Health Department Tells Women To Get Cervical Cancer Screenings

In observance of Cervical Cancer Awareness Month, the Heart of the Rockies Regional Medical Center Foundation is partnering with Planned Parenthood and Chaffee County Public Health for a free event to raise awareness of the importance of regular preventive screening. If women are not insured, the Harford County Health Department's Breast and Cervical Cancer Program can provide eligible women with no cost-screening services. "Thanks to the Affordable Care Act, more people in CT and Rhode Island have access to the care they need, including Pap tests, testing for sexually transmitted infections and the HPV vaccine, without having to pay out of pocket for copays and other expenses". The CSP can help close the screening gap for women without insurance. Those cells can then be removed before cancer starts.

Women can contact the health department at 410-612-1780 to find out more about the cancer screening services provided.

Officials say women should get screened for the disease regularly, starting at age 21.

If you have insurance, talk to your doctor about cervical cancer screening.

You can prevent cervical cancer with the right test at the right time! Research has shown that most cervical cancers are caused by HPV. Ask your health care provider for more details. "There are usually no symptoms, but thanks largely to the increased use of the Pap test, the cervical cancer death rate has declined by more than 50 percent over the last 40 years". Treatment is also available for cervical cancer, which, when caught early, has a almost 100 percent five-year survival rate. Our program also provides free breast and colon cancer screening to eligible NY state residents. For more information about free screenings in Chautauqua County, call the Cancer Services Program at 800-506-9185 or visit Facebook - Chautauqua County Cancer Services Program.
