Let’s talk more about Cervical cancer

January is Cervical cancer month as you already know, but I would like to take a few minutes to talk about this type of cancer.

HPV (Human Papillomavirus) is the primary cause of cervical cancer.  Smoking can increase your chances of getting cervical cancer.  Having a weak immunity also increases your risks.  Having multiple partners and not using protection also increases the risk for this cancer.

Some of the signs of cervical cancer are:  abnormal bleeding in between menstrual cycles, post-menopausal bleeding, unpleasant vaginal odor, painful sex, abnormal bloating and back pain.

Please remember that cervical cancer can affect any women.  Your mom, your sister, your niece, your co-worker, your friends, your aunt, your grandmother, your daughter… Cervical cancer doesn’t discriminate and every woman should have a pap smear every 2 to 3 years, if their last pap smear was normal.


Also, remember that not everyone has the same signs and symptoms.  If you are experiencing something that is abnormal for you for more than two week or so, please get check out.  The earlier the cancer is found the better the results.
