PPSNE recognizes cervical health awareness month in January

Patty Aguilar | 13 January, 2018, 16:09

Of all cancers that affect women, cervical cancer is one of the most preventable.

According to the latest NY state data, women without health insurance are much less likely to be screened for cervical cancer (64%) when compared to women with health insurance (86%).

"Cervical cancer is most often found in women who have never had a Pap test or who have not had one in the past five years, so it's especially important for these women to get screened", said Schuyler. The best way to find cervical cancer early is to have regular screening with a Pap test. It is a covered service under most health plans, including Medicaid plans and plans participating in the New York State of Health.

As the leading women's health care provider in CT and Rhode Island, Planned Parenthood of Southern New England is proud to offer preventive health care services to help people make the best decisions for their health.

To find out more about the cancer screening services provided, women can call the Harford County Health Department at 410-612-1780.

You can prevent cervical cancer with the right test at the right time! "We encourage women not to delay their screening, and to talk to their doctor or call the Cancer Services Program". Anti-cancer vaccines have been found effective in preventing the two strains of HPV most frequently found in cervical cancer. Ask your health care provider for more details.

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

In addition to cervical cancer screening, the CSP also provides free breast and colorectal cancer screening to eligible New York State residents.
