Cervical cancer is one of the most common types of cancer among women around the world.
It occurs in the cells of the cervix, the lower part of the uterus that connects to the vagina. Almost all cases of cervical cancer are caused by a virus called HPV.
Women of all ages run the risk of developing this cancer after sexual intercourse begins. Risk factors include unsafe sex, multiple sex partners, weight gain, oral contraceptive use, genetics, smoking, poor immunity, multiple pregnancies and early pregnancy at an early age.
One of the most frightening things about this cancer is that it does not show any symptoms in its early stages. After the disease has spread to the bladder, liver, intestine or lungs, the symptoms are more pronounced.
