January is Cervical Cancer Awareness Month……..

but anytime is a good time to raise awareness of this disease. Here is some great information about cervical cancer.

How does cervical cancer form?

The cervix is made up of delicate tissue that is prone to cellular damage that can turn into cancer. Human papillomavirus (HPV) causes 70% of cervical and precancerous cervical lesions, according the World Health Organization but many things can cause it. During a Pap smear the doctor takes a sample of the cells of the cervix and examines them for tissue abnormalities that could turn into cancer or other disorders.
