He cervical canceris a frequent type of cancer among young women and in practically 100%, it is derived from human papilloma virus (HPV).

This type of cancer is manifested by the presence of malignant (cancerous) cells in the tissues of the cervix, which is located in the lower part of the uterus and communicates with the vagina.

Despite the above information, this cancer forms slowly, as the cells of the cervix undergo mutations (dysplasia) until abnormal cells appear in the tissue. Eventually, the abnormal cells become cancerous, multiply, and spread throughout the cervix and surrounding areas.

Types of Cervical Cancer

The cervical cancers and the most common pre-cancers are:

  • Squamous cell carcinoma : It is the most common type of cervical cancer, detected in 90% of cases. It develops from premalignant lesions of the lining of the outer surface of the neck, which is made up of many layers of squamous cells (squamous epithelium), and its malignancy leads to squamous-type cancers.
  • Adenocarcinoma: less frequently the epithelium (the most exposed layer of the cervix), which lines the inside of the cervical canal, made up of a single layer of glandular or mucus-producing cells, becomes malignant and causes glandular cell cancers or adenocarcinoma .
  • Malignant tumors: although they are not considered cancer as such, these growths are developed from other types of cells (muscle, blood vessels, stroma, hormone-producing or melanin-producing cells) and give rise to sarcomas, neuroendocrine carcinomas, melanomas, etc. The metastases in the neck of the uterus (growth of tumors originating from another organ) are extremely rare.

What is 3B cervical cancer?

It is defined in this way stage 3 cervical cancer. To classify the grade of each cancer, it is generally divided into 4 phases or stages, and this determines the quality of life that the patient suffering from such a disease can continue to have.

Stage III cervical cancer means that the cancer has spread to the lower third of the vagina or pelvic wall, resulting in kidney or lymph node problems.

Stage III divides itself into stages, or stages IIIA, IIIB, and IIIC, based on how far the cancer has spread.

Cervical cancer stages 3B or IIIB

  • Stage I: It is a cancerous microtumor, not visible to the naked eye, and for its diagnosis requires a microscopic by means of a biopsy; this phase can also mean that the tumor is visible to the naked eye and is located in the neck of the uterus.
  • Stage II: It is the tumor that has already spread through the cervix and affects neighboring organs such as ligaments or the vagina.
  • Stage III: the tumor has extended to involve the lower part of the vagina or the wall of the pelvis.
  • Stage IV: the tumor involves the inner part of the bladder or rectum or metastasizes to distant organs, such as the kidneys.
