Actor-model Poonam Pandey died on Thursday night due to cervical cancer. Pandey’s manager said that the actor was diagnosed in the last stage of the dreaded disease a few days back. Cervical cancer is the second most common cancer among women in India.
Cervical cancer, which is mostly contracted via sexual intercourse, is a type of cancer that affects the cells lining the cervix, which is the lower part of the uterus that connects to the vagina. The human papillomavirus (HPV) is the leading cause of cervical cancer. The virus can be easily passed from one person to another during sex and causes no symptoms.
Symptoms may take years to develop after having sex with someone who may be carrying an HPV infection. This makes it hard to detect and know when one first gets infected.
Poonam Pandey, known for her bold photos and videos, made her film debut with “Nasha” in 2013 and was recently seen on Kangana Ranaut’s ‘Lock Upp’ in 2022
However, many people on social media have doubts that Poonam Pandey died and they think that her official account might be hacked.
“Cervical cancer patients don’t die suddenly, out of nowhere. Just checked Poonam Pandey’s Instagram. Until four days ago, she was fine, posting glamorous media.
If she is indeed dead, it needs to be investigated. There were reports of a troubled relationship with her husband in the past that involved the police.
And I hope this is not a publicity stunt disguised as creating awareness for cervical cancer, which would be unethical and irresponsible, especially when dealing with sensitive issues like health awareness.” A tweet posted on X in the name of @theskindoctor13
Now, it’s a matter of investigation how the actor died.
