Cervical cancer is highly preventable in most countries because there are screening tests and a vaccine available to prevent human papillomavirus (HPV) infections. When cervical cancer is found early, it is highly treatable and associated with long survival and good quality of life.
This month's awareness campaign is meant to help women, family
members and caregivers battle the personal issues related to cervical
cancer and HPV and to advocate for cervical health in all women by
promoting prevention through education about early vaccination, Pap
testing and HPV testing when recommended for women with, or at risk
for, cervical cancer and HPV disease.
Tarrant County Public Health maintains the Breast Cervical Cancer Control Program (BCCCP) for low income and underinsured women over 18, with the intent of eliminating breast and cervical cancer from our community.

You can't see it or smell it, even when it's inside your home. It's radon, a naturally occurring radioactive gas that can cause lung cancer.
For more information, visit the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's
website regarding radon.
