Cervical cancer occurs when abnormal cells on the cervix grow out of control. The cervix is the lower part of the uterus that opens into the vagina. Cervical cancer becomes common nowadays. Cervical cancer can often be successfully treated when it is found early.
Most cervical cancer is caused by a virus called human papillomavirus, known as HPV.
You can get HPV by having sexual contact with someone who has it.
The common symptoms may include vaginal bleeding that is not normal after sex. Pain during sex is another symptom. Vaginal discharge is also abnormal.
