Cervical cancer develops in the tissues on the surface of the cervix (the passageway that connects the uterus and vagina). Women in the early stages of cervical cancer may not exhibit any symptoms, however, as the cancer progresses women might experience vaginal bleeding between periods, unusually heavy or long periods, bleeding after sex or douching, and bleeding after a woman has gone through menopause. The main risk factor for developing cervical cancer is the human papillomavirus (HPV), which is a group of viruses passed through sexual contact. HPV is the cause of almost all cervical cancer cases. Other risk factors may include smoking, long-term use of birth control pills and lack of regular pap tests.
