28 Year Old Mother Died Due To Uterus Cancer

Your health must be your first and main concern. For this reason, it is strongly recommended that you keep an eye on the signals sent by your body, indicating the presence of some very serious disorders or diseases. Cancer, for example, is one of the diseases that require early detection in order to increase the chances of recovery and reduce the risk of sequelae. In this article you will find the story of a young mother deceased following a late diagnosis of cancer of the uterus.

Amanda Booth, was a young mother of 3 children. After the appearance of some suspicious symptoms, his doctor asked him to perform a cervical examination. But she became frightened and refused to do so, continuing to ignore the signals sent by her body until she had had a hemorrhage that had revealed the presence of uterine tumors. Unfortunately, the chemotherapy sessions remained unsuccessful, due to the advanced stage of the disease (metastasis). She then loses her life, leaving behind her three little orphans.

Cancer of the uterus: a disease that hides

Cancer of the uterus is a silent disease and generally does not cause symptoms, especially in the early stages.

However, there are some symptoms that, once noticed, require immediate consultation like the:

Pain during intercourse: painful and uncomfortable intercourse, especially during penetration, may indicate that you are probably suffering from uterine cancer.

Bleeding out of the menstrual cycle: this is one of the most common symptoms, if your periods have always been normal, and you start to notice bleeding outside the menstrual cycle, it is important to consult your doctor.

Unusual or post-intercourse bleeding: the spread of the carcinogenic tumor around the cervix induces a more abundant amount of blood causing irregular bleeding as well as pain in the pelvis.

Pains in the urinary tract: A regular analysis of urine can be used as a diagnosis of cervical cancer. Urinary tract burns are not all the time related to bladder infections, but can be a symptom of cancer.

What are the risk factors for cervical cancer?

Cancer of the uterus results from an abnormal growth of the cells constituting the uterine tissue. The cause of this disease remains unknown, although several risk factors have been identified in women such as:

The appearance of the period before the age of 12

Early puberty reflects the transformations of gender characteristics before the age of 8 years. It may be due either to genetic variables, quality and lifestyle, diet, weight or other.

Late menopause (after age 55):

In normal women, menopause (permanent cessation of menstruation) usually occurs between the ages of 45 and 55 years, depending on the case. A period of 12 months can confirm the entry into this phase. However, there are several elements that can alter the age of menopause such as genetic factors related to the characteristics of the family but also tobacco.

The growth of the endometrium:

The endometrium is a mucous membrane covering the inner wall of the uterus. Its growth is caused by variations in hormone levels in each menstrual cycle. In fact, menstruation occurs when the endometrium detaches itself from the uterus.

How to diagnose uterine cancer?

You may need to perform several types of tests: pelvic exam, ultrasound, biopsy or all three combined.

Before deciding which test to take, ask your doctor for instructions and notes on the characteristics of each of these tests. As soon as you have the results of your examinations, a pathological analysis is carried out to determine the degree of the diagnosed tumor.

Moreover, it is important to get into the habit of doing an annual cytological examination as well as regular checkups of your genitalia. This will prevent cancer cells from developing and spreading in your body.
