Never Covering Sex, Can Cervical Cancer Attack?
Visual inspection of acetic acid (IVA) is one of the most commonly recommended tests for all women who have had sexual intercourse. The goal is to see an indication of cervical cancer caused by human papilloma virus (HPV). Dr Boy Busmar, SpOG, from Friendship Hospital said HPV is generally spread through sexual contact and because cervical cancer in the early stages is completely asymptomatic, the only way to know the existence of the disease is only through the test. Then how to someone who has never had sex, is it possible for the cancer remains?
“” In theory I can not. There are studies that look at people who never have intercourse the incidence of cancer is very small, “” said Dr. Boy when met at RS Persahabatan, Rawamangun, East Jakarta, Monday (25/4/2016).
