There are several mild problems which are possible with the uterus, and endometriosisis the first we will mention. Women at the age of thirty or forty who havenever had a child, usually suffer from this condition that affects theendometrial tissue and then it grows in the outskirts of the uterus. It can affectthe surrounding organs, and the problems created by this condition include lossof fertility, vaginal bleeding and problems with menstrual periods. Fibrosis isanother condition created in the muscles of the uterus. This condition cannotgrow into the cancer, and it reduces after the menopause and sometimes evendisappears. The problems that this condition can create include vaginaldischarge, constant urination and bleeding, as well as the pressure on theorgans around, thus producing the pain which can only be eliminated with aprofessional help. Endometrial hyperplasia is connected with the multiplying ofthe cells found in the lining of the uterus, and the problems with bleedingafter the menopause are some of the most common problems this conditioncreates. 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 thishappens, blood vessels, lymph nodes and even liver, bones and lungs can beaffected. When it spreads, the cancer cells from the original location arefound in other locations, meaning that, if the uterus cancer expands to thelungs, the lungs will be full of uterine cancer cells. Because of thisthe conductedtreatment will be the one for uterine cancer and not the lung cancer.
Lining of the uterus is the most common location for the creationof cancer. Problems experienced by this condition include pain duringintercourse, strange vaginal bleeding, problems with urination and pelvic areapain. If a woman is experiencing some of the stated problems medical attentionis needed. But do not be afraid, since these problems can also be caused bysome benign condition. However, it is better to be on the safe side. When youvisit 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 ofthe tissue of the uterine lining is taken for examination.
