It's time to talk about gynecologic cancers
Did you know?
Your yearly Pap smear only detects one of the five gynecologic cancers — Cervical. It doesn't screen for the other four types: Ovarian, Uterine/Endometrial, Vaginal and Vulvar.
Steps to protect yourself:
- Know your family history
- Get regular Pap tests
- Protect yourself from HPV*
- Know your body and what is normal for you
- Familiarize yourself with the gynecologic cancers and symptoms
- If you have symptoms, talk to your doctor
*HPV is a virus which is passed skin-to-skin through sexual intercourse or other forms of skin-to-skin contact of the genitals.
