Cervical Cancer Awareness Week


This National Cervical Cancer Awareness Week (October 21-25), the Mississauga Halton Central West Regional Cancer Program and Cancer Care Ontario are encouraging all women to stay up-to-date with regular Pap tests.

The Ontario Cervical Screening Program recommends that women ages 21 to 69 get screened for cervical cancer every three years if they are or have ever been sexually active.
Cervical cancer is almost entirely preventable with regular screening. Regular cancer screening is important because it can find cancer early when it may be smaller and easier to treat. Screening for cervical cancer can also help prevent this disease by finding abnormal cells that could turn into cancer. 
Talk to your doctor today about getting screened for cervical cancer with a Pap test every three years.
