What Is Cervical Cancer?
All cancers are named 1 of 2 ways: where they originate or the type of cells that formed the cancer, tumor or growth. Cervical cancer is named for where it began forming i.e. in the cervix. It can be purely genetic and form in young women that other cancers may not. The Human Papilloma Virus, HPV, is a very common cause of developing cancer of the cervix later in life. A Pap Smear, and if needed, a colposcopy are the main tests done to detect and diagnose cancer of the cervix.
What Leads To An Inaccurate Diagnosis Of Cervical Cancer
Studies show that there are 3 common reasons for the delayed or inaccurate diagnosis of cervical cancer:
- Clinician and or OBGYN error during specimen collection
- Cytopathology laboratory tech negligence in interpreting or reporting results
- Errors on the part of physicians in failing to recommend adequate follow-up testing on abnormal Pap smear results, not ordering colposcopy, etc.
What Is Cancer Of The Cervix Misdiagnosed As?
While cancer cells on the cervix are easy to see, and a thorough patient history offers much insight, an error or oversight in diagnosis it is rare. However clinicians performing pelvic exams for abnormal bleeding that can be confused with cervical cancer is a prolapsed uterine fibroid. In this situation a large mass is seen on pelvic exam coming from the cervix. Again a biopsy if the diagnosis is uncertain will provide clarity.
