Knocked Up Podcast: Cervical Cancer Screening and HPV

Posted on 20 December 2019

What is the cervix, exactly? How do cancer cells develop there? What can we do to help prevent that from happening? And how can we detect abnormalities as early as possible?

We’ll discuss all that and more in this episode of Knocked Up, including the strains of HPV that cause cervical cancer; the difference between HPV and HSV; how cervical-cancer screening has changed in recent years (it’s not called a Pap smear anymore); how the LLETZ/LEEP procedure works; and more.
