According to Bermudez, Bhatla, and Leung (2015), cervical cancer is the fourth most common female malignancy in both incidence and mortality. Fortunately, the death rate of cervical cancer has decreased in the United States over the past 30 years. It is well known that human papillomavirus, commonly known as HPV, is the most cause of cervical cancer.
What are some prevention strategies related to HPV? What are the US Preventative Services Task Force (USPSTF) current recommendations for screening for cervical cancer in women ages 21 to 65 years? What are risk factors for acquiring HPV?
