Represented by the color teal, the nation-wide initiative aims to increase awareness about cervical cancer, HPV, and the importance of early detection.

Key Points on Early Detection
  • Early detection is paramount for preventing and treating cervical cancer.
  • The Pap test, recommended from age 21, involves collecting cells for laboratory examination every three years.
  • The Human Papilloma Virus (HPV) screening, recommended around age 30, is crucial, and combining it with the Pap test enhances early detection.
  • If both tests yield normal results, no further testing is necessary for another five years.
  • Screening frequency after age 30 should be determined in consultation with a gynecologist or primary care provider, considering individual medical history.

Available Vaccines
HPV is one of the most common sexually transmitted diseases, and causes almost all incidents of cervical cancer. When a female is infected with HPV, and the virus does not go away on its own, abnormal cells develop in the lining of her cervix. If these cells are not caught early by a Pap test or HPV screening, and then subsequently treated, pre-cancer and cancerous cells can develop. There are currently two vaccines available to help prevent certain types of cervical cancer: Gardasil and Cervarix. The FDA has approved Gardasil for use in females and males from ages nine to 26.
