#9 Abnormal Bleeding
If you or a loved one experience abnormal vaginal bleeding, it could be an early sign of cervical cancer. Bleeding and spotting between menstrual cycles, having a longer or heavier menstrual period than usual, bleeding after sex or vaginal intercourse, bleeding even after menopause, bleeding after going to the bathroom and bleeding after a pelvic exam are signs of cervical cancer.
It is advisable, at this stage, to inform your gynecologist of the abnormal bleeding. It is possible for an infection to be causing said bleeding, however a visit to the doctor is imperative as a preventive measure. If it is cancer, ignoring symptoms might allow it to progress to a more advanced stage and lower your chance for effective treatment.
