Most often caused by a Human Papillomavirus (HPV), cervical cancer starts in the cervix, which is the lower part of the uterus. It occurs when abnormal cells on the cervix grow out of control.

Cervical cancer can affect any woman who has ever been sexually active. It is not a disease that only affects low-income, unhygienic or promiscuous women. It does not discriminate.
