AWARENESS

teal-20Stigma is shame. Shame causes silence. Silence hurts us all.

                         

HPV Epidemic:   Nearly all cervical cancer is caused by Human Papillomavirus (HPV).

No female should die from preventable cancer. 

tealFlorida has the nation’s 3rd highest cervical cancer incidence and mortality rates in the United States.    Minority, low-income, and underinsured women and girls remain at exaggerated risk of being diagnosed with and dying from cervical cancer largely due to underutilization of routine screening and timely follow up for detected abnormalities.

When to Get Tested and How to Make Sense of Your Test Results

If you are 30 years or older and…

  • your Pap test is normal
  • your HPV test is negative

…you can wait 5 years before being tested again for cervical cancer!

If you have had a Pap test and HPV test, this booklet will answer your questions about:

Can I be treated for HPV or health problems caused by HPV?

There is no treatment for the virus itself. However, there are treatments for the health problems that HPV can cause:

  1. Genital warts can be treated by you or your physician. If left untreated, genital warts may go away, stay the same, or grow in size or number.
  2. Cervical precancer can be treated. Women who get routine Pap tests and follow up as needed can identify problems before cancer develops. Prevention is always better than treatment. For more information visit www.cancer.org.
  3. Other HPV-related cancers are also more treatable when diagnosed and treated early.

Getting abnormal results does not mean that you have cervical cancer now. For specific questions about your test results, talk to your doctor.
