Cervical Screening

Cervical Screening

Cervical cancer is a preventable cancer. It is caused mainly by infection with certain types (or strains) of the human papillomavirus (HPV), a common virus found in both men and women.

Cervical Screening Saves Lives

Cervical cancer can be prevented through early detection and interventions. Screening with Pap tests can detect cell changes and precancerous lesions.

Have you had a pap test within the last three years?
If not, give the Wawa Family Health Team a call to make an appointment.
