Abstract

The pathophysiology of cervical cancer and human papillomavirus (HPV) is important for practitioners to understand to treat patients accordingly. The correlation between HPV and cervical cancer is a significant concept to learn and teach patients as it is different than other disease processes because HPV is a virus that causes cervical cancer. By using ten references information was gathered to support this presentation. Up to date research from government agencies and scholarly resources was used from the last four years. Research was used to retrieve similar information supporting the pathophysiology, signs and symptoms, and implications of nursing care for patients with HPV and cervical cancer. Cervical intraepithelial neoplasia (CIN) or dysplasia is also included to further explain the progression of the disease. Conclusive evidence was discovered pertaining to prevention of HPV to avoid the progression to cervical cancer. Practitioners, patients and families alike can use this gathered research to better understand this disease process.
