Early Detection of Cancer – It’s not beyond us..

 Cervical cancer kills 1 Indian every 7 mins

 If you are between the ages of 18 -45, a regular Pap test is the best protection against cervical cancer.

 As per the American Cancer Society guidelines for the prevention and early detection of cervical cancer.

  • All women should begin cervical cancer screening at age 21.
  • Women between the ages of 21 and 29 should have a Pap test every 3 years. They should not be tested for HPV unless it is needed after an abnormal Pap test result.
  • Women between the ages of 30 and 65 should have both a Pap test and an HPV test every 5 years. This is the preferred approach, but it is also OK to have a Pap test alone every 3 years.

 If you have the following symptoms

  • Abnormal vaginal bleeding
