HPV and Cervical Cancer
Audrey Cornelius, PA-C, Oncology Physician Assistant
January is Cervical Cancer Awareness Month. Cervical Cancer is primarily caused by HPV—this stands for Human Papilloma Virus. Currently, in the United States alone, there are 80 million people infected with HPV, and 14 million more become infected each year.
