Cervical Cancer

For over 50 years, routine use of the Pap test to screen for cervical cancer has reduced deaths from the disease by more than 70%.  It is hoped with wide-spread vaccination and improved screening strategies, fewer and fewer women will be affected by cervical cancer and pre-cancers in the future.

The Foundation for Women’s Cancer has divided information about cervical cancer into two sections, the first with information about screening and prevention, and the second for women who have experienced a diagnosis of cervical cancer or pre-cancer.

We always are eager to hear your opinions and try to answer your questions, though we cannot provide specific medical advice. Please contact us at info@foundationforwomenscancer.org.
