Cancer is one of the world main killers for people all over the world. Around 265,000 women are estimated to have died from cervical cancer in 2012. In order to recognize cervical cancer on time, women should consider some of the risk factors below. Here are some things to watch out for:

1. Vaginal discharge
This is a sign of cervical cancer and about a zillion other potential health problems. See a doctor.

2. Unusual bleeding
This can sometimes be common, but if its recurring, it may be time to consult a physician, particularly if it’s between menstrual periods.

3. Pain in the legs
This may be a sign of early cervical cancer. Pain and swelling in the legs can be caused by obstructed blood flow.

4. Discomfort when urinating
This can reveal cervical cancer in several ways. You may experience burning, stinging, or a tight sensation. This is another symptom to see a doctor about either way.

5. Irregular urination
This is something that can be hard to keep track of, but you’ll know it when you see it. Bladder control is the primary issue here. Not being able to control your bladder is a sign of cervical cancer. Especially if it’s coupled with blood in the urine.

6. Irregular menstrual cycles
This can be a sign of any number of things too and something worth discussing with your OBGYN. It can also be a sign that you’re at a much higher risk for cancer and will require regular screenings.

7. Sex is uncomfortable
Sometimes painful when cervical cancer has taken hold. There are several reasons it could be difficult. Something else to chat with your physician about.

8. Pain in the pelvis
This can be a sign of tumors, though cramping in that area can also just be menstruation.
