Cervical Cancer

Cervical cancer is cancer arising from the cervix. It is due to the abnormal growth of cells that have the ability to invade or spread to other parts of the body. Human papillomavirus infection (HPV) causes more than 90% of cases.

You can reduce your risk of developing cervical cancer by having screening tests and receiving a vaccine that protects against HPV infection.
