Health Tip: Help Prevent Cervical Cancer


HealthDay News
Updated: Jan 28th 2019

(HealthDay News) -- More than 12,000 women get cervical cancer every year, but more than 90 percent of cases may be preventable, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says.

In 2012, some 8 million U.S. women aged 21 to 65 reported they had not been screened for cervical cancer in the last five years, the agency says.

The CDC recommends:

  • Vaccinate girls ages 11-12 against human papilloma virus (HPV), a primary cause of cervical cancer.
  • Obtain Pap tests every three years for women 21 to 29.
  • Women ages 30 to 65 should either get a Pap test every 3 years OR a Pap test and HPV test every 5 years.
