Cervical Cancer is a major health concern worldwide for women. Human papillomavirus (HPV) is one of the major health risk factors known to causing cervical cancer. Early prevention and detection are key to preventing the cancer. There are vaccinations to prevent HPV and ways to detect abnormal cells by having a Papanicolaou cytology (Pap) test. The underlying signs and symptoms, pathophysiology, and implications for nursing care are discussed within the poster.
