FAQs

Cervical cancer is caused by certain types of human papilloma virus (HPV). A new vaccine, developed in Australia, is the only vaccine that may help guard against diseases caused by HPV Types 16 and 18, which cause 70 percent of cervical cancer cases and HPV Types 6 and 11, which cause 90 percent of genital warts cases.

HPV is extremely common in our community and is easily spread. For most people the virus goes away on its own. When the virus does not go away, then it may lead to the development of cervical cancer. It often takes 10 years to develop cervical cancer.

A Cervical Screening Test should be done every 5 years. It may detect the presence of human papilloma virus and if required further testing may identify pre-cancerous cells. These cells may be successfully removed and therefore prevent the development of cervical cancer.

Regular Cervical Screening Tests to the age of 70-74 and breast checks including mammography are recommended for menopausal and post menopausal women. It is also recommended that you discuss with a doctor the need for bone density testing to check for any signs of osteoporosis together with the need for any calcium supplementation. Your cholesterol, blood glucose and blood pressure should also be monitored.

The average age of menopause is 50 to 51 years of age, but in some women it could happen earlier or later.
