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.

Several risk factors increase the risk of developing cervical cancer: The most important risk factor for cervical cancer is infection by the human papillomavirus (HPV), a group of more than 150 viruses.

If you have insurance, talk to your doctor about cervical cancer screening. The American Cancer Society, the American Academy of Pediatrics, as well as Planned Parenthood, support ensuring that all young people under 26 years old get the HPV vaccine. Ask your health care provider for more details. Women who smoke are about twice as likely to get cervical cancer compared to non-smokers, and cervical cancer is more often found in women over the age of 30. Treatment is also available for cervical cancer, which, when caught early, has a almost 100 percent five-year survival rate.
