In the early stages, cervical cancer usually has no symptoms, which makes it difficult to detect. Symptoms usually begin after the cancer has spread.
When early stage cervical cancer symptoms appear, they may be of the following types:
- vaginal bleeding after intercourse;
- Watery, bloody vaginal discharge, which may be accompanied by a heavy and unpleasant odor;
- Pelvic pain or pain during intercourse.
Advanced symptoms of cervical cancer are:
- Bleeding from the rectum with a bowel movement;
- Difficult or painful urination or blood in the urine;
- back pain
- Swelling of the leg
- Feeling tired.
