Human Papillomavirus (HPV) is the virus which causes genital warts

license, gives excellent protection for teenagers and women who have
never come across the virus before.

Oncology is the area of medicine that deals with the study and

The cervix is the neck of the womb and is located at the top of the
vagina. Cervical cancer develops if the cells of the cervix become
abnormal and grow out of control. If abnormal cells are caught
early, which they often are through the cervical screening programme,
cancer can often be prevented or treated.
There are various types of ovarian cancer. The most common type
affects the cells forming the surface layer of the ovaries, called
epithelial cells. Epithelial cell cancer makes up 90% of cases of
ovarian cancer. The other types of ovarian cancer are mostly germ
cell cancers, which arise from the egg-making cells of the ovary.
The uterus (womb) is part of the female reproductive system and is
located at the top of the vagina. It is where a baby grows during
pregnancy. The lining of the uterus is called the endometrium and is
shed each month as part of your period. Most cancers of the uterus
develop in the lining and are called endometrial cancer. Cancer of
the uterus can also be called uterine cancer.
Early Pregnancy Unit
Miscarriage refers to the premature end of a pregnancy before the
developing baby is able to survive outside the womb. Miscarriage can
occur during the first or second trimester, before 20 weeks. Most
occur in the first 12 weeks of pregnancy and most miscarriages are
unexpected and isolated events. About 15%-20% of recognized
pregnancies end this way.
An ectopic pregnancy is a pregnancy that grows in a location other
than the lining of the uterus. Most ectopic pregnancies (95%) occur
within a fallopian tube. Rare locations include on the cervix, in
the abdomen, or on an ovary. An ectopic pregnancy cannot survive
because only the uterus can support the growth of a foetus. If an
ectopic pregnancy bursts a fallopian tube, it is a medical emergency
that threatens the life of the mother. Ectopic pregnancies occur
with a frequency of 1 in 100-200 diagnosed pregnancies. Most ectopic
pregnancies occur because the fallopian tube is not functioning
A Colposcopy is a procedure in which a special magnifying device
with a light called a colposcope is used to visually examine the
vagina and cervix. This procedure is normally carried out after a
smear result is found to be abnormal as it gives more information
about abnormal cells that could lead to cancer. The procedure can be
used to direct the location of where a tissue biopsy should be done
and it can also be used to monitor treatment of cervix
