NARANJO HERNANDEZ, Laura; VILLAFUERTE REINANTE, Janet; RODRIGUEZ MARQUEZ, Aymara  and  ALONSO VILA, Yisel. Conditions that Contribute to the Development of Cervical Cancer in Adolescence. Rev. Finlay [online]. 2023, vol.13, n.2, pp.209-215.  Epub June 30, 2023. ISSN 2221-2434.

Adolescence is a human life period characterized by various biological, physical and emotional changes that influence the later adult life. Cervical cancer has medical, socioeconomic, and human significance. It is the most curable, easily diagnosed and even the most preventable of all cancers. Its negative effects are often devastating for the women’ general state of health who acquire it. A bibliographic review of articles was carried out from January to December 2021. The scientific databases used were: Pubmed, Scielo and the Google Scholar search engine. The search was made in national and international articles, with full texts, these were subjected to a critical reading using as theoretical methods: historical-logical analysis and analysis-synthesis and among the empirical ones: documentary analysis. The objective of this review is to show the biological and behavioral conditions that favor the development of cervical cancer in adolescence.

Keywords : uterine cervical neoplasms; disease prevention; adolescent.
