Did you know that

  • HPV (Human Papillomavirus) is the main reason for cervical cancer
  • Nearly everybody will be infected with HPV at some point in their lifetime. For some, the infection results in cell changes that in some cases may progress to cervical cancer
  • Severe cell changes can be treated to avoid cancer
  • You can’t know yourself whether you are HPV-infected or not; however, you can be tested
  • The self-sampling test is easy to use and the test result is as reliable as a pap smear taken by a doctor
