Cervix Cancer / Cervical Cancer - How to prevent?

Primary prevention of cervical cancer is now available in the form of vaccines. In Singapore, the three commercially available vaccines are Cervarix, Gardasil and Gardasil9. The vaccines have been shown to be efficacious in protection against  high risk HPV subtypes such as HPV 16 and 18, which cause up to 70% of cervical cancers. In Singapore , the recommendations for cervical cancer vaccine is for ages 9-26 years old. All women of reproductive age who are sexually active are encouraged to have Pap smear screening.

However, as some women may still develop cervical cancer after vaccination, Pap smear test screening is still recommended.
