- Cervical cancer rarely develops in women under 20 and is most common in women ages 35-44.
- Pap smears can detect cervical cancer! Other gynecologic cancers must be detected with a pelvic exam, blood tests, and/or ultrasound.
- Symptoms may not appear at all in early stages of cervical cancer. If they do develop, the most common symptoms are abnormal vaginal bleeding, unusual vaginal discharge, and pain in the pelvic region.
- Treatments for cervical cancer include surgery, chemotherapy, and radiation.
- The 5-year survival rate for cervical cancer is around 66%. Early detection can improve that number up to 92%.
- The first HPV vaccine was approved in 2006 which protects against the types of HPV that cause around 70% of all cases of cervical cancer! By 2014, a new vaccine was created that can protect against the types of HPV that cause around 90% of cervical cancers.
- Cervical cancer was once one of the most common causes of cancer related death in women in the United States. Regular pap smears and screenings have drastically lowered the number of cervical cancer deaths each year!
