diagnosis and treatment can start sooner.

Prevention and Screening
Did you know there are two tests can help prevent cervical cancer?
1. The Pap test (or Pap smear) looks for precancers, cell changes on the cervix that may become cervical cancer if they are not treated appropriately. You should start getting Pap tests at age 21, or sooner if you are sexually active.
2. The human papillomavirus (HPV) test looks for the virus that can cause these cell changes.
Have you scheduled your yearly exam and or Pap Test?
The Pap test (or Pap smear) looks for cancers and precancers in the cervix (the lower part of the uterus that opens into the vagina). Precancers are cell changes that might become cancer if they are not treated the right way. Most health insurance plans must cover Pap tests or cervical cancer screening at no cost to you.
Did you know though a Pap Test doesn’t check for any other cancers BUT Cervical? That’s why it’s important to know the signs and symptoms of ALL Gynecologic Cancers and talk to your Health Care Provider.
Join our online support group, that is limited to women who are currently battling a Gynecologic Cancer, or have so in the past. Here you can safely talk about symptoms and connect with other Teal Sisters from around the world.

Spread the Word
Help spread the word to bring this group of silent stalkers to light. Nothing can prepare you for cancer. Nothing can prepare you for the conversation that will change your life forever. Receiving a cancer diagnosis can obviously be shattering news, not just for you but for your family and anyone who is close to you.
