Cervical Health Awareness Month 2020

“Each year, more than 13,000 women are diagnosed with cervical cancer in the United States. Yet cervical cancer is one of the most preventable cancers today. In most cases cervical cancer can be prevented through early detection and treatment of abnormal cell changes that occur in the cervix years before cervical cancer develops”.

Postmenopause

Postmenopause, do women need cervical screening?

Yes. Unfortunately, just because we have been through menopause, does not mean we can stop regular cervical screening. In Cervical Cancer Overview: What Is Cervical Cancer? the NCCC explain:

Cervical Health Awareness Month 2020

“Cervical cancer tends to occur during midlife. It is most frequently diagnosed in women between the ages of 35 and 44. It rarely affects women under age 20, and more than 15 percent of diagnoses are made in women older than 65. But in women over 65, cancer typical occurs in women who were not receiving regular screening”.
