Get Screened for Cervical Cancer and Take Control of Your Health
Why Cervical Cancer Screening is Important
Cervical cancer affects thousands of women every year, but with early detection, it can be highly treatable. Cervical cancer usually starts with abnormal changes in the cells lining the cervix. Regular screening tests, like Pap smears and HPV testing, can identify these changes and allow for timely intervention before cancer develops.
Understanding Cervical Cancer
Cervical cancer is primarily caused by certain strains of the human papillomavirus (HPV) – a common sexually transmitted infection. While HPV is very common, most women will clear the infection naturally, but for some, the virus can persist and lead to cervical cancer.
Several factors can increase your risk of developing cervical cancer, including:
- Lack of regular cervical screenings
- Infection with high-risk HPV strains
- Weakened immune system
- Early sexual activity
- Multiple sexual partners
Signs and Symptoms
In its early stages, cervical cancer typically doesn’t cause noticeable signs or symptoms. That’s why regular screening is so vital. As the disease progresses, symptoms may include:
- Abnormal vaginal bleeding, including bleeding between periods, after intercourse, or after menopause
- Unusual vaginal discharge
- Pelvic pain or discomfort during intercourse
The Importance of Regular Screenings
By getting regular screenings, you can catch any changes in the cervix before they become cancerous. Early detection allows for more treatment options and better chances of a full recovery. Make cervical cancer screening a priority in your healthcare routine, even if you feel healthy and have no symptoms.
