Bollywood Actor and model Poonam Pandey dies at the age 32 due to Cervical cancer. The information was shared by her manager on the official Instagram page.

“This morning is a tough one for us. Deeply saddened to inform you that we have lost our beloved Poonam to cervical cancer. Every living form that ever came in contact with her was met with pure love and kindness. In this time of grief, we would request for privacy while we remember her fondly for all that we shared (sic).” The statement read. 

Many people are concerned after seeing Panday’s Instagram post. Some comments on her post question whether the account has been hacked or whether this is a cervical cancer awareness campaign. However, Parul Chawla’s management told India Today that she was diagnosed with cancer some time ago, but it was at an advanced stage. Her hometown of UP is where the funeral will take place for the most part. There are still details we do not have.

2013 saw Poonam Pandey make her screen debut in Bollywood with the movie Nasha. Her last appearance was on the reality series “Lock Upp.”

What is Cervical Cancer? How it can be prevented?

Cervical cancer is a growth of cells that starts in the cervix. The cervix is the lower part of the uterus that connects to the vagina.

The human papillomavirus, or HPV, is responsible for most cervical malignancies and comes in different strains. HPV is a common infection that’s passed through intercourses. The immune system of the body usually stops HPV from causing harm when it is exposed. But in a small percentage of cases, the virus lives for years. This plays a part in the process by which some cervical cells develop into cancerous cells.

Getting vaccinated against HPV infection and having screening tests can lower your risk of developing cervical cancer.

Surgery to remove the cancer is frequently used as the initial treatment for cervical cancer. Medication to destroy the cancer cells may be one of the other treatments. Chemotherapy and medications for targeted therapy are possible options. A powerful energy beam coupled with radiation therapy is another option. Radiation therapy is occasionally used with low-dose chemotherapy.
