      I was diagnosed with stage 3C cervical cancer at age 26. I went through 6 months of pretty significant pain in my back, bleeding with intercourse and spotting. It took me 9 different Doctors to find the diagnosis.

          The lower portion of the uterus (womb) called the cervix, which links to the vagina, is where the cells of cervical cancer, also known as cervical cancer, originate. The human papillomavirus (HPV), a sexually transmitted infection, is the primary cause of the majority of occurrences of cervical cancer.

            Cervical cancer (also known as cervix cancer or cervix uteri cancer) is a common type of cancer that starts in the cervix. There are many risk factors, including the development of a pre-cancerous change called a cervical intraepithelial neoplasia (also called cervical intraepithelial lesion or CIN) and other conditions. These factors can increase your risk of cervical cancer. Some people may also be genetically more likely to develop this cancer.

            A cervix is the lower part of the uterus (womb). It is the narrow channel between the uterus and the bladder. The cervix changes from a short, narrow structure in a woman’s body, known as the closed endocervix, to a wider and longer structure as the woman’s body gets older. A cervix may also grow out into the vagina. Cervical cancer often begins in the cervix or other areas around the cervix.

            Doctors don’t know exactly how cervical cancer develops. However, they believe that changes in the cells (proliferation) in the cervix, the immune system, or both may play a role. Factors that may increase your risk of developing cervical cancer include:

            Having more than one sexual partner

            A cervical intraepithelial neoplasia (CIN)

            An HPV infection

            An HPV type 16 or 18 (human papilloma virus, or HPV) infection, which is the most common type of HPV

            Having multiple sex partners while pregnant


            Early childbirth

            Having sex at a young age



            Certain types of immune system problems

            Having a weakened immune system

            Women with certain immune system problems who are treated with drugs or radiation after their cancer is diagnosed may be at higher risk for developing recurrent cervical cancer (cancer
