January is Recognized as National Cervical Cancer Awareness month

An important aspect to consider when it comes to your health is to schedule your preventative checkup, which should include a cervical cancer screening.

Statistics show that approximately 13,000 women in the U.S. are diagnosed with cervical cancer each year. 

Cervical cancer forms in tissues of the cervix. 

Cervical cancer screening is used to find changes in the cells of the cervix that could lead to cancer. Screening includes the Pap test and, for some women, testing for human papillomavirus (HPV).

For guidelines on when and how often you should be screened, see the Cervical Cancer Screening FAQ
