Cervical cancer is one of the commonest cancers in women. As it affects young women it has grave
personal, social and economic consequences. It is unfortunate that despite cancer cervix being a preventable
disease, we have failed to reduce the number of deaths related to it. Recent developments in the understanding of the disease process and its link to the oncogenic strains of Human Papilloma Virus (HPV) has opened new avenues in
the way of prevention of cervical cancer.
