancer at any stage of development.

Chemotherapy: – Chemotherapy uses anti-cancer drugs given intravenously or by mouth to destroy cancerous cells. Higher doses of chemotherapy are given when cancer has spread beyond the tumor or if your cancer returns after initial treatment. Studies show that low-dose chemotherapy, when combined with radiation therapy, improves survival rates in women who have advanced cervical cancer.
