Cervical cancer is the third most common type of cancer in world-wide. It is more common in United States because of Pap Smears. A cancer which start in cervix, the lower part of womb which opens at the top of vagina.

In Cervical Cancer, abnormal mass of tissues results in neoplasia in which tumor become worse and results in death. They start in the cell on surface of cervix. There are mostly two types of cells are on cervix: squamous and columnar.Mostly cervical cancer arises in squamous cells.

Cervical cancer progress very slowly. This condition called dysplasia. This condition can be detected by Pap smear and because of that the cases of cervical cancer becomes down since last 10-20 years.

Five Tips for a More Comfortable MRI Experience

The purpose of my MRI was to determine the extent of my uterine cancer prior to surgery. Regardless of the reason why you need an MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging) test, following these six tips will definitely make your experience more comfortable. I wish that I had known them before my own MRI.

1. Bring Your Own Music.

The MRI is incredibly loud and noisy! At various times, it sounds like a jackhammer is drilling right next to your head, a truck is backing up (next to your head), a car is having major difficulty starting, or you are going through a car wash without the benefit of a car!

Because of the noise, you are given earphones and offered a choice of music. I requested calm, lyrical classical music. The music I got was better suited to a parade than a nap. It wasn't exactly Beethoven's 9th Symphony, but it was just as energetic. This must was definitely not conducive to relaxation. When I complained, they gave me classical piano music, which was also much too vigorous.

My final choice was to have no music. However, in the future, should I ever need another MRI, I plan to bring my own CD!

2. Take a Sedative.

Regardless of the body part being scanned, your entire body will have to go into the tubular MRI. A sedative is a good idea, even if you're not claustrophobic. It is probably quite difficult to lie perfectly still for 40-60 minutes without a sedative!

3. Cover Your Eyes.

I had planned to keep my eyes closed the entire time (which I did). As an added precaution, they gave me a dry washcloth to put over my eyes- just in case I might inadvertently open my eyes. My advice- keep your eyes closed and take the washcloth as an added protection!

4. Bring Warm Socks.

The room was very cold, so I asked for two blankets. Even wearing my own socks and covered by the blankets, my feet were icy cold. So another good idea is to bring or wear some very warm socks!

5. Schedule for the Beginning of the Week.

My MRI was on a Friday before a three-day weekend, so I had to wait even longer for the radiologist to review and post the results of my test. If you have a choice, schedule your MRI for the beginning of the week. That way, you greatly increase the probability that you will get the results before the end of the week.

The stress of having to wait probably explained my continual post-MRI craving for chocolate and carbohydrates! You may give in to the same cravings, but you'll learn what I discovered- that nothing you eat will really satisfy and fill that empty anxious place.

If you're lucky, your MRI staff will be competent, courteous and caring. My MRI staff certainly were. And if you take some of these suggestions to heart, your MRI experience should be as comfortable as possible.
