新疆十一选五前三遗漏:Cervical cancer

    Overview

    新疆十一选五组选 www.luhcv.com Cervical cancer develops in a woman's cervix (the entrance to the uterus from the vagina).  

    Almost all cervical cancer cases (99%) are linked to infection with high-risk human papillomaviruses (HPV), an extremely common virus transmitted through sexual contact.

    Although most infections with HPV resolve spontaneously and cause no symptoms, persistent infection can cause cervical cancer in women.

    Cervical cancer is the fourth most common cancer in women. In 2018, an estimated 570 000 women were diagnosed with cervical cancer worldwide and about 311 000 women died from the disease.

    Effective primary (HPV vaccination) and secondary prevention approaches (screening for, and treating precancerous lesions) will prevent most cervical cancer cases.

    When diagnosed, cervical cancer is one of the most successfully treatable forms of cancer, as long as it is detected early and managed effectively. Cancers diagnosed in late stages can also be controlled with appropriate treatment and palliative care.

    With a comprehensive approach to prevent, screen and treat, cervical cancer can be eliminated as a public health problem within a generation.
