Do you know that almost all (99%) cervical cancer cases are linked to infection with high-risk human papillomavirus (HPV)?
HPV is the most common viral infection of the reproductive tract. While there are many types of HPV that do not cause problems, a small portion of infections with certain types of HPV can persist and progress to cervical cancer. Thankfully, cervical cancer can be prevented, treated, and cured.
