HPV/ Cervical Cancer Awareness Month

The American Cancer Society states that in 2017 about 12,820 new cases of invasive cervical cancer will be diagnosed and about 4,210 women will die from cervical cancer. Cervical cancer is cancer that forms around the cervix and is one of the most common cancers affecting U.S. women. The Human Papillomavirus (HPV) is a major cause that is found in about 99% of cervical cancers. The FDHA’s Dr. Sharon Bent- Harley states that ways to prevent cervical cancer includes getting children vaccinated against HPV and for women to begin early / routine cervical cancer screenings beginning at age 21.
