January is Cervical Cancer Awareness Month- Free Women's Screenings

Planned Parenthood of Southern New England is urging residents to schedule preventive screenings as a part of Cervical Health Awareness Month in January. This helps find the changes in the cervix before the cancer develops, this is when the disease is most curable.

Doctors said one of the biggest misconceptions is that HPV only causes cervical cancer in women.

Channing Tatum's cursed Gambit movie loses yet another director
Then, Tatum's Gambit could conceivably make his debut in an MCU installment, and not have to carry his own film right off the bat. Verbinski was the third director to take on the project, which has been in development since 2014.

Ian Fennell continually stressed the importance of early detection. Often, older women do not realize that the risk of developing cervical cancer is still present as they age. In 2016, the incidence rate for cervical cancer was 9 new cases per 100,000 women in Texas.

Fenell, who is Health Service Programs Manager for the Good Samaritan Health Center, explains that cervical cancer is preventable with annual screenings including pap smears and HPV (Human Papillomavirus) screenings.

The new XPS 13 (9370) sports a tapered waistline that measures just 11.6mm at the back, and an even scanter 7.8mm at the front. I doubt I'd recommend eBaying your old model for this one, but Dell's fresh-faced XPS 13 looks to be a decent step forward.

According to the CDC, each year, approximately 13,000 women in the United States will be diagnosed with cervical cancer and over 4,000 will die of the cancer.

Preventive screenings - like a Pap test - can detect irregularities that lead to cervical cancer. Other risk factors include smoking, having a weakened immune system, being overweight, and having a family history of cervical cancer. It can also be used as a screening test on its own, and, in one recent study, it was almost twice as effective as the Pap test in detecting early cervical cancer. Ask your health care provider for more details.
