Cervical Cancer is a Human Papilloma Virus (HPV) related disease. HPV is the most common infection of the reproductive tract, infecting a majority of sexually active men and women from around the world at least once in their lifetime. Moreover, the infection can occur more than once. HPV is the cause of cervical cancer in 90% of the cases. Other factors causing cervical cancer, while minor, include smoking, birth control pills, having sex at a young age, having several sexual partners, multiple pregnancies etc. The HPV virus can be transmitted by skin to skin genital contact and does not even require penetrative sex for the virus to spread.
Worldwide, cervical cancer is both the fourth most common cause of cancer and death from cancer in women. Studies in the last year alone show 528,000 cases of cervical cancer with 266,000 deaths by it.
