The Walk-in Uterus Model
This model is a schematic representation of the most important features of the uterus. In the interests of imparting simple basic information, absolute anatomical authenticity has not always been maintained.
Disease patterns in the uterus
Germany has an early diagnosis programme in which around half of all women regularly participate. Approximately 6,000 women contract cervical cancer each year in this country, with something like 2,000 dying as a result. 80% of all cases appear in women who have not participated in the early diagnosis programme.
The cervix uteri connects the lower section of the uterus with the vagina. This is where a form of cancer known as cervical carcinoma can develop. The prerequisite for the development of cervical carcinoma is an infection over a number of years with certain strains of the cancerous human papillomavirus. Innoculation against two forms of human papillomavirus is currently available, greatly reducing the risk of cervical cancer. Global figures show that around 500,000 women contract the disease each year. The total number of annual deaths worldwide is 350,000.
Occasionally, the tissue spreads to other parts of the body. This is known as endometriosis.
Uterine cancer, also known as cancer of the uterus and endometrial cancer, is the most common malignant disease affecting the female sexual organs, as well as being the fourth most common form of cancer. In Germany, around 10,000 women contract the disease each year. Uterine cancer originates from cells in glands on the lining of the uterus (corpus uteri).
Inflammation of the uterus
Inflammations of the uterus can affect the whole organ or individual parts of it.
For this reason, they can be subdivided into inflammations of the cervix (cervicitis), the mucous membrane, the muscular layer (myometritis), the outer uterine layer (perimetritis), the entire uterus (metritis) and the ligaments that support the uterus.
Myomas are tumors which develop in the muscular layer of the uterus (myometrium). They are the most common of the benign tumors which can take hold in the female genital tract, and every woman runs the risk of developing them – in Europe, every fourth to sixth woman of child-bearing age is affected. Although these benign tumours are not dangerous as such, they do tend to have a negative impact on quality of life.
