Cervical cancer is the fourth most common cancer in women worldwide. Most cases occur in developing nations and it is a major source of global morbidity and mortality. Most cervical cancers are the result of chronic human papillomavirus (HPV) infection. Cervical cancer can be prevented through cervical cancer screening, treatment of cervical dysplasia, and HPV vaccination. Treatment for cervical cancer is based on stage of disease and size of tumor. Treatment options include surgery, radiation, and chemotherapy.
