How long does a woman have to live when she is diagnosed with an advanced state of human papilloma virus (HPV)

by Rachel on May 11, 2010

I have a parent who has been diagnosed with the disease. She is already showing signs of tumors, and she is pregnant and cancer-positive (cervical cancer). Please respond quickly.

HPV does not kill, but the cancers it causes can.

There is no way to answer this with that little info. Plus, nobody could really tell you over the internet anyhow.

Her life span will depend upon the stage her cancer is, and the pregnancy. Some treatments can’t be used when a woman is pregnant because of the danger to the baby.

Only her doctor will be able to give you the prognosis. God bless.

It really depends on how long she has had cervical cancer and how much it has progressed. If cervical cancer is caught early enough, it can be removed, or can be treated with chemotherapy. Some women even get a hysterectomy done. Even though they will never have children again it’s better then dying!

I developed cervical cancer from my HPV a few years ago, however, I caught mine early enough where I was able to have it removed and luckily it hasn’t come back!

Since everyone is different and each cervical cancer patient’s case is different it’s really hard to estimate how long she has to live. Only her doctor would be able to determine how severe her case is how long they think she’ll live.

IF THEY CATCH EARLY THEN THEY ARE OK, SOMETINE HPV ARE NOT CANCEROUS, AND SOME ARE FINE OUT FROM THE DR..IF YOU ARE not satisfy with him get another opinion
