The Pap smear is currently the best way to detect cervical cancers early, when they are most likely to be cured. To learn how often this screening test is recommended, visit the American Cancer Society Web site.

Services Available

Women who have a personal or family history of breast, colon, ovarian, or urinary cancer; genetic mutations that predispose to breast and ovarian cancer; and/or previous use of fertility drugs for more than one year may be at high risk for breast or ovarian cancer.
