by Darra McMullen,
Women’s Health Network Writer/Researcher

Author’s Note:  Due to December’s “holiday crush”, the planned input from a cervical cancer expert could not be arranged until later in January.  The results of that interview will be made available ASAP, but for now, please enjoy the following article, which contains a lot of relevant, useful, basic cervical cancer information.  The article originally appeared just a few years ago on the GHWCC website; the information is still accurate and helpful, and if you missed the article the first time around, you now have a second chance to review it while we wait to hear the latest news from a cervical cancer expert – coming soon.
