Women are uniquely at risk for cancer of the cervix, as well as other parts of their reproductive system, and there are a number of risk factors to take into account when considering the likeliness of cervical cancer.
These include whether or not you've contracted HPV, if you eat a whole diet, have used birth control, have HIV, smoke cigarettes, or if it's just in you're genetics.
Here are some things to watch out for:
1. Pain in the legs
This may be a sign of early cervical cancer. Pain and swelling in the legs can be caused by obstructed blood flow.
2. Vaginal discharge
This is a sign of cervical cancer and about a zillion other potential health problems. See a doctor.
3. Unusual bleeding
This can sometimes be common, but if its recurring, it may be time to consult a physician, particularly if it's between menstrual periods.
