I love being a woman, and so are you. But a lot of lives were triggered and lost because of the threatening cervical cancer.As Cervical Cancer is one of the most common cancers that affect a woman's reproductive organs. Cervical cancer symptoms often go unnoticed because they mimic so many other ailments. Many women pass these symptoms off as PMS or ovulation pains. Many times, however, cervical cancer has no symptoms. When symptoms are present, they usually do not appear until the cancer is more advanced. This does vary from woman to woman. This is why regular screening is important.As they say, prevention is better than cure. But how could you prevent without getting to know what causes it?And so what really causes cervical cancer?As per mayoclinic.com, 'cancer begins when healthy cells acquire a genetic mutation that turns normal cells into abnormal cells. Healthy cells grow and multiply at a set rate, eventually dying at a set time. Cancer cells grow and multiply out of control, and they don't die. The accumulating abnormal cells form a mass (tumor). Cancer cells invade nearby tissues and can break off from an initial tumor to spread elsewhere in the body (metastasize)'.
As we get the privileged to be modernized, there is now a vaccine where it is approved by the Food and Drug Administration also known as (FDA) that prevents from getting a cervical cancer whereas it blocks the two causing types of HPV which are the Types 16 and 18.
What we have to do is to consult our friendly doctor, get a test, and be aware of what's going on with our body..
And why let the freaking Cervical Cancer goes on your way if you could get protected now?.It's now or never better yet, too late...
