There are several mild problems which are possible with the uterus, and endometriosis is the first we will mention. Women at the age of thirty or forty who have never had a child, usually suffer from this condition that affects the endometrial tissue and then it grows in the outskirts of the uterus. It can affect the surrounding organs, and the problems created by this condition include loss of fertility, vaginal bleeding and problems with menstrual periods. Fibrosis is another condition created in the muscles of the uterus. This condition cannot grow into the cancer, and it reduces after the menopause and sometimes even disappears. The problems that this condition can create include vaginal discharge, constant urination and bleeding, as well as the pressure on the organs around, thus producing the pain which can only be eliminated with a professional help. Endometrial hyperplasia is connected with the multiplying of the cells found in the lining of the uterus, and the problems with bleeding after the menopause are some of the most common problems this condition creates. Although it is not a cancer, in some cases it can develop into one, and sometimes the cancer can affect the area outside the uterus. When this happens, blood vessels, lymph nodes and even liver, bones and lungs can be affected. When it spreads, the cancer cells from the original location are found in other locations, meaning that, if the uterus cancer expands to the lungs, the lungs will be full of uterine cancer cells. Because of thisthe conducted treatment will be the one for uterine cancer and not the lung cancer.
Lining of the uterus is the most common location for the creation of cancer. Problems experienced by this condition include pain during intercourse, strange vaginal bleeding, problems with urination and pelvic area pain. If a woman is experiencing some of the stated problems medical attention is needed. But do not be afraid, since these problems can also be caused by some benign condition. However, it is better to be on the safe side. When you visit a doctor, he will perform several things in order to come with the diagnosis. Some of them are pelvic exam (speculum is used in order to detect limps) transvaginal ultrasound (uses an instrument which emits ultrasounds), Pap test (takes cells from the upper vagina and cervix) and biopsy in which a part of the tissue of the uterine lining is taken for examination.
