A new national survey exploring what women know about breast and cervical cancer screenings found that the vast majority don’t know when and how often they should get screened — even if they think they do.

Taking the best possible care of yourself can sometimes feel hard — but it doesn’t have to. Confused? Worried about cost? We’ve got you. Planned Parenthood health centers provide expert, supportive, confidential care — no matter what.

Planned Parenthood knows that women sometimes put off cancer screenings due to time, cost, anxiety, or not knowing when it’s time. Friends and family can help by passing along information about the importance of early detection and where to go for an exam, such as a Planned Parenthood health center.

Cancer screenings are important for everyone, and we’re here to help you understand new recommendations about well woman visits, Pap tests, and breast exams. Make an appointment at your nearest Planned Parenthood to learn more: https://www.plannedparenthood.org/health-center or call 1-888-743-7526.
