HPV and Cervical Cancer

When left untreated, HPV may develop into cervical cancer. Cervical cancer is the tenth most common cancer among Singaporean women. A new case is diagnosed every two days, and one woman loses the fight against cervical cancer every five days in Singapore12. While the disease is most common among women aged 45-54, all ages are at risk once they are sexually active12.
