Patient Education Tip of the Month: Cervical Health Awareness

January is Cervical Health Awareness Month. Cervical cancer screening is used to find changes in the cells of the cervix that could lead to cancer. Screening includes the Pap test and, for some women, testing for human papillomavirus (HPV). Cervical cancer screening is important because it usually takes three to seven years for high-grade cervical changes to become cancer.
Regular screening gives patients and ob-gyns time to find cervical cell changes and discuss possible treatment before the cell changes become cancer.

For guidelines on when and how often to screen, read the Cervical Cancer Screening FAQ.
