Guidelines Push Back Age for Cervical Cancer Tests
Two major changes in one week.
THIS IS one busy week for changing standard operating procedures for testing for cancers that effect women.
First it was about delaying mammograms till 50, and now new guide lines for cervical cancer screening stipulate that women should delay their first Pap test until age 21, and go for screening less often than had been previously recommended.
I don’t have an edge or insight on this topic, but I know it’s important, and so I suggest you (women in particular) read about it here.
