Routine Cervical Cancer Screening Helps Prevent Serious Complications
Idaho ranks 50th out of 52 states and territories, including Puerto Rico and Washington D.C., in screening for cervical cancer.
The tests, including a pap test and human papillomavirus (HPV) tests can find cervical cancer early or prevent it by identifying precancers that can be treated.
Women ages 21-64 should receive a pap test every three years. Women ages 30-64 should receive a pap test as part of a pap/HPV co-test every five years.
