Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

Cervical cancer is a cancer that targets the lower entrance of the uterus, which is known as the cervix. It is most commonly caused by HPV which is a sexually transmitted virus. HPV causes the production of 2 proteins known as E6 and E7 proteins which turn off some tumor suppressor genes in the body. Regular pap tests with a family doctor can detect abnormal cell changes within the cervix area that is caused by the HPV virus. I would choose to vaccinate my teen because the Gardasil vaccine is recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and other well established organizations. However, to fully prevent the risk of Cervical cancer, it is best to encourage healthier living habits such as not smoking, limiting contraceptive use, limiting the number of sexual partners and preventing pregnancy at an early age. 

Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
