January 2011 Live Smart

Posted: Updated:

January is Cervical Cancer Screening Month. There are 10,000-15,000 cases of cervical cancer diagnosed every year in the United States. Most of the time, early cervical cancer has no symptoms; so by the time there is a diagnosis, the disease is often in advanced stages. When cervical cancer is caught early, it is 100% treatable.
