What is Cervical Cancer? Well to give you a short explanation of it is, it can be from the Human papillomavirus (HPV). HPV is a virus that is contracted from sexual contact. The HPV virus causes changes to the cells of the cervix, and without the proper treatment it can lead into Cervical Cancer.       Risk factors for Cervical Cancer include: Lack of regular par smears Weakened immune system due to HIV infection Age: Women over 40 are more likely to develop cancer of the cervix Women who have had multiple sex partners Extended use of birth control pills (5 or more years) Lowering your risk factors will help decrease your chances of being diagnosed with Cervical Cancer.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
