Cervical cancer is the second most common cause of cancer death in women worldwide. There are two main cervical cancers: squamous and glandular. Changes in either of these types of cells can result in cervical cancer.
There may not be any symptoms until the cells have already turned into cancer and have invaded the deepest parts of the cervix or any of the other pelvic organs.
Common symptoms include:
Bleeding abnormally from the vagina
Bleeding after sexual intercourse
Regular screenings and a preventive vaccination can help to catch this condition early or prevent it altogether. Almost all cervical cancers are caused by a persistent HPV infection so vaccinating young girls before they are sexually active is an important prevention of pre-cancer and cancer. A routine smear test to screen for the HPV virus or any other signs of cervical cancer is critical for early detection.
