About cervical cancer
Cervical cancer used to be the leading cause of cancer death in American women. Now, more women get screened for cervical cancer which has made the number of women who get or die from cervical cancer decrease significantly. Cervical cancer is highly preventable because of screening tests and a vaccine to the HPV virus are available.
Do I qualify for a FREE screening?
The Utah Cancer Control Program (UCCP) provides cervical cancer screenings to Utah women aged 40-64 who are low income, uninsured, or underinsured.
Cervical cancer screening is also available to women aged 21-64 who have never had a Pap test or have not had a Pap test in the last 5 years.
All you need is your family size and income to see if you qualify.
Even people with insurance may qualify for some services.
Pap tests are recommended for all women aged 21-65. A pap test can find abnormal cells before they turn into cancer. If it is caught early, cervical cancer is one of the most successfully treated cancers.
Almost all cervical cancer is caused by the HPV virus, a virus passed from one person to another during sexual intercourse.
