Fewer Cervical Cancer Tests After HPV Vaccine?

MONDAY, Oct. 17, 2016 (HealthDay News) -- Women who've been vaccinated against human papillomavirus (HPV) likely need fewer cervical cancer screenings, a new study argues.
Just how often a woman needs a cervical cancer screening depends on the type ofvaccine she had, the researchers said.

Women vaccinated with earlier versions of the HPV vaccine -- which protect against the two worst cancer-causing strains of the sexually transmitted virus -- only need cervical cancer screening every five years starting at age 25 or 30, the study concluded.
Women who've received the updatedvaccine, which protects against seven cancer-causing strains of HPV, need screening even less often. The researchers recommend testing these women every 10 years starting at age 30 to 35 and ending at age 65.

  1. Surgery seems to be the most commonly opted treatment option to remove the cancerous cells from the body of women to get rid of cervical cancer and you can always get a second opinion for cancer treatment in India if you want to be reassured about the treatment plans.
