Instances of cervical cancer have dropped in recent years because its primary cause, the HPV virus, is now more preventable.

Vaccines are available that protect against HPV, including the two strains that cause the majority of all cervical cancers. Additionally, HPV screenings and regular Pap tests can discover the virus or precancerous cells.

As with all types of cancer, early detection is key in saving a life.
