Tips to prevent Cervical Cancer

Cancer is one disease that scientists are still trying to find a “cure” for. Unfortunately however, cancer does not have a “one-size-fits-all” approach, as there are many different types of cancer. Unlike diseases, such as COVID-19, where there are variants, but vaccines can still be developed to function against multiple variants. Some of the causes of cancer may be genetic predispositions that increase your risk of developing cancer, environmental ones, or most commonly, a combination of both.
Fortunately, cervical cancer has one major cause, which as an infection with human papillomavirus (HPV), a sexually transmitted diseases. Although that does not mean everyone who gets infected with (HPV) will develop cervical cancer, it means they drastically decrease their chances of developing the cancer. In addition to trying to avoid HPV, you can also prevent cervical cancer in a myriad of different ways. Here are some tips below:
1. Have a PAP test “a method of cervical screening”.

2. Get vaccinated for HPV “a sexually transmitted infection”.

3. Practice regular screening habits for HPV.

4. Practice safe sex.

5. Avoid smoking in general as it is carcinogenic.

6. Consult with your doctor for the long term use of birth control pills.
