Cervical Cancer Risk Assessment

Cervical cancer was once one of the most common causes of cancer death among women in the U.S., but today many cases of cervical cancer are prevented through widespread use of the Pap test.

Vaccines are also available to prevent infection by certain strains of human papillomavirus (HPV), a major cause of cervical cancer, as well as many other cancers.

According to the American Cancer Society (ACS), cervical cancer tends to develop in midlife. Most women are diagnosed with cervical cancer before the age of 50. About 3 in 20 are older than 65. Early cervical cancer and precancerous conditions of the cervix have no symptoms. This tool will help you find out your relative risk for cervical cancer. This tool is valid for women between the ages of 21 and 69 who have had sexual intercourse at least once and who have not had a hysterectomy with removal of the cervix.
