How long does it take for cervical cancer to develop?By Chalida Jones on December 2nd, 2011
Question by dominican4ever: How long does it take for cervical cancer to develop?
Due to lack of insurance I have not had a pap smear in over 2 years. I have a lot of weird symptoms when it comes to my period and pelvic pain and stuff. My last pap smear was normal and it was done a little over 2 years ago. I was wondering how long does it take to develop cervical cancer and how fast does it grow. Thanks.

It takes a while. If you have HPV and the body doesn’t clear it, the virus will start to cause abnormal changes in cervical cells.
You need to see your gynecologist.
