Sexually Active Teens Run a Greater Risk of Developing Cervical Cancer
A new study shows teenage girls are twice as likely to develop cervical cancer if they choose to engage in intercourse at an early age.
Researchers are concerned about the sex lives of young ladies as they are very vulnerable to HPV, which can set off most cases of cervical cancer.
Dr. Silvia Francheschi, who oversaw the recent study, says women who lost their virginity at age 20 are more at risk than women who waited until they were at least 25.
Early detection and treatment can potentially prevent about 75 percent of cervical cancers advancing in women. (Daily Mail)
