Cervical Cancer Awareness

Cervical Cancer is one of the most preventable cancers, yet each year, more than 11,000 new cases are diagnosed in the United States, and more than 4,000 lives are lost.

Pap tests find abnormal cells years before any cancer exists. It is a simple test and can save lives. Schedule your Pap today and remind women around you to schedule theirs. Teller County Public Health has programs that make Pap tests available on a sliding fee scale dependent on income and household size. Call our office today at 687-6416 for information, and to see if you qualify.

Moms, do what you can now to protect your daughter's future...make sure she gets the HPV vaccine that protects against the most common types of viruses that cause cervical cancer; teach her the importance of regular pap tests; make sure she knows about all the ways she can keep herself safe and healthy as she grows up.
