Title : To evaluate the association of urinary tract infections in patients undergoing pelvic radiation for cervical cancers


Patients who are undergoing pelvic radiation should be assessed for urinary tract infections, and based on this, those patients who are symptomatic like burning micturition or dysuria developed during radiation have to be evaluated based on urine culture and sensitivity reports and can prescribe antibiotics to them as well as after completion of 6-14 days of course of antibiotics whether those patients still having urinary complaints or they are relieved. In peripheral areas, females lack knowledge of hygiene and protection during intercourse and the number of child births, and the preventive methods. Urinary tract infection can persist for months even after completion of pelvic radiation. by this study, we can educate the patient of the young age group for taking precaution, and for those who are developing urinary tract infections, we can prescribe antibiotics based on the culture and sensitivity reports, and this follow up can be continued up to six months to assess the late complications like radiation-induced cystitis.
