Getting regular screenings for cervical cancer can help find abnormal (changed) cervical cells before they turn into cervical cancer. There are 2 kinds of screening tests that can find abnormal cervical cells: Pap tests, also called Pap smears and HPV (human papillomavirus) tests. Most deaths from cervical cancer can be prevented if women get regular cervical screenings and follow‐up care. Schedule your Cervical Cancer Screening today by contacting your local healthcare provider!
