Screening Guidelines for Cervical Cancer

Cervical cancer is the second most common type of cancer among women worldwide. Fortunately, cervical cancer is one of the most successfully treated cancers, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Screening tests offer the best chance to find cervical cancer early, when treatment is more successful. Screenings can also detect abnormal cervical cell changes (precancerous) so they can be treated before they turn into cancer. The most proactive thing you can do to help prevent cervical cancer is to get screened regularly.
