January is Cervical Cancer Awareness Month

Cervical Cancer Awareness Month every Januarary is a chance to equip young women with the awareness and tools to prevent cervical cancer. Almost all cervical cancers are caused by the human papillomavirus (HPV). Genital HPV can be passed through sexual activity. It’s important to note that HPV doesn’t only happen to women; men can also contract HPV. HPV starts in the cells of the cervix and can cause most cervical cancers. It can develop slowly over time, if not addressed it can spread to surrounding areas. Find more information on Cervical Cancer here.
