Health Department Tells Women To Get Cervical Cancer Screenings

January is Cervical Health Awareness Month and the Cancer Services Program (CSP) of Ontario, Seneca, Wayne and Yates counties wants to raise awareness that cervical cancer is preventable!

With women older than 20 years old making up the majority of cervical cancer cases, Dr. Williams-Brown says that women at any age after 20 should be conscious of their health. "There are usually no symptoms, but thanks largely to the increased use of the Pap test, the cervical cancer death rate has declined by more than 50 percent over the last 40 years".

Women can contact the health department at 410-612-1780 to find out more about the cancer screening services provided. Research has shown that most cervical cancers are caused by HPV.

Understanding the risk factors and detection methods for cervical cancer are crucial to early detection.

Out of all cancers that affect women, the Harford County Health Department says cervical cancer is one of the most preventable.

If abnormalities are detected in the test result, it is followed by a Human Papillomavirus (HPV) screening. Health official say cervical cancer screenings, called Pap tests can prevent cancer by finding abnormal cells before they become cancer. Anti-cancer vaccines have been found effective in preventing the two strains of HPV most frequently found in cervical cancer. It can also be successfully treated when found early, according to the release.
