Cervical Health Awareness Month

Sponsor: National Cervical Cancer Coalition http://www.nccconline.org
 
Cervical Health Awareness Month is a chance to raise awareness about how women
can protect themselves from HPV (human papillomavirus) and cervical cancer.  HPV is
the most common sexually transmitted disease. It’s also a major cause of cervical
cancer. About 79 million Americans currently have HPV.
Many people with HPV don’t know they are infected.
 
The good news?  HPV can be prevented with the HPV vaccine.
Cervical cancer can often be prevented with regular screening tests (called Pap
tests) and follow-up care. A Pap testcan help detect abnormal (changed) cells before
they turn into cancer. Most deaths from cervical cancer can be prevented if women get
regular Pap tests and follow-up care.
How can Cervical Health Awareness Month make a difference?
We can use this opportunity to spread the word about important steps women can take
to stay healthy.


Get your well-woman visit this year!

Health care reform law covers well-woman visits and cervical cancer screening. This means that, depending on your insurance, women can get these services at no cost to them.

Parents -It is important for your pre-teens to get the

HPV vaccine.
