Malignant tumors of the uterus are the most common cancers of the female genital organs. Distinguish between cervical cancer and endometrial cancer.
Both types of tumors come from different types of tissue in each case and differ in the possibility of early detection, symptoms, prevention, diagnosis and treatment.
Malignant tumors of the cervix, also called cervical cancer, usually develop from the squamous epithelium in the area of the outer part of the cervix. They occur predominantly in the transition zone (transformation zone) of the uterine mucosa to the squamous epithelium of the vagina. In rare cases, cervical cancer also arises from the cells of the mucous membrane of the uterine pharynx. In this case, we speak of adenocarcinoma.
Tissue malignancy is a long process, over many years, and is often caused by certain types of viruses. Since the cervical os is easily accessible for examination, with regular examinations, early detection of altered cells and treatment of precancerous stages of cervical disease is possible.
The incidence varies with age. Women aged 40-59 are especially often affected. The second rise in incidence occurs after 60 years. Precancerous and early stages of cervical cancer are mainly found in women aged 20-40 years.
Over the past 30 years, diagnoses with advanced stages of the disease, as well as the number of deaths, have significantly decreased, especially with the competent treatment that our clinics in Germany provide. Our techniques allow early recognition and successful treatment of precancerous and early stages of cancer.
