Cervical Cancer prevention

Updated: Jan 17, 2022



Cervical cancer is 2nd most common cancer in females after breast cancer and is caused by sexually transmitted human papilloma virus (HPV) . The virus which also causes genital warts.


Being infected with this virus does not mean that u will get cervical cancer.

Repeated untreated infection causes abnormal cell development on cervix over the years and which in turn develop into a cancer.

Good part is that most infections resolve by their own.





CAUSES:

  • Early marriage/commencement of sexual activity at early age

  • Multiparity

  • Multiple sexual partner

  • Smoking

  • Altered immunity/HIV infection




PREVENTION:


  • Regular screening with PAP test/LBC and HPV testing --to find any abnormal cell changes/precancerous lesions and treat them on time.

  • Receiving HPV Vaccine. Best results obtained when vaccine is received before commencement of sexual activity or marriage.
