Cervical Cancer / HPV Vaccine News From Medical News Today

Cervical cancer develops from a cell that is abnormal. Abnormal cells can be present for years before one becomes cancerous and multiplies out of control to form a cancerous tumor. Often the initial pre-cancerous abnormalities of cervical cells are caused by infection with the human papillomavirus (HPV). Treatment depends on various factors and general health, and may consist of a combination of surgery, radiation and chemotherapy.
  1. Researchers have found a link between oral sex and smoking and an increased risk of a type head and neck cancer triggered by the human papillomavirus.
  2. A cancer diagnosis always comes as a shock. What are some coping strategies you can use to stay in control of the situation? We gathered some suggestions.
  3. Researchers have revealed a key aspect behind the mechanism that allows HPV to promote cancer cell survival. This discovery may suggest a better treatment.
  4. Women who receive human papillomavirus (HPV) testing, in addition to a pap smear, receive a faster, more complete diagnosis of possible cervical precancer, according to a study of over 450,000 women...
  5. Scientists have identified a molecular pathway by which some types of human papilloma virus (HPV) might increase the risk of skin cancer, particularly in people with the rare genetic disorder...
  6. Drug that mimics action of folic acid shrinks half of tumours.A new targeted treatment for ovarian cancer has shown 'very promising' results in an early clinical trial - shrinking tumours in...
  7. Duke University researchers have developed a handheld device for cervical cancer screening that promises to do away with uncomfortable speculums and high-cost colposcopes.
  8. An oophorectomy is a surgical procedure in which a woman's ovaries are removed, prompting menopause. Learn more about this surgery and its side effects.
  9. Cancer is an extremely complex disease, but its definition is quite simple: the abnormal and uncontrollable growth of cells.
  10. Cervical cancer is often thought of as a disease that primarily affects young women. Because of this, many older women fail to keep up with appropriate screening as they age.
  11. Artificial intelligence - commonly known as A.I. - is already exceeding human abilities. Self-driving cars use A.I. to perform some tasks more safely than people. E-commerce companies use A.I.
  12. The latest Annual Report to the Nation on the Status of Cancer from the Department of Health and Human Services finds cancer death rates are declining.
  13. New study finds that women who take oral contraceptives may be at lower risk of some cancer types - including cervical cancer - for at least 30 years.
  14. The American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) today issued a clinical practice guideline on human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccination for the prevention of cervical cancer.
  15. Concern about sexual activity is declining as a reason parents do not get their daughters the human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccine, according to a research study presented at the Society of...
  16. Scientists have used genetic engineering techniques to develop a new system that could aid identification of potential drug targets and treatments for human papillomavirus (HPV) infection...
  17. For many years, cytology has been the established method used for cervical cancer screening.
  18. An in-depth genomic and molecular analysis of cervical cancer, reported in Nature, reveals potential new therapeutic targets for the disease, which remains one of the leading causes of...
  19. A new analysis finds that cervical cancer mortality rates in the United States may be higher than previous estimates have suggested.
  20. Black men are three times more likely to develop prostate cancer than other demographics, yet black men are consistently underrepresented in research studies, say researchers from King's College...
