January is Cervical Cancer Awareness Month.  Cervical cancer may be prevented by finding and removing pre-cancerous cells.  A pap test looks for these cells.  We at the Florida Breast and Cervical Early Detection Program encourage women throughout the state to get a pap test as directed by their medical providers. 

Stop smoking, smoking doubles your risk of cervical cancer.  Smoking weakens your body's ability to fight HPV (human papilloma virus).  HPV greatly increases your risk of getting cervical cancer.
