STAGES OF CERVICAL CANCER
Stages of Cervical Cancer


Most cervical cancers begin with changes in the cells that line the cervix. These cells do not just suddenly become cancerous. Rather they gradually make pre-cancerous changes that later turn into cancer. Clinicians use various terms to describe these pre-cancerous changes including cervical intraepithelial neoplasia (CIN) and cervical dysplasia. CIN affects nearly 50,000 American women a year. Some women with CIN will develop cancer while for others it will not. There is no way to predict if cancer will occur or in what time frame it may do so.

CIN PRECANCER STAGE


High Grade CIN3

Without treatment 30 to 50 percent of CIN3 cases turn into cancer. The risk is much lower for milder dysplasia. The next stage after CIN3 is cervical cancer.



Normal Cells and CIN (Dysplasia) Cells


ADVANCED CERVICAL CANCER


Advanced Stage of Cervical Cancer

Cervical cancer that has spread to the rectum or bladder is associated with a 16 percent survival rate.


PELVIC EXAMINATION


Routine Checkup: Pelvic examination and Pap test screening will help prevent cervical cancer.
