Cervical Cancer

Cervical cancer is one of the most preventable cancers. Go for regular Pap tests and, if needed, return for follow-up of abnormal results.


Cervical Cancer Screening

Screening can detect changes in a cervix that can lead to cancer.

People aged 25 to 69 years of age and with a cervix who have had any sexual skin–to-skin contact (sexual intercourse, intimate touching, and/or oral sexual contact with a partner) need a Pap test every 3 years.
