Poonam Pandey died of cervical cancer: Recently, the news of Poonam Pandey's death has shocked everyone. Even a few hours after the news of the death was posted, it is difficult for the fans to believe whether it is true or a joke or whether someone has hacked their ID. However, after the manager's confirmation, the news was confirmed that Poonam is no longer with us.

Along with the post, the reason for Poonam Pandey's death has also been revealed. The post said that she died of cervical cancer. In such a situation, it is very important for everyone, especially women, to know what type of cancer it is and how it can be prevented.

Let us tell you that when the Finance Minister presented the budget on February 1, cervical cancer was also mentioned in it. Not only mentioned but Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman also announced vaccination to prevent it. In which emphasis has been laid on free vaccination of girls aged 9-14 years.

Cervical cancer is the second deadliest disease for women worldwide. This cancer starts from the vagina and spreads very rapidly from bladder, rectum to lungs. This is a cancer that occurs in the cervix. Before this it is important to know what the cervix is. The cervix is ​​the lower part of the uterus, which is connected to the vagina. Most cases of cervical cancer are caused by human papillomavirus (HPV) infection. HPV is a virus that is spread from one person to another during sexual intercourse.

People who are more sexually active are slightly more likely to get HPV infection. However, our body's immune system plays an important role in reducing these infections. If a person's immune system is weak then the chances of getting this infection increases significantly.

This virus is spread through sexual contact (vaginal, anal and oral) and can cause cancer. According to the Cleveland Clinic, HPV is a common virus that can affect different parts of the body.

There are more than 100 types of this virus, some of which can cause warts on the face, hands, feet etc. There are about 30 types of this virus, which can affect the vulva, vagina, cervix, penis, anus etc. This virus takes a long time to enter the body and cause cancer.

Symptoms of Cervical Cancer

Ways to prevent cervical cancer

Recently in the Budget 2024 presented by the Finance Minister, the government will promote cervical cancer vaccine to prevent cervical cancer cases. Let us tell you that HPV vaccine is a vaccine for cervical cancer.
Human papillomavirus vaccines are vaccines that prevent infection caused by certain types of human papillomavirus. Available HPV vaccines protect against two, four, or nine types of HPV. All HPV vaccines protect against HPV types 16 and 18, which pose the greatest risk of cervical cancer.

To prevent cervical cancer, all girls aged 9 to 14 should get the HPV vaccine. This vaccine can protect against cancer up to 98 percent. By getting vaccinated, the immunity of young girls increases rapidly and the risk of human papillomavirus (HPV) is reduced.
