Symptoms of Cervical Cancer

Some patients may be asymptomatic, while some may have the following symptoms:

  • Irregular vaginal bleeding between menstrual periods.
  • Vaginal bleeding for postmenopausal women who no longer have menstrual periods.
  • Vaginal bleeding after sex.
  • Painful feeling during sex.
  • Unusual vaginal discharge, foul smelling or tinged with blood.
  • Symptoms of advanced cervical cancer can include: back or pelvic pain, swelling of one or both legs, difficulty urinating or defecating, fatigue, weight loss.
    If you experience any of the symptoms above, it does not mean that you have cervical cancer as they could be symptoms of other common and benign conditions as well.
