Protect Yourself Against Breast and Cervical Cancer
Breast cancer is the most common cancer in women. Early detection gives a woman her best chance for survival. There are no warning signs for cervical cancer. But cervical cancer can be successfully prevented and treated if detected early.

Two Simple Tests
A mammogram and a cervical cancer screening can detect cancer in early treatable stages.
What is a mammogram?
A mammogram is an X-ray picture of the breasts. Mammograms detect tumors that cannot be found by a breast exam. A mammogram is slightly uncomfortable for some women … but it can save your life!
What is a Pap test?
A Pap test is a cervical screening performed in your doctor’s office. A small piece of your cervical tissue is taken during an internal exam and is tested to see if there is anything unusual about the cells in the tissue. A Pap test is slightly uncomfortable for some women … but it can save your life!
