Women are uniquely at risk for cancer of the cervix 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.
