Cervical Cancer : Cervical cancer starts in the cells lining the cervix – the lower part of the uterus (womb). This is sometimes called the uterine cervix. The fetus grows in the body of the uterus (the upper part). The cervix connects the body of the uterus to the vagina (birth canal).

If you are not a cervical cancer patient, then you should include the Pap smear test and Pelvic Examination such as colposcopy  during your screenings.

These tests are important parts of a woman’s health because they can detect abnormalities that may lead to invasive cancer of the cervix .Most invasive cancers of the cervix can be treated on time if women have Pap tests regularly. Also, as with many types of cancer, cancer of the cervix is more likely to be treated successfully if it is detected early. You may also consider having the HPV Vaccines such Cervarix or Gardasil to protect against some HPV infections and genital warts.
