Get screened for the human papillomavirus (HPV) – the most common sexually-transmitted infection. HPV infections can increase the risk of developing cervical and other cancers (oral, vulvar, anal). The HPV vaccine (Gardasil) is recommended for both males and females between the ages of 11 and 45.
Screening tests look for a disease before there are symptoms. Screening tests include: mammography, colonoscopies, Pap tests and HPV testing. Finding disease early can lead to more effective treatment.
The Pap test can detect cellular changes that could lead to pre-cervical cancer.
