Preventing Cervical Cancer in the 21st Century
Each year more than 4,000 U.S. women die from cervical cancer, the 2nd most common cancer in women worldwide. Over 90% of cases of cervical cancer are associated with human papillomavirus (HPV) and the risk of cancer varies among the different HPV strains. Fortunately, cervical cancer can be prevented through HPV vaccination and screening, which include Papanicolaou (Pap) and HPV DNA tests. These tests detect abnormal cells before they become cancerous (pre-cancers).
