The PEFHT explains cervical cancer is cancer of the cervix, which is located at the opening of the uterus. Cervical cancer is almost entirely preventable with regular screening, appropriate and timely follow-up of abnormal results and human papillomavirus (HPV) immunization.

Each year, about 630 women are diagnosed with cancer of the cervix and about 150 women die from this disease in Ontario. Screening is the only way to detect the early changes that might lead to cervical cancer.

Women aged 21 to 70 are eligible for Pap testing, usually carried out every three years.

Call the PEFHT 613-476-0400 ext, 0 to make an appointment.
