What every woman should know…
- Cervical cancer is highly preventable. Screening and vaccination are key.
- Cervical cancer is caused by a common virus. The Human papillomavirus (HPV).
- Every 2½ hours a woman dies from cervical cancer in the United States, despite it being the only cancer with a single-known cause - HPV - which makes it virtually 100% preventable.
- A Pap test looks for cell changes on the cervix that could lead to cervical cancer.
- Using an HPV test in conjunction with a Pap test can better identify women at risk for cancer.
- HPV vaccines that prevent 70% of cervical cancer are now available.
