Abstract

Cervical cancer is caused by infection with the human papilloma virus which can infect the genitals, anus,
throat, mouth and cells on the surface of the skin. Cervical cancer is often late so that it can cause death,
so efforts are needed to reduce the risk factors for cervical cancer, namely through primary prevention
efforts. The purpose of this study was to determine the relationship between primary factors and cervical
cancer prevention behavior in adolescent girls. The sample in this study were 77 young women who were
taken by technique purposive sampling. The research design used was an observational analysis using a
cross sectional approach and analyzed using chi-square. The results of this study illustrate that there is a
relationship between knowledge, attitudes and social support with cervical cancer prevention behavior in
adolescent girls. So we need efforts to reduce cervical cancer risk factors, namely through primary prevention
efforts, by increasing outreach activities in the community to carry out a healthy lifestyle.
