Q. Where can I find the latest screening info for cervical cancer? Seems like the recommended time between screenings has changed?
The first step with any cancer diagnosis is obtaining access to screen. Fortunately, there are places you can look into to acquire the latest information. Some places to seek updates about screenings would be the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and National Cervical Cancer Coalition. Both organizations have information about when to take your screens, and resources where you can find a screening center near you. Speaking with your OB-GYN is also another option in determining the best time for you to have a screen.
