COMMUNITY THE WALSH COUNTY PRESS WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 2 I, 2015 Pase 5 BISi IARe-K, N.D. -- In ob- 65. servat(on of National Cervical Heahh'Awareness IvJonth this Jan- uary, the North Dakota Department of Health is reminding women to get screened for cervical cancer. Each year, approximately 12,000 women in the United States get cervical cancer and over 4,000 women die from the disease, ac- cording to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). However, as many as 93 percent of cervical cancers could be pre- vented through cervical cancer screening and human papillo- mavirus (HPV) vaccination. The main cause of cervical cancer is the human papillo- mavirus (HPV), the most common sexually transmitted infection in the United States. Most people with HPV do not even know they have it because they never have symptoms or problems. Usually the body's immune system will fight off the infection, but some- times an HPV infection does not go aWay and can cause abnormal changes in the cells of the cervix. If that happens, treatment may be needed. If left untreated, abnormal changes can eventually lead to cer- vical cancer. Regular screening tests, like the Pap test and the HPV test, can prevent cervical cancer. The Pap test is a screening test that can de- tect the abnormal changes in the cervical cells before they become cancer. If cancer does occur, the Pap test can find it early when it is easier to treat. An HPV test can find any of the types of HPV that can cause the. abnormal cell changes on the cervix. The HPV test is done at the same time as the Pap test. Current guidelines recommend women have a Pap test every three years beginning at age 21. Women ages 30 to 65 should have a Pap test along with an HPV test every five years or a Pap test alone every three years. WOmen with certain risk facbrs may need to have more fi-equert screening or continue screening beyond age Vaccines also have the potential to protect people from the HPV in- fections that can cause cancer. There are currently two vaccines available for people 11 to 26 years old. Both protect against HPV strains 16 and 18, the two main types of HPV that cause approx- imately 70 percent of all cervical cancers. However, it is important that women who have been vac- cinated still get regular Pap tests. "Unfortunately, many women do not get regular Pap tests be- cause they are uninsured or un- derinsured," said Barb Steiner with the North Dakota Department of Health. "The good news is that Women's Way may be able to help women pay for their Pap and HPV test." Women's Way, North Dakota's Breast and Cervical Cancer Early Detection Program, is available to eligible North Dakota women ages 40 through 64. Women's Way may provide a way to pay for pelvic exams, Pap tests, clinical breast exams and mammograms. Women's Way is now also avail- able to women ages 21 to 39 who meet specific eligibility require- ments. To learn more about Women's Way or to see if you are eligible, call 1.800.44 WOMEN or visit ensway. Another option is the North Dakota Family Planning Program, which provides reproductive health services to women, including Pap tests, pelvic exams and breast ex- ams. Family Planning has nine main clinics and 12 satellite clin- ics located throughout the state. Clients are charged for services ac- cording to their household in- come and family size. To learn more about the Family Planning Program, call 701.328.2228 or visit ilyplanning/to find a clinic near you. : ,' ' To learn more about cervical cancer or HPV, visit www.can- or S.-vvr rAC 3 and running errands or doing chores may also provide transportation.
