Cervical cancer rates have declined over 80% because of screening. Cervical cancer screening can be done using the Pap test and by testing for Human Papillomavirus (HPV), the virus that causes cervical cancer. HPV vaccination can also prevent cervical cancer. This website is designed to help patients understand HPV vaccination as well as new guidelines for cervical cancer screening and management of abnormal results. This website will walk you through the steps that a doctor or healthcare provider may use when deciding management after an abnormal result.
