Cervical Cancer - Introduction

Cervical cancer is a form of cancer affecting the cervix or a certain area of it. Cervical cancer is the fifth type of cancer as number of deaths. Uterine tumor is generally made up of squamous cells, similar to those affecting the head, throat or anus. There are several types of uterine cancer, according to image cancer cells seen through a microscope.

Cervical cancer may have more cause, but the largest number of cases occurs in the cervix following infection with certain strains of human papilloma virus (HPV). The risk is greater for women who have sex with many partners (be they men or women). Other possible cause of cervical cancer are other infections with Chlamydia trachomatis and other infections (including HIV infection), inadequate nutrition, hormonal contraception, multiple pregnancies, family history (genetic factors). List risk factors in uterine cancer could not exclude smoking; it is a risk factor in almost any type of cancer.

The choice of conduct to prevent cervical cancer is vital that potential victims of this disease to focus their efforts on things that you can control: quitting smoking or avoiding habit of the addiction, deviant sexual behavior and avoid choosing a partner Sexual stable, choosing a balanced diet rich in vegetables and fruits. Men and they have an important role in terms of protecting their partners. It appears that circumcision decreases the risk for partner level. (I wonder why God asked the Jews to make circumcision.).

Women can significantly increase your chances of doing a form of uterine cancer or to detect disease in early form, thus saving lives and participating in monitoring programs. There are no exact figures at this point, but it seems that monitoring saves thousands of lives every year.

Incidence of cervical cancer dropped significantly after the appearance of the cervico-vaginal cytology test. It was invented by Georgios Papanikolaou and Aurel Babes (I’m proud to say this is a Romanian scientist), independent of this other. It is a screening method, providing high sensitivity and specificity, invented to detect cellular changes in the uterine cervix.
