“Cervical cancer is curable”, Almost half of all cancers are curable cancer more than 75% of the cancers prevalent in India, are preventable in nature. Early diagnosis is the key. While people’s awareness of signs and symptoms of cancer helps in early – detection and potential treatment. Quasi experimental one group pre-test post-test design was used. 60 participants were taken by non probability convenient sampling. The collected data was organized, tabulated and analyzed based on the objectives of the study by using descriptive and inferential statistics. mean score and SD for the pre test was 10.90±3.07. The mean score and SD for the post-test was 22.73±2.69, Mean standard deviation and mean score percentage values are compared and ‘t’ value is applied at 5% level of significance. In addition the calculated ‘p’ values for all the areas of knowledge regarding prevention of cervical cancer was 0.000 which is ideal for any population. The calculated value was 26.16 for the overall knowledge regarding prevention of cervical cancer which is much higher than the tabulated value at 5% level of significance which is statistically acceptable level of significance. Hence it is statistically interpreted that the planned teaching regarding prevention of cervical cancer was effective. Thus the H1 is accepted. Hence it is interoperated that the knowledge score of prevention of cervical cancer is not associated with demographic variables.
