Cervical Cancer Awareness
There are over 13,000 women diagnosed with cervical cancer each year in the United States alone. In fact, even with early detection, it is estimated that there will be 13,240 new cases of invasive cervical cancer detected in 2018. In the past, cervical cancer was a leading cause of death for American women, however, it can now be prevented with the use of the Pap Smear and the HPV vaccination. Cervical cancer generally occurs in middle aged women, but it can still present itself in younger or older women who have not been screened regularly.
