More Pap Screening and HPV Vaccination Has Huge Potential for Preventing Cervical Cancer

Study finds millions of cases could be avoided

Cervical cancer is one of the most common cancers in women – but it’s also one of the most preventable. The rise of Pap screening and HPV vaccination have made early detection and prevention a life-saver for many.
