As gynecologist Rosa Maria Leme says: “The appearance of small warts (external or internal) serves as a red flag for some diseases such as HPV, which greatly increases the chances of cervical cancer in women.”
PAIN OR BLEEDING
Pelvic discomfort and bleeding are also typical signs of cervical cancer because the walls of the cervix dry out and even crack due to the abnormal cell growth. Rectal or bladder bleeding can also occur though in the more advanced stages. Any bleeding outside your menstrual period requires immediate medical attention.
