Cervical Cancer is the second most common cancer in women.
There is a good chance of a cure if the cancer is detected and treated in the early stages, but guess what? There is a vaccine!
That's right. Cervical cancer is one of the few cancers that you can be protected against.
The cancer is caused by the HPV - Human Papilloma Virus that infects the cervix.
HPV can easily spread through any form of intercourse or genital contact.
To reduce your risk of getting cervical cancer, keep your cervix healthy. Do an LBC (liquid-based cytology) test and get the HPV vaccine as soon as possible.
