Cervical cancer is a cancer that affects women of different ages.
It is the second most common cancer occurring in women, after breast cancer.
Cervical cancer is the third most common cancer among Malaysian females after breast and colorectal cancer.
It begins in the cervix – the part of the uterus (or womb) that opens to the vagina.
One of the causes of cervical cancer is persistent infection with an extremely common and contagious virus: the human papilomavirus (HPV).
Factors contributing to the persistence of cancer causing HPV infection and the subsequent development of cervical cancer include the followings.
A young age at first sexual experience.
High number of pregnancies.
Long-term use of oral contraceptives
Other sexually transmitted infections (e.g. Herpes simplex virus, Chlamydia).
The above are explanations given the medical professionals.
Any other causes?
How about abortion?
How about too frequent sexual intercourse?
How about the unhealthy food taken?
Perhaps, the scientists may also wish to look into these factors.
