Cervical cancer is curable. However, there is no guarantee that it will never come back following treatment. This is why doctors often use the term “remission” to describe cancer that has gone away and is no longer causing symptoms.
Successful treatment of cervical cancer depends on several factors:
Research shows that only 10% to 15% of people with early-stage cervical cancer experience a recurrence following treatment. Cancer that is advanced and has spread throughout the body has a lower chance of going into remission.
Cervical cancer is one of the most preventable forms of cancer. Getting the HPV vaccine early and having regular screening tests are the most important steps you can take to lower your risk for cervical cancer.
Consult your doctor for more information on cervical cancer prevention and treatment. Get the HPV vaccine at the participating Watsons branch near you.
