Cervical cancer in the early 20s is very rare.
However, these are the years when, depending upon number of sexual partners, you will be exposing yourself the the virus that causes cervical cancer later in life. It is best to be very selective in your intimacy.

In brief: Low

Always use protection and if sexually active, then should have a pap smear performed by your physician at a regular basis.

If you follow Dr. Abdullah's advice you may have premalignant changes, but if you comply with your personal physician, your chance of an invasive cancer is very low.

In brief: Very low

However, to minimize your risk, use protection and minimize the number of partners you are exposed to.
