Early changes in cervical cells rarely cause symptoms. If early cell changes develop into cervical disease, the most common signs include:

  • vaginal bleeding between periods
  • menstrual bleeding that is longer or heavier than usual
  • bleeding after intercourse
  • pain during intercourse
  • unusual vaginal discharge
  • vaginal bleeding after menopause
  • excessive tiredness
  • leg pain or swelling
  • low back pain.

The usual tests to diagnose cervical disease are:

  • colposcopy
  • biopsy, cone biopsy or large loop excision of the transformation zone.
