Cervical cancer is an uncommon type of cancer that develops in a woman’s cervix. However, globally, cervical cancer is the fourth most common type of cancer and it is the fourth most common cause of death in women suffering from cancer. Cervical cancer is now a largely preventable disease thanks to cervical screening and the HPV vaccination programme. However, every day in the United Kingdom nine women are diagnosed with cervical cancer and three will ultimately lose their life to the disease. The focus of Cervical Cancer Prevention Week (CCPW) is on all things to do with cervical cancer including information about symptoms and causes of the disease and ways to prevent it.
