So quick facts okay?
- HPV is the abbreviation for human papillomavirus and roughly 99.7 per cent of cervical cancer cases are caused by this virus. *Scary right*
- Cervical cancer (CC) is a disease where cells in the cervix develop abnormally, and vaccinating against cervical cancer may reduce deaths by two thirds!
Why I’m talking about all this, is cause……………………………………………………………………………….
