Cervical Cancer Overview | Guide To Cervical Cancer

Cervical cancer incidence rates have declined by more than half in recent decades, largely due to the widespread use of regular screening and HPV vaccination. Because cervical precancers have no signs or symptoms- and early cervical cancer rarely has any- it's important for people with a cervix to have regular cervical cancer screening.

One of the best things you can do is be aware of what is normal for you – so you can recognize when something changes. A change in your breast, a pain in your body that doesn’t improve, a prolonged cough and new persistent headaches typically aren’t normal, so they should be discussed with a doctor if they don’t go away within a few weeks.

Americans Missed Almost 10 Million Cancer Screenings During Pandemic

Get your cancer screening back on track. Call us today to schedule your life saving cancer screening 563-421-1913.
"Routine screening helps detect cancer at an early stage when it is most curable. Millions of people missing cancer screenings because of the COVID-19 pandemic will mean the delay in the detection of cancer for some, meaning it will be more advanced when it's diagnosed.
"Unfortunately, by causing cancellations of appointments and cancer screenings, COVID will indirectly cause an increase in cancer deaths — another negative consequence of COVID that has not yet received much public attention," Chen said in a university news release.
It's crucial for the public and health care providers to understand the urgency of getting cancer screenings back on track, he emphasized."

5 Ways to Boost Breast Health

Women who drink more than one alcoholic beverage per day — even just two drinks — are at an increased risk of developing breast cancer. Women who have three or more drinks per week after being diagnosed with breast cancer run a greater risk that their breast cancer will recur.
According to the American Cancer Society, the amount of alcohol consumed is important, not the type of alcoholic drink. A serving of an alcoholic drink is defined as 12 ounces of beer, 5 ounces of wine and 1 1/2 ounces of hard liquor. https://health.clevelandclinic.org/5-ways-to-boost-breast-health/?fbclid=IwAR0O-LrmzwkDO_Qpi1vqEnfcBHgsbOzVNkcXmV-G1Jx46A8bhXsjlua9udI

Screening for Cancer

Screening means checking your body for cancer before you have symptoms. Many cancers can be treated more effectively if they are found early. Talk to your doctor to see if getting screened for breast, cervical, colorectal or lung cancer is right for you. To read more, visit: http://bit.ly/2lh852V

Cancer screening is checking for cancer in people who don't have symptoms. Screening tests can help doctors find and treat several types of cancer early, but cancer screening can have harms as well as benefits.

Mask up for Mammogram! Preventative cancer screenings are essential!

Can you believe we've been in this pandemic for a year? This is a tough time to navigate—not to mention taking charge of our breast and ovarian health.

Firstly - do not wait until you are vaccinated to go in for your well-woman or mammogram. It is so important to be taking those preventive steps for your health.

If you are getting a vaccine and do want to time your mammogram, The Society of Breast Imaging recently put forth a recommendation (2021) to consider, if possible and so long as it does not considerably delay care, scheduling your mammogram prior to the first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine or four or more weeks after your second dose of the vaccine.

Join Bright Pink, Myriad Genetics, and the Tigerlily Foundation in our #MaskUpForMammograms pledge to ensure you are taking care of yourself and accessing the healthcare you need and deserve.

Take the pledge now and commit to masking up for yourself to live your brightest days. https://brightpink.org/myriad-sign-up-page/
