Serviks Cancer Attack Women at Productive Age

Serviks cancer, according to Dr. dr. Andrijono from Medical Faculty of Indonesia University, often attack women when they are at 30 - 50 years of age. Whereas, it it important time in the life of a woman, when they are still working and also reproducing.

Based on his experience in handling cancer patient, he said that not only the life quality of a patients degrades, but also his family endure the same thing. Above all, the medical cost is really expensive.

In a research held by Dr Cipto Mangunkusumo hospital, in association with Dutch Government, it is found that the most cancer cause in Indonesia is viruses named HPV 16, 18, and 52. The viruse is indentified at some big cities in Indonesia such as Jakarta, Bandung, and Tasikmalaya.

Infection caused by HPV 16 and 18 is around 70% - 80%. Only 5% is a combination of HPV16, 18, and 52 infections. So there is a possibility of double infection.

dr. Andrijono said that the virus infection actually can cure by itself. The probability is at around 75% - 90%. Only 2% will became cancer. If there are 100 person infected by the virus, only 2 will be attacked by cancer.

The journey for the virus infection to become cancer actually take a long time. It can be 10 - 20 years. Unfortunately, people rarely realize the process. It is because the infection process to become cancer is mostly without symptoms.

When the cancer reachs stadium 1, the system immune of a patient is very important to cure the disease, and at this stadium, the cancer has not spread yet because cell membrane still can prevent it. However, when the stadium increases, there must be a medical action.

dr. Andrijono said that he has ever had a pra-cancer patient and he suggested him to take medical operation, but the patients refused. Three years later, the patient died.
