What is cervical cancer?
Cervical cancer develops in the cervix cells of women i.e. the lower part of the uterus. As the cases of cervical cancer are increasing rapidly across the world, there is a lack of information and understanding of prevention among the people about this cancer. Let us tell you that women above 20 years of age are advised to do vaccination and regular checkups to prevent cervical cancer, but due to lack of information, people do not do so. Therefore, cases of cervical cancer are increasing rapidly in India as well as around the world.
What are the symptoms of cervical cancer?
Health experts say that cervical cancer is caused by a special type of HPV and sexually transmitted infections. HPV is actually a group of human papilloma viruses in which more than 14 viruses can cause different types of cancer. Two types of this virus group can be said to be responsible for 70 percent of cervical cancer. However, the symptoms of cervical cancer are usually not very obvious and that is why it is difficult to identify it early. Its symptoms include abnormal bleeding from the vagina, abnormal liquid discharge from the vagina, weight loss, persistent pain in the lower back and difficulty in defecation. Women usually do not pay attention to these symptoms and it becomes a serious form of cancer.
