Cervical Cancer

Cervical Cancer

Abnormal cells growing on the cervix, the narrow lower part of the uterus, may develop into cervical cancer. A major cause of cervical cancer, the human papilloma virus (HPV), can be sexually transmitted.

Because you may not experience symptoms of HPV or cervical cancer, you need to know your status, stay aware of risk factors – including genital warts and multiple sexual partners – and get annual health screenings, such as pelvic exams and the Pap test that reveals precancerous cells. With this regular method of early detection, you can help prevent cervical cancer.
