Key Messages for Providers

  • Screening for cervical cancer is recommended (unlike for other gynecologic cancers).
  • Cervical cancer is highly preventable through HPV vaccination and treatment of pre-clinical lesions detected by screening.
  • Most women don’t need to be screened every year.
  • Refer patients diagnosed with cervical cancer to a gynecologic oncologist.
