Cervical cancer occurs when abnormal cells on the cervix grow out of control. Cervical cancer can often be successfully treated when it’s found early. It is usually discovered at a very early stage through a Pap test. Cervical cancer is primarily caused by the human papillomavirus virus, or HPV. HPV is contracted through sexual intercourse with an infected individual.
