Ageing does not come alone. It has so many friends who accompany us for the rest of our lives. Unfortunately, they are never in favour. Each plays a part in our destruction, making us weaker and then weakest, with our delicate bodies facing so many deadly diseases. Cancer is the major one. Especially the cancers of the intimate parts. Women are left with this deadly cervix and other cancers in their most delicate phase of life. 

Definitely, they can be prevented when diagnosed early. Oncological Screening in Dubai, Abu Dhabi & Sharjah would be great to know what your body is going through!

What Are The Symptoms Of Gynecological Cancer?

  • Pain in the pelvic or feeling continuous pressure.
  • Rash, warts, sores or ulcers which cause changes in the skin or the vulva
  • Extreme pain in the back or in the stomach
  • If the vagina bleeds or discharges irregularly, like irregular periods or bleeding that is unfamiliar to you or if your vagina bleeds after you underwent the menopause period.
  • Frequent need to urinate, diarrhoea or constipation 
  • If the person feels itchiness in the vulva or a burning sensation.

Paying attention to how your body starts reacting or responding suddenly and what’s going inside is really important. Do not ignore even a slight change, and if something unusual continues to happen for two weeks or more, Do not delay getting yourself examined thoroughly. 

How Can We Lower The Risks Of Gynecological Cancers?

Ways to reduce the risks are to get yourself checked properly in consultation with the expert oncologists and then go through some tests to know what’s exactly happening inside.

These tests are efficient if they detect cancer in its early stages.

Get Vaccinated

Oh no, no, you are thinking absolutely wrong. We are not talking about getting a covid vaccine, but hundreds of other vaccines also protect us from several diseases. Here, the focused vaccine is the HPV vaccine that protects from the disease caused by HPV (Human Papillomavirus. The HPV vaccine is really helpful in preventing the following gynecological issues:

  • Vaginal Cancer
  • Cervical Cancer
  • Vulvar Cancer

HPV vaccination is allowed to be given to the children at 12 years, but it is recommended to get the children vaccinated at 9.

Screening Tests

Screening tests are conducted to look for an issue or a problem before symptoms of any indications are shown. Screening tests for cancer are really effective if the doctor successfully finds them in their early stages. This opens up several treatment options and opportunities for treating cancer efficiently and effectively. 

The Pap tests (pap smear) and HPV tests are the ones a patient must go for!

Pap Test

Pap test is conducted for only cervical cancer screening in women. In this pap smear test, the medical professional gathers the cells from the narrowed lower end of the uterus at the vagina’s top. The treatment may cause discomfort but works really effectively in screening precancerous and cancerous growths in the cervix. There is a greater chance of curing cancer if the test detects it in the earlier stages.

HPV Test

The HPV test is conducted for the screening for cervical cancer. The test tells the presence of human papillomavirus in the cervix that causes cervical cancer. Certain types of HPV increase the risk of cancer. The test is used for women aged 30 years or older. 

Biopsy

A biopsy is a process in which the oncologist removes or takes a tissue from the cervix which gets thoroughly examined in the laboratory to check the abnormal precancerous conditions in the cervix(lower-narrow part in the uterus). The doctor usually decides to conduct it after the HPV and the Pap smear test.

Colposcopy

It’s a straightforward way to examine the cervix thoroughly using a particular magnifying instrument called a colposcope. The oncologist directs the light in the vagina, particularly onto the cervix in an enlarged view. Colposcopy is another way to prevent cervical cancer. 

Scraping off the Abnormal Cells (Loop Electrosurgical Excision Procedure)

Irregular or abnormal cells from the cervix are scraped off from the cervix. For this purpose, the oncologist uses a tiny electrical wire loop to eliminate the cancerous cells from your cervix. This LEEP or Loop Electrosurgical Excision Procedure is a cervix cancer prevention technique done after these abnormal cancerous cells are found in the pap smear, colposcopy or biopsy test.

Oncological Screening Guidelines 

You have got the knowledge of screening tests for cancer prevention. Now here to know when to get those tests practically implemented in you. 

Uterine Cancer

When the women have entered their menopause phase, they must have the knowledge about the symptoms, risks and the screening of uterine cancer if they experience abnormal heavy bleeding or a discharge during the menopause.

Cervical Cancer

The patient should start screening as they step into their 20s. Women who age 21 years to 29 years should get a screening test every three years to prevent cervical cancer. 

Ovarian Cancer

Unfortunately, the technology does not benefit us here as there are no current screening tests for ovarian cancer. The doctor usually does a pelvic exam, but it isn’t practical as they cannot detect the cysts until they are huge.

Vulvar and Vaginal Cancer

The same case is for vaginal and vulvar cancer screening like ovarian cancer. Vaginal and vulvar cancer, too, have no screening available currently. You can do the one thing for prevention: a regular checkup through a pelvic exam.

Cost of Oncological Screening in Dubai 

The patient can expect to pay around 199 AED to 999 AED for Oncological screening. The cost varies in a specific range depending on various factors.
