Cervical Cancer occurs when abnormal cancer cells develop in the cervix due to exposure to the human papillomavirus (HPV), however not all types of HPV cause cervical cancer. Cervical cancer is the second most common type of cancer in women and the most greatly affects the age groups 35-39 and 60-64. It is frequently found in early stages through the use of pap test. Cervical cancer is commonly treated with chemotherapy, radiation, and surgery to remove pelvic lymph nodes with or without the removal of the ovaries and fallopian tubes. In the most severe cases, hysterectomies may be necessary. Many believe that the HPV vaccine protects against the two types of HPV that cause cervical cancer. Stage 4 cervical cancer is the most advanced stage of this cancer where it has spread to other organs. Stage 4 includes subgroups 4A and 4B. Stage 4A is defined by cancer that has spread to nearby organs (bladder or rectum) while stage 4B is characterized by cancer that has spread to further organs such as the lungs. Since stage 4 is a very progressive stage of cervical cancer, surgery, radiotherapy, and chemotherapy (or a combination of the three) is typically used in treatment.
