Cervical Cancer Misdiagnosis

You might be surprised to learn cervical cancer is rare, given that the NHS offers all women over 25 free screening and it’s a very well-publicised cancer. However, even so, sadly this is a commonly misdiagnosed form of cancer as it has almost no symptoms in the early stages. Symptoms in more advanced cases include vaginal bleeding, especially after patients have experienced the menopause; constipation, loss of bladder control, swelling in one of the legs, kidney pain – often severe; bowel and bladder habit changes, loss of appetite, weight loss and tiredness. These symptoms usually occur if the cancer is more advanced, and some of them, particularly bleeding, can lead to the condition being mistaken for chlamydia. Screening can help identify cervical cancer and treatment usually involves surgery to remove the womb, or sections of it, and radiotherapy. For more advanced cases, chemotherapy is needed.
