Cervical Cancer

Cervical cancer is cancer in the cervix, or the neck of the uterus. It is almost always caused by infection of the human papillomavirus. Improved detection and early treatment have reduced the rate of cervical cancer by almost half of what it used to be.

1. Which doctor should I see to consult on cervical cancer?

You should see a gynecologist or a gynecologic oncologist for your problem.

2. I have a single sex partner. Do I need to do a pap test?

Cervical cancer is more common among women with multiple partners and also among women whose partners have several partners. It is therefore important for all women who are sexually active to undergo routine screening to prevent its onset.

3. Why does having multiple sex partners increase the incidence of cervical cancer?

The Human Papilloma Virus spreads through sex. The infection by this virus is very prevalent in the community and the current data from CDC estimates that about 20 million people in the U.S. are infected with HPV. Having multiple sex partners increases the chance of suffering from the infection and hence makes the women more prone to cervical cancer. However it should also be known that HPV is only a risk factor for the occurrence of cancer and not all women with HPV infection develop cervical cancer.
