Cigarette smoking and cervical cancer: meta-analysis and critical review of recent studies.

​Cigarette smoking may heighten a woman's risk of having cervical cancer.

This study investigated the link between cigarette smoking and cervical cancer development risk by meta-analysis. A scientist from the North Carolina University School of Medicine, USA, conducted a meticulous meta-analysis on data drawn from eligible studies.

The researcher noticed that women who smoked cigarettes were more prone to develop cervical cancer than their counterparts who had never smoked a stick of cigarette. Cervical cancer risk was 42-46% higher in smokers than in non-smokers in this study. The findings of this study reveal that cigarette smoking may increase a woman's vulnerability to cervical cancer.
