Such poor cervical cancer outcomes among Hispanics/Latinas can be attributed to low rates of screening and follow-up after abnormal cervical cancer screening results. Cervical cancer is typically preventable if precancerous lesions are detected and treated early. I also learned that women under 25 are in danger of losing access to the Pap test, the routine test that stops cervical cancer from killing thousands of women every year! This is why it’s so important to stay on top of your cervical health for future generations. I can’t imagine losing access to the Pap test for all women under 25, including my nieces.
