Welcome to the Cervical Cancer Channel
No one knows the exact cause or causes of cervical cancer, a disease that occurs when malignant cells form in the tissues of the cervix. But there are a number of risk factors that can increase a woman's chances of developing the disease, such as being infected with the human papillomavirus (HPV). There are several treatment options available for cervical cancer -- which rarely causes death in women who have regular screenings or are younger than 30 years of age -- and researchers continue to look at new ways of treating the disease.
Welcome to the Cervical Cancer Health Channel by eMedTV. We hope that you will find this channel to be a useful resource on a broad range of topics related to cervical cancer. Whether you're looking for information on how to reduce your chances of getting cervical cancer or would like tips on how to find a cervical cancer support group, you will find the information you need here. On this channel, you will find detailed information about cervical cancer risk factors and symptoms, as well as specific tests that a healthcare provider may use to diagnose the disease and some of the available treatment options for cervical cancer -- including both standard and alternative treatments.
