Cervical cancer is one of the most common cancers among women,

second only to breast cancer. Each year in the Philippines, it changes the lives of over 6,000 women and takes away over 2,000.

Caused by the Human Papillomavirus (HPV), it is a disease wherein a tumor grows and destroys the cervix. It has little to no symptoms until its later stages, often being discovered only when the disease has spread past the cervix. Despite its deadliness, it can be cured if diagnosed early through screening and detection. It is also highly preventable with the help of vaccines and enhanced immunity through healthy lifestyle.
