DO YOU HAVE CERVICAL CANCER?,GET SCREENED FOR CERVICAL CANCER AND KNOW YOUR STATUS..
When cancer starts in the cervix, it is called cervical cancer, it’s a serious disease that often presents with no symptoms at all in its early stages. However, as the cancer advances, you will likely experience noticeable early warning signs. These include pelvic pain, abnormal bleeding, and urinary abnormalities. It’s recommended that you have these symptoms checked out by a doctor immediately if they develop.
Cervical cancer is highly preventable with regular screening tests and follow-up. It also can be cured when found and treated early. Vaccines are available to protect against the most common cause of cervical cancer, HPV.
The Pap Test is a screening for cervical cancer. The Pap test (or Pap smear) looks for cancers and precancers in the cervix (the lower part of the uterus that opens into the vagina).
When cervical cancer is found early, it is highly treatable and associated with long survival and good quality of life.
