National Cervical Cancer Awareness Week/ A-1 Home Care Los Angeles

This month is Cervical Cancer Awareness Month. In respect to this, A-1 Home Care has compiled resources that may inform you about this serious illness.

Cervical cancer is a type of cancer that often grows very slowly over a period of years. Before the cancer actually develops, there are early changes that occur in the cells of the cervix. While these abnormal cells may not actually be cancerous, these cells may lead to cancer. These cells are sometimes referred to as precancerous, meaning that they have the potential to develop into cancer if not treated.

 All women, younger and older, are potentially at risk of developing cervical cancer at some point in their lifetime. The most common risk factors for cervical cancer include an early age of first intercourse, having multiple sexual partners, and having experienced a weakened immune system. Cervical cancer is most often diagnosed in women in their late 30s. It can, however, be diagnosed in younger as well as elderly women.
