  • Reduce your chances of getting infected with the human papillomavirus (HPV) by avoiding sexual contact with multiple partners without adequate protection. 
  • Get a Pap test done every 3 years as timely detection can help in curing this condition.
  • Quit smoking right away. Nicotine and other components found in cigarettes may pass through the blood stream and get deposited in the cervix where they can alter the growth of cervical cells. Smoking can also suppress your immune system making it more susceptible to HPV infections.
  • Eat a healthy diet rich in fruits, vegetables, and whole grains.
  • Maintain a healthy weight as being overweight or obese increases the risk of insulin resistance, which may lead to type 2 diabetes and increase the risk of developing cancer.
