CervingConfidence and Cervical Cancer

Is there an association between women of color and cervical cancer?

CervingConfidence note:

Let’s dissect what’s real and what’s faux.

Women of color are diagnosed at a later stage and therefore have a higher mortality rate. When detected early, cervical cancer and pre-cancer are highly treatable. In fact, up to 93% of cervical cancers are preventable. Yet despite the clear merit of consistent and thorough screening, nearly 20% of women aged 21-65 in the US in 2018 reported they were not up-to-date with cervical cancer screening – that’s 16 million women not following up on their gynecologic health as recommended”.

Cervical Cancer Screening Tests

What does the American Cancer Society note about cervical cancer screening tests?

In Cervical Cancer: Detection, Diagnosis, and Staging – Screening Tests for Cervical Cancer the American Cancer Society note:

“The best way to find cervical cancer early is to have regular screening tests. The tests for cervical cancer screening are the HPV test and the Pap test. These tests can be done alone or at the same time (called a co-test). Regular screening has been shown to prevent cervical cancers and save lives. The most important thing to remember is to get screened regularly, no matter which test you get”.
