It is impossible to say how long any individual person will live with any type of cancer. In general, however, the more advanced the stage of cancer at the time of diagnosis, the less time one would have to live.
If you believe that you (or someone else who is close to you) have cervical cancer, and you (or they) are thinking of avoiding treatment for this cancer, then I strongly urge that you (or they) reconsider their choice not to receive treatment. Dying from an otherwise curable cervical cancer can be a terrible way to die (and is far more painful than the treatment for this disease).
If you are urging someone to seek treatment for their cervical cancer, can you estimate how much it would cost? If you have no insurance, no family to help, and not enough income (or collateral) to get a loan, what is a person supposed to do? I've seen a distant friend struggle for 4 years and still lose her life to cancer. I'd guess the family spend a quarter of a million dollars, but not sure they are ready to talk about finances.
I'd never have enough money to fight anything as big as cancer. And most people die of some form of cancer, right.
i have been diagnosed i had cervical cancer and had my chemo, radiation and brachy therapy last year may to june.and the doc told me it was gone,and i am feeling okay right now..the treatment is not as painfull as anybody think as what i think before i had my first,and isnt not worst that you pity yourself and look bad and bald,theres already a drug that cant bald..just be positive thinker...
