Nearly 13,000 women in the United States are diagnosed with cervical cancer each year, but the disease is virtually always preventable with vaccination and appropriate screening (pap and HPV tests). Regular screening with Pap tests can detect cell changes before cancer develops. Learn more about Missouri's Breast and Cervical Cancer Program here.
