Pelvic, Back, or Leg Pain
Pelvic pain could be an indicator of changes to the cervix, but advanced cervical cancer can even spread to the bladder, intestines, or even the lungs and liver. The pain or pressure can be felt anywhere in the abdomen below the navel. Many women describe the pelvic pain as a dull ache that may include sharp pains as well. Pain may be intermittent or constant and is typically worse during or after intercourse.
Then you might have things like back pain or leg pain. Back pain may be caused by the pressure of an enlarging tumor on your spine or nerves. Swelling in one or both legs can occur if the tumor puts pressure on the lymph nodes or on the veins, causing a backup of blood and fluid in the vessels of the legs. Swelling may occur quickly over the course of just a few days.
