Cervical Cancer affects over 14,000 women per year in the United States. The age of cervical cancer varies, but in the United States the average age of diagnosis is 50 years old. In many cases, this is a curative disease, however in advanced stages the five year survival is less than 50%.
The main cause of cervical cancer is due to an infection called human papilloma virus (HPV) passed on by sexual contact. The virus causes the tissue cells to grow abnormally and turn into cancer.
