Cervical Health Awareness Month

Cervical Cancer is one of the most common cancers found in women between the ages of 20 to 65.  Over 12,000 women get diagnosed with cervical cancer each year and nearly 4,000 deaths.  In the last 40 years cervical cancer has decreased by 50% due to regular screenings including the Pap test.

 

These annual screenings have saved many women’s lives and is the best way to diagnosing any irregular cell growth in the cervix.  Prevention is key and is crucial for all women to get screened each year to reduce your risks.
