BACKGROUND Postcoital bleeding may be a symptom of cervical cancer. Guidance to aid a GP in determining whom to investigate or refer exists but recommendations vary. Women need to be involved in decisions about their care and this involves communicating risk and an exploration of the implications of the risk. Risk estimates of postcoital bleeding for cervical cancer are not available. AIM To provide an estimate of the positive predictive values of postcoital bleeding for cervical cancer to… Expand
Outcomes of women with postcoital bleeding

  • 2013
TLDR
A 1-year retrospective analysis performed to determine the frequency of pathology in women with PCB, evaluate the current service provision; and update the local guideline regarding management of PCB found a high incidence of CIN, similar to a case series analysis. Expand
Postcoital bleeding is a predictor for cervical dysplasia
TLDR
Study results indicate that PCB may require colposcopy, especially for nulliparous women with an abnormal PAP smear, as well as other risk factors for dysplasia/cancer among patients presenting post-coital bleeding. Expand
Postcoital Bleeding: A Review on Etiology, Diagnosis, and Management
TLDR
A paper is compiled illustrating the key concepts a practitioner should know when it comes to postcoital bleeding and treatment options for women who are found to have an identifiable source for their bleeding and the likelihood that malignancy is the underlying cause. Expand
Standardising Our Management Of Postcoital Bleeding
TLDR
A structured management plan is outlined for women presenting with PCB that aimed to include a timely referral, sensible investigations, and appropriate management. Expand
Post-coital bleeding: What is the incidence of significant gynaecological pathology in women referred for colposcopy?
TLDR
Although most women had a benign cause for post-coital bleeding, around 2% had a colposcopy-aided diagnosis of either cervical precancer or cancer; therefore, referral of symptomatic women deserves consideration. Expand
Post coital bleeding is a risk for cervical cell abnormality
TLDR
There is higher prevalence of High-grade squamous intraepithelial lesions among females with PCB, and non- significant difference among those aged less or more than 40 years, therefore it’s important to examine any patient complaining of PCB with PAP smear cytology and colposcopy examination.

Managing women with post-coital bleeding: A prospective observational non-comparative study

  • Medicine
  • Journal of obstetrics and gynaecology : the journal of the Institute of Obstetrics and Gynaecology
  • 2010
TLDR
A large multi-centre study is needed to provide more information in order to optimise the management of post-coital bleeding and it is suggested that the duration, but not age or severity, is relevant. Expand
Evaluation of Post Coital Bleeding By Cinical and Pathalogical Finding
Objective(s): To evaluate the women presenting with post-coital bleeding by cytology, colposcopy and histopathology and to formulate the strategy for management of patients with this symptom.Expand
Palliative interventions for controlling vaginal bleeding in advanced cervical cancer.
TLDR
A systematic review of palliative treatments for vaginal bleeding in women with advanced cervical cancer found no evidence from controlled trials to support or refute the use of any of the proposed interventions compared with radiotherapy. Expand
Cervical Cancer in the aged: Pinar del Río, 2005-2008
TLDR
A review of articles and research papers on the topic of the last five years was performed, establishing a sustainable prevention and treatment to diminish the social and economic burden derived from this problem. Expand

Bleeding symptoms and subsequent risk of gynecological and other cancers
TLDR
The prevalence of bleeding symptoms was small and relative risks for cancers were low for them to be suitable as predictive factors of cancer neither in clinical practice nor for public health purposes, e.g. in developing selective screening based on this high risk group. Expand
A clinico-pathological study of postcoital bleeding
TLDR
It is concluded that CIN may not always be asymptomatic and the incidence of cervical or endometrial cancer is low in women with PCB, and the first report of associatedendometrial polyps contributing to PCB is reported. Expand
An epidemiological survey of symptoms of menstrual loss in the community.
  • M. Shapley, K. Jordan, P. Croft
  • Medicine
  • The British journal of general practice : the journal of the Royal College of General Practitioners
  • 2004
TLDR
The development of symptoms of menstrual loss among women in the community is common, in contrast to the rarity of gynaecological malignancy, which raises concern about the usefulness of current guidelines, based on symptoms, advising women when to consult. Expand
How Alarming Is Post-Coital Bleeding – A Cytologic, Colposcopic and Histopathologic Evaluation
TLDR
Age, parity and duration of PCB were correlated with histopathologic findings, i.e. benign changes, viral HPV changes and cervical intra-epithelial neoplasia (CIN) 1, CIN 2 and 3 and invasive cancer for risk assessment. Expand
Selective screening for cervical cancer. Experience of the Finnish mass screening system.
TLDR
It is suggested that selective screening apart from that based on age has a limited application and should be restricted mainly to the interval between the organised screenings, which in Finland is five years. Expand
Results of clinically downstaging cervical cancer in a cytological screening programme
TLDR
Dysplastic smears were seen frequently in all age and parity groups, but malignancy was common in women of high age (over 30 years) and high parity (two and above), and the incidence of three sexually transmitted diseases revealed highly significant values, especially in women whose cervix bled to the touch. Expand
Cervical cancer--a neglected health tragedy.
TLDR
Comparison with previous Nigerian studies reveal a continued lack of improvement over the years as regards preventative strategies and adequate treatment facilities, and Suggestions on cervical cancer control measures for developing countries like Nigeria are given. Expand
Abnormal Uterine Bleeding and Cancer of the Genital Tract
TLDR
The point that dilatation and curettage need not be routinely performed in women under the age of 40 years with menor‐rhagia to exclude carcinoma of the endometrium is made. Expand
Epidemiology and clinical significance of cervical erosion in women attending a family planning clinic.
TLDR
Cervical erosion should not be regarded as pathological in asymptomatic women, nor should it be assumed necessarily to be the cause of symptoms in women with genitourinary complaints. Expand
'Two week wait' standards for suspected gynaecological malignancy. On target, but missing the point?
TLDR
To accommodate the two-week rapid access referrals and achieve UK government targets, there was a reduction in appointments for routine outpatient referrals, however, as the majority of women with gynaecological malignancy presented via traditional referral routes, there is a danger that their diagnoses are being delayed.
