What you need to know about Cervical Cancer and HPV
January is Cervical Cancer Awareness Month, a time to raise awareness about the importance of early detection and treatment of cervical cancer. By getting vaccinated against HPV, getting regular screening tests, and knowing the signs and symptoms of cervical cancer, you can take steps to protect yourself from this disease.
Through screening, vaccinations, and treatment, cervical cancer is a preventable disease. Pap smears play an important role in the early detection and prevention of cervical cancer. Encourage the women in your life to be screened annually or every three years.
