Cervical disease is a broad term for an inflammation or infection of the cervix.
The cervix is the lower part of the uterus, the place where a baby grows during pregnancy. The cervix has a small opening that expands during childbirth. It also allows menstrual blood to leave a woman's body.
Common symptoms related to conditions of the cervix include vagina discharge, spotting, bleeding, pain, pressure, or discomfort. Such symptoms can be caused by inflammation, infection, injury, allergy, precancerous cellular changes, or cervical cancer.
Cervix diseases are caused by trauma, chemicals, infections, condoms and devices that come in contact with the cervix, depending upon their composition. Many cervical infections, including chlamydia, gonorrhea, trichomoniasis, herpes, and human papilloma virus, or HPV, are transmitted through sexual contact.
Cervical erosion is a partial or complete lack of tissue layer of the cervix. The normal tissue on the surface of the cervix and/or around the mouth of the cervix is replaced by inflamed tissue from within the cervical canal. This tissue layer appears red and grainy, so it gives the cervix a red, eroded, and infected appearance.
Cervical erosion is a very common disease which can be treated as outpatients. It can easily be dictated in a routine gynecological examination. If you are suspecting of inflation it is important that you will track the duration of the infection which is an important factor do determined the infection type.
