cervical cancer vaccination

Cervical cancer vaccination: Why is it absolutely necessary for young boys and girls?

It usually takes 10–20 years for cervical cancer to develop after HPV infection. So if one can prevent cancer causing HPV infection in the first place and cervical precancerous changes in the cervical cells, eventually, cervical cancer can be prevented. Since we know that cervical cancer is caused by HPV infection, vaccines have been developed to prevent major cancer causing HPVs such as HPV 16 and 18 in addition to others.

Unlike most cancers, Colorectal Cancer is mostly preventable on screening and is highly treatable, but only when detected early. Hence, it is necessary for the general public to be aware of the early warning signs and symptoms of colorectal cancer and contact the concerned specialist for early detection of cancerous or pre-cancerous conditions for timely surgical interventions and for better prognosis.
