The Ultimate Guide to Cervical Cancer Prevention in Singapore (2020)
The Ultimate Guide to Cervical Cancer Prevention in Singapore (2020)

Cervical cancer is more common than you think. It is the 4th-most common cancer among women worldwide. However, there is a silver lining: It is highly preventable!

Human papillomavirus (HPV) is the leading cause of cervical cancer, because of its ability to cause abnormalities in cervical cells. This is why you should get HPV vaccination and take preventative measures to reduce your risk of cervical cancer.

But are there other things that put you at risk of cervical cancer? How can you detect it early?

I am Dr Timothy Lim, a gynaecologist at Timothy Lim Clinic for Women & Cancer Surgery. In this article, I will talk about what cervical cancer is, who is at risk and how you can prevent and protect yourself from it.
