Medical illustration showing Stage IIB of cervical cancer. This is an advanced stage of the cancer, with extension to the pelvic wall, as seen here. This stage can also result in hydronephrosis (non-functioning kidney). Symptoms of cervical cancer include bleeding between periods, pain after sexual intercourse and heavier periods. Cancer of the cervix is rare and if detected early is almost always cured.
