Despite thousands of women being diagnosed with cervical cancer each year, this type of cancer may not be as well known among female cancers. However, education about cervical cancer is vital, because the disease is entirely preventable with proper testing and vaccinations. Pap tests and HPV screenings, as well as HPV vaccinations during teenage years may effectively help prevent cervical cancer from forming and spreading to others. Throughout January, women and men can get the facts about cervical cancer and cervical health in general, and women can use this as an opportunity to schedule a wellness checkup with their gynecologists.
