What is Cervical Cancer?
Cervical cancer starts in the cells lining the cervix -- the lower part of the uterus (womb). The cervix connects the body of the uterus (the upper part where a fetus grows) to the vagina (birth canal). Cancer starts when cells in the body begin to grow out of control.

Cervical cancer is most often diagnosed between the ages of 35 and 44.

The risk of cervical cancer can be reduced by following simple measures:

1) Maintain good hygiene

2) Safe sexual practices

3) Get vaccinated for HPV at recommended age group 

4) Quit smoking

5) Get regular screening with PAP smear
