What causes Cervical Cancer?
          A virus-HPV(Human Papilloma Virus)
               HPV 16, HPV 18 is the cause of  >75% of Cervical Cancer

          Large number of women get HPV infection sometime during life time (80% by the age of 50).
          There are no symptoms – you may not know you have it
           Majority would clear infection without developing any disease.
           Few women develop precancerous lesions and cervical cancer over a period of time (few months to 9 years).
