Cervical Cancer Treatment
Cervical cancer is one of the second most prevalent cancers among women worldwide and caused by human papillomavirus infection. India reports 25% of cervical cancer cases each year affecting 1 out of every 53 women; unfortunately most cases don’t present symptoms until late stages and advanced stages due to lack of knowledge surrounding its symptoms.
HPV vaccines can help protect against cervical cancer. Being vaccinated will greatly lower your chances of contracting this illness later. In order to understand how cervical cancer arises and avoid its development, let’s hear from some experts in order to gain more knowledge.
What Is Cervical Cancer? According to Dr. Minu Walia of Max Hospital Patpadganj’s Department of Magic Oncology, cervical cancer begins in the cervix and is caused by human papillomavirus infection. India accounts for 25% of global cervical cancer cases worldwide and every 47 minutes, one woman is diagnosed with this illness; eight minutes after that an Indian woman succumbs. Every eight minutes another Indian dies of cervical cancer annually – evidence of increasing incidence rates every year.
Cervical Cancer Treatment and Prevention Strategies
Dr. Minu Walia advises that cervical cancer can be treated, but prevention is the key. Adolescent girls can get the HPV vaccine to lower their risk and smear tests can detect early symptoms. Women must become familiar with cervical cancer prevention methods such as administering HPV vaccination to girls between 9-14 years of age.
