All You Need to Know About Cervical Cancer

"Our research has found a third more BAME women of screening age have never attended a cervical screening appointment compared to white women, and only half are able to identify the human papillomavirus (HPV) as the cause of cervical cancer, compared to nearly two thirds of white women".

This week is Cervical Cancer Prevention week (22nd January - 28th January) and there are concerns women are not getting regular tests.

Robert Music, Chief Executive of Jo's Cervical Cancer Trust, said: "Cervical cancer is largely preventable with cervical screening (smear tests) providing the best protection against the disease". While HPV is common, only a small fraction of women infected with this virus will develop cervical cancer, she said.

If you have been diagnosed with high-risk HPV, don't panic.

In most cases the infections go away by themselves, but when they don't they can become more serious, causing several types of cancers in both men and women including cancers of the cervix, vulva, vagina, anus, throat, tongue, tonsils and penis.

Every year in the United Kingdom, over 3,000 women will be diagnosed with cervical cancer. Then, women getting a Pap test should add a test that checks for strains of human papillomavirus, or HPV, Dominguez said.

Talk to your health care provider for more information screening or the HPV vaccine. "It's been a big day for the campaign today to get what we want". This is usually used in combination with chemotherapy and also has few side effects like low blood cell counts, fatigue, upset stomach, nausea, vomiting, and loose stools. For one, the vaccine is intramuscular, so receiving it is uncomfortable and potentially painful.

"There are different state programs called Vaccine for Children and the ACA and other measures helped to strengthen these programs, so the vaccine is free for those who can not afford it", Malpass said.

Others who pay out of pocket can also come to the University's hospital and undergo financial screening to see if they are eligible to receive the vaccine at a decreased cost. Screening is for people without symptoms as a preventative measure. Women who have had the HPV vaccine still need to have regular Pap tests. Increased understanding about these topics can help to refute misconceptions and fears.

Students can get the HPV vaccine through the Elson Student Health Center.
