      As an assistant nurse for OB-Gyne department, I have dealt with cervical cancer patients or those who suspect that they have. Most of these women claim to have unusual vaginal discharge but most of them have benign cases. I advice women who might have been experiencing the same issue to consult their doctor first to determine the cause and to have peace of mind.

      First question is, how is abnormal discharge treated? For this cure, try to keep the vagina always clean by washing with a gentle, warm water and mild soap on the outside. Go to your doctor, the doctor may take a sample of the discharge or do a Pap test to collect cells from your cervix for further examination.

      Often, one or more diagnostic procedures for abnormal discharge, such as medical tests, are also done during the process.

      The specialist will begin by asking a health history and questioning about your sufferings. Questions may include:

      When did the abnormal discharge begin?
      What colour is the discharge?
      Is there any smell?
      Do you have any itching, pain, or burning in or around the vagina?
      Do you have more than one sexual partner?
      Do you douche?

      So give him/her correct answers to decide for proper treatment.

      As from my understanding with cervical cancer, you may notice discharge that is foul-smelling and pink, brown or bloody in colour. Sometimes, the discharge may include chunks of tissue or necrotic material as a result of infection of the tumours, creating a foul smelling vaginal discharge.

      The first identifiable symptoms of cervical cancer are likely to include: Abnormal vaginal bleeding, such as after intercourse, between menstrual periods, or after menopause; menstrual periods may be heavier and last longer than normal. Pain during intercourse. Vaginal discharge and odor.
