Take action now to stop cervical cancer

January Is

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. "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". It can also be used as a screening test on its own, and, in one recent study, it was almost twice as effective as the Pap test in detecting early cervical cancer. Those cells can then be removed before cancer starts. The CSP offers these tests to uninsured women, ages 40 and older.

In the United States each year, almost 13,000 people are diagnosed with cervical cancer, according to the American Cancer Society. "We encourage women not to delay their screening, and to talk to their doctor or call the Cancer Services Program". The CDC recommends women between the ages of 9 and 26 to get the vaccine, while men between 13 and 21 also get it, too.

Across the state, Saint Thomas Health provided more than $92 million in community benefit and care of persons living in poverty in fiscal year 2017.

Preventive screenings - like a Pap test - can detect irregularities that lead to cervical cancer.

Some women are at higher risk for cervical cancer.

Texas has some of the lowest rates of vaccination in the country, which is why local clinics are reminding people to get vaccinated to prevent the cervical cancer numbers from going up.
