Article Excerpts About Symptoms of Cervical Cancer:
There are no real symptoms of the early stages of cervical cancer. That
is why is it is so important that your doctor does a series of tests
regularly to look for it. The first of these is a Pap smear, which is done
by using a piece of cotton, a brush, or a small wooden stick to gently
scrape the outside of the cervix to pick up some cells that can be
examined under a microscope. You may feel some pressure, but you usually
do not feel pain. Most cervical cancers can be caught early with regular
screening. (Source: excerpt from Cervical Cancer: NWHIC)
