HPV and Cervical Cancer

4 out of 5 people will be infected by HPV at some point in their lives. While some types of HPV may not have any symptoms and visible signs, there are a few that can harm us and our loved ones. ⠀ HPV is the main risk factor for cervical cancer in women. The good news is cervical cancer can be prevented.⠀ In fact, it is one of the most preventable cancers.⠀ The most common form of cervical cancer starts with precancerous changes on a woman’s cervix. ⠀ There are 2 ways to stop this disease from developing.⠀ 1. Find and treat pre-cancers before they become invasive cancers.⠀ 2. Prevent pre-cancers.⠀ Ladies, is your cervical screening up to date?⠀
