Survival Rates for Cervical Cancer, by Stage

CURE FOR CERVICAL CANCER.
MMCCF Team.

Survival Rates for Cervical Cancer, by Stage

Survival rates tell you what percentage of people with the same type and stage of cancer are still alive a certain amount of time (usually 5 years) after they were diagnosed. They can’t tell you how long you will live, but they may help give you a better understanding about how likely it is that your treatment will be successful. Some people will want to know the survival rates for their cancer, and some people won’t. If you don’t want to know, you don’t have to.

What is a 5-year survival rate?

Statistics on the outlook for a certain type of cancer are often given as 5-year survival rates. The 5-year survival rate is the percentage of people who live at least 5 years after being diagnosed with cancer. For example, a 5-year survival rate of 70% means that an estimated 70 out of 100 people who have that cancer are still alive 5 years after being diagnosed. Keep in mind, however, that many of these people live much longer than 5 years after diagnosis.

But remember, all survival rates are estimates – your outlook can vary based on a number of factors specific to you.

Cancer survival rates don’t tell the whole story

Survival rates are often based on previous outcomes of large numbers of people who had the disease, but they can’t predict what will happen in any particular person’s case. There are a number of limitations to remember:

The numbers below are among the most current available. But to get 5-year survival rates, doctors have to look at people who were treated at least 5 years ago. As treatments are improving over time, women who are now being diagnosed with cervical cancer may have a better outlook than these statistics show.
These statistics are based on when the cancer was first diagnosed. They do not apply to cancers that later come back or spread, for example.
The outlook for women with cervical cancer varies by the stage (extent) of the cancer – in general, the survival rates are higher for women with earlier stage cancers. But other factors can also affect a woman’s outlook, such as her age and overall health, and how well the cancer responds to treatment. The outlook for each woman is specific to her circumstances.
Your doctor can tell you how these numbers apply to you.

Survival rates for cervical cancer

The rates below were published in 2010 in the 7th edition of the AJCC staging manual. They are based on data collected by the National Cancer Data Base from people diagnosed between 2000 and 2002. These are the most recent statistics available for survival by the current staging system.

The 5-year survival rate for people with stage 0 cervical cancer is about 93%.
For stage IA cervical cancer, the 5-year survival rate is about 93% For stage IB cancer, the 5-year survival rate is about 80%.

For stage IIA cervical cancer, the 5-year survival rate is about 63%. For stage IIB cancer, the 5-year survival rate is about 58%.

The 5-year survival rate for stage IIIA cervical cancer is about 35%. For stage IIIB cancer, the 5-year survival rate is about 32%
Stage IVA cervical cancer has a 5-year survival rate of about 16%, and stage IVB cancer has a 5-year survival rate of about 15%. Still, there are often treatment options available for women with these stages of cancer.

Remember, these survival rates are only estimates – they can’t predict what will happen to any individual person. We understand that these statistics can be confusing and may lead you to have more questions.

Talk to your doctor to better understand your specific situation.

https://www.cancer.org/cancer/cervical-cancer/detection-diagnosis-staging/survival.html

cancer.org Survival rates are often used by doctors as a standard way of discussing a person's prognosis (outlook).

[07/03/17]   Cervical cancer is the second most common cancer amongst women in the world.

85% of cervical cancer diagnoses and 87% of cervical cancer deaths occur in under developed places like Africa and Latin America.Ghana is also not left out.

Cervical cancer has over the years increased and caused a lot of deaths than expected. Even with education going around the world, women are falling victims of this type of cancer.

With the rise of cervical cancer, a lot of solutions have come up in order to cure the problem and save our women. One of such solutions is introducing the anti HPV(Human Pappiloma Virus) which can be administered to women through vaccination.

This vaccination can be given to girls right from age 10 to 45years. Once one is immunized, you are free from cervical cancer. But the most effective is when given at a young age. While In Australia, the vaccination is given to males also, but it has not been applied in India yet.

With the education of cervical cancer, let us also know that cervical cancer is real.

Help save a life, help save a woman.

Cervical Cancer can be prevented. God bless you.

TOPIC: TREATMENT OF CERVICAL CANCER
SUB-TOPIC: SOURCES OF SUPPORT

Sources of Support

Learning that you have cervical cancer can change your life
and the lives of those close to you. These changes can be
hard to handle. It’s normal for you, your family, and your
friends to need help coping with the feelings that a diagnosis
of cancer can bring.

Concerns about treatments and managing side effects,
hospital stays, and medical bills are common. You may also
worry about caring for your family, keeping your job, or
continuing daily activities.

Here’s where you can go for support:
■ ■ Doctors, nurses, and other members of your health care
team can answer questions about treatment, working, or
other activities.

■ ■ Social workers, counselors, or members of the clergy
can be helpful if you want to talk about your feelings or
concerns. Often, social workers can suggest resources for
financial aid, transportation, home care, or emotional
support.

■ ■ Support groups also can help. In these groups, patients or
their family members meet with other patients or their
families to share what they have learned about coping
with cancer and the effects of treatment. Groups may
offer support in person, over the telephone, or on the
Internet. You may want to talk with a member of your
health care team about finding a support group.

MMCCF in Ghana(+233 246847493/+233 209365874),NCI’s Cancer Information Service can help you
locate programs, services, and NCI publications.
Call 1–800–4–CANCER (1–800–422–6237).
Or, chat using LiveHelp, NCI’s instant messaging
service, at http://www.cancer.gov/livehelp.

■ ■ Your doctor or a s*x counselor may be helpful if you and
your partner are concerned about the effects of cervical
cancer on your s*x life. Ask your doctor about possible
treatment of side effects and whether these effects
are likely to last. Whatever the outlook, you and your
partner may find it helps to discuss your concerns.

[11/11/15]   Monday 11th November,2015
TOPIC: TREATMENT OF CERVICAL CANCER
SUB-TOPIC: SECOND OPINION

Second Opinion
Before starting treatment, you might want a second opinion
about your diagnosis, stage of cancer, and treatment plan.
Some people worry that the doctor will be offended if they ask
for a second opinion. Usually the opposite is true. Most doctors
welcome a second opinion. And many health insurance
companies will pay for a second opinion if you or your doctor
requests it.

Some companies require a second opinion.
If you get a second opinion, the second doctor may agree
with your first doctor’s diagnosis and treatment plan. Or, the
second doctor may suggest another approach. Either way,
you have more information and perhaps a greater sense of
control.
You can feel more confident about the decisions you
make, knowing that you’ve looked at all of your options.
It may take some time and effort to gather your medical
records and see another doctor. In most cases, it’s not a
problem to take several weeks to get a second opinion. The
delay in starting treatment usually will not make treatment
less effective. To make sure, you should discuss this delay
with your doctor.
There are many ways to find a doctor for a second opinion.
You can ask your doctor, a local or state medical society, or a
nearby hospital or medical school for names of specialists.

Monday 9th November,2015
TOPIC: TREATMENT OF CERVICAL CANCER
SUB-TOPIC: CHEMOTHERAPY(What happens during Chemotheraphy and the kind of questions to ask the Health Team before the process begins)

Chemotherapy
Chemotherapy uses drugs to kill cancer cells. For the
treatment of cervical cancer, chemotherapy is usually
combined with radiation therapy. For cancer that has spread
to distant organs, chemotherapy may be used alone.
Most drugs for cervical cancer are given directly into a vein
(intravenously) through a thin needle. Some drugs can be
taken by mouth. Most women receive chemotherapy in a
clinic or at the doctor’s office. Drugs that are swallowed may
be taken at home instead. Some women need to stay in the
hospital during treatment.

The side effects depend mainly on which drugs are given and
how much. Chemotherapy kills fast-growing cancer cells,
but the drugs can also harm normal cells that divide rapidly:

■ ■ Blood cells:When chemotherapy lowers the levels of
healthy blood cells, you’re more likely to get infections,
bruise or bleed easily, and feel very weak and tired. Your
health care team will check for low levels of blood cells.
If the levels are low, your health care team may stop the
chemotherapy for a while or reduce the dose of drug.
They may also give you medicines that can help your
body make new blood cells.

■ ■ Cells in hair roots:Chemotherapy may cause hair loss. If
you lose your hair, it will grow back, but it may change in
color and texture.

■ ■ Cells that line the digestive tract:Chemotherapy can
cause a poor appetite, nausea and vomiting, diarrhea,
or mouth and lip sores. Your health care team can give
you medicines and suggest other ways to help with
these problems

Other side effects include skin rash, tingling or numbness
in your hands and feet, hearing problems, loss of balance,
joint pain, or swollen legs and feet. Your health care team
can suggest ways to control many of these problems. Most
go away when treatment ends.

You may want to ask the doctor these questions before
having chemotherapy:
■ ■ Why do I need this treatment?
■ ■ Which drug or drugs will I have?
■ ■ How do the drugs work?
■ ■ What are the expected benefits of the treatment?
■ ■ What are the risks and possible side effects of
treatment? What can we do about them?
■ ■ When will treatment start? When will it end?
■ ■ How will treatment affect my normal activities?

Thank you and enjoy a great day
