Summary of "Anticancer effect of bacteria on cervical cancer: Molecular aspects and therapeutic implications."

Cervical cancer is the second common cancer and the third leading cause of cancer deaths among women in less developed countries. It has been indicated that changes in vaginal microbiome play an important role in the occurrence and development of cervical cancer. However, studies have shown that probiotics play an effective role in fighting cancer by affecting pathogenic bacteria, inducing cancer cells apoptosis, and other anticancer activities. Therefore, the purpose of the present study is reviewing the anticancer effect of cervicovaginal bacteria and their potential for cervical cancer treatment.

A specialty which deals with the interrelationship of physical, psychological, social, behavioral, and ethical aspects of cancer. Psycho-oncology examines the behavioral and psychosocial factors that may influence the course of the disease, cancer risk, prevention, and detection.

Morphological abnormalities of the cervical EPITHELIUM, usually revealed in PAP SMEAR, which do not meet the criteria for squamous CERVICAL INTRAEPITHELIAL NEOPLASIA or SQUAMOUS CELL CARCINOMAS of the CERVIX . It may be a sign of infection with certain types of human papillomavirus (HPV).or sign of a benign (not cancer) growth, such as a cyst or polyp or, in menopausal women, of low hormone levels. More testing, such as HPV test, may be needed.
