Early cancer screenings offered through Women’s Wellness Connection
Why is finding breast cancer early so important?
Ninety-eight percent of women survive breast cancer when it’s found early through regular screenings. Most breast cancers take years to develop. Early on, most breast cancers don’t cause any physical symptoms, so without a screening, there’s no way of knowing you have it. When breast cancer is found early, it doesn’t get a chance to spread to other places. Eighty percent of breast lumps are not cancer.
Why is finding cervical cancer early so important?
Ninety-two percent of women survive cervical cancer when it’s found early through routine tests. A Pap test can find abnormal cervical cells years before any cancer actually exists. Getting a Pap and/or HPV test every three to five years can help you detect and even prevent cancer of the cervix. You can’t control what you find, but you can control when you find it. There’s no reason to wait. Getting regular breast and cervical cancer screenings may save your life.
