January is Cervical Health Awareness Month

Nearly 13,000 women are diagnosed with cervical cancer each year in the United States, but this disease is preventable with vaccinations and regular screenings (Pap and HPV tests). 

Visit your nearest Planned Parenthood for more information on cervical cancer prevention, and to receive a screening. 

Anyone with a cervix can get cervical cancer and prevention through early detection is key.

Every day, 35 women across the U.S. are diagnosed with invasive cervical cancer, and many hundreds more are diagnosed with precursors that could lead to it.
