Exploring better care for pregnant women with precancerous cervical cancer

Preliminary stages of cervical cancer occur mainly in women between 25 and 35 years of age. The main risk factor for developing cervical cancer is the human papillomavirus (HPV). Surgery is the treatment of choice. However, such an operation is problematic for pregnant women: since a piece of the uterus is removed, the risk of bleeding and premature birth increases because the cervix shortens and is no longer stable enough. For this reason, affected women have so far had to come for check-ups several times during pregnancy.
