Abstract

Abstract Background: Cervical cancer is a global public health problem with day by day increasing rates. Risky behaviors, lack of knowledge and preventative measures in young women, increase the risks of cervical cancer later in life. Up to date, there is scarcity of study on level of knowledge and perception towards cervical cancer among young women in India. This study was aimed to determine the level of knowledge and perception toward cervical cancer among the women aged between 20 and 30 years living in Metropolitan area of Kolkata, India. Methods: The present study has been carried out among the 300 apparently healthy working women of Kolkata. Only the women have been considered for this cross-sectional study aged between 20 and 30 years living in the metropolitan area of Kolkata. Data for the present study has been collected by using specially prepared and pre-tested schedule. Short term interview has been taken on the cervical cancer knowledge and awareness among the participants of the study. Results: Among the participants 88% of them reported to have known the name of Cervical Cancer, however, 52.27% of them, knew that HPV is a sexually transmitted infection (STI) and that it can cause cervical cancer. Fifty-nine (59%) of the respondent state the contamination occurs through unsafe sex practices. Furthermore, thirty-eight percent (38%) of interviewees mentioned the preventive character of vaccines. Age and education were the two variables that were statistically associated with the outcome. 84% respondents who are aware about the disease have passed graduation or more. Conclusions: The level of knowledge towards cervical cancer and perception of acquiring the disease was poor. Health education interventions are needed to improve the awareness and health seeking behavior in youth women thereby preventing cervical cancer related morbidity and mortality.
