Harford Health Dept. urges women to get annual cervical cancer screenings

Out of all cancers that affect women, the Harford County Health Department says cervical cancer is one of the most preventable. The best way to find cervical cancer early is to have regular screening with a Pap test.

Pap tests are covered by most health insurance plans and if women are not insured, the Harford County Health Department's Breast and Cervical Cancer Program can provide eligible women with no cost screening services. The CSP can help close the screening gap for women without insurance. "According to the most recent NY state data (2014), only about 65 percent of women without insurance have had a Pap test within the past three years, compared to roughly 85 percent of women with health insurance".

"Cervical cancer is usually a slow process that starts with abnormal changes known as dysplasia, and eventually cancer cells begin to form and spread more deeply into the tissue of the cervix and surrounding areas", said Daniel Gottschall, MD, OBGYN, Chief Clinical Officer, St. Vincent's Medical Center. Screening can also find cancer early, when treatment may be most effective.
