Cervical Cancer Screening Request an Appointment
Cervical cancer used to be one of most common causes of cancer death for American women. But over the last 30 years, the cervical cancer death rate has gone down by more than 50% – due mainly to the increased use of the Pap test. This screening procedure can find changes in the cervix before cancer develops. It can also find cervical cancer early, when it’s most curable.

Important Facts about Cervical Cancer.
- In 2016, about 12,990 new cases of invasive cervical cancer will be diagnosed, and about 4,120 women will die from the disease.
- It tends to occur in midlife: most cases are found in women younger than 50, and it rarely develops in women younger than 20.
- Many older women don’t realize that the risk of developing cervical cancer is still present as they age. More than 15% of cases are found in women over 65. However, these cancers rarely occur in women who have been getting regular tests to screen for cervical cancer before they were 65.
- In the United States, Hispanic women are most likely to get cervical cancer, followed by African-Americans, Asians and Pacific Islanders, and whites.
