Pap tests are important tests for most women in an effort to detect cervical cancer or other cervical issues. A pap smear, also called a pap exam or pap test, is a screening to test for cervical cancer or other abnormalities in the cervix. Early detection of cervical cancer with a pap smear gives you a greater chance of beating it. The exam can also detect abnormal cells that suggest cancer may develop in the future. But when should a woman begin getting the test? Doctors recommend repeating pap testing every three years for women ages 21 to 65. Women ages 30 and older may consider pap testing every five years, combining the procedure with human papillomavirus (HPV) testing. While this is the general rule for women, there are some risk factors that may require testing more frequently. These include: A diagnosis of cervical cancer or a pap test that reveals precancerous cells Exposure to diethylstilbestrol (DES) before birth. (DES is a synthetic form of estrogen that was prescribed to pregnant women between 1940 and 1970.) HIV infection Immune system weakened from organ transplant, chemotherapy or chronic corticosteroid use A history of smoking What Can I Expect During a Pap […]
Thousands of women are diagnosed each year with gynecologic cancer. September is Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month and the perfect time to discuss the signs and symptoms of this deadly disease. The American Cancer Society estimates that this year more than 113,500 women will be diagnosed with a gynecologic cancer, and more than 33,000 will die from the disease. Ovarian Cancer Ovarian cancer includes cancer of the ovaries, fallopian tubes and the primary peritoneum (the tissue lining the abdominal wall and covering the abdominal organs). Together, this group is the fifth leading cause of cancer death for women in the United States. Symptoms of ovarian cancer can include: Fatigue (extreme tiredness) Upset stomach Back pain Pain during sex Constipation Changes in a woman’s period, such as heavier bleeding than normal or irregular bleeding Abdominal (belly) swelling with weight loss During regular pelvic exams, your doctor checks for signs of ovarian cancer. If your doctor suspects signs, you will likely be sent for imaging tests and/or blood tests. Cervical Cancer Cervical cancers can be as unique as the patients who are diagnosed with them. Cervical cancer may not cause signs and symptoms early on. Advanced cervical cancer often causes bleeding or discharge […]
During this universal week of celebration, let’s discuss the benefits of breastfeeding. World Breastfeeding Week is celebrated every year between August 1 and 7 in more than 120 countries to improve the health of mothers and babies around the world. In August of 1990, the World Health Organization (WHO) and UNICEF created the Innocenti Declaration to promote the positive health benefits of breastfeeding as well as to expand awareness and protections for breastfeeding mothers. World Breastfeeding Week (WBW) began in 1992, with annual themes to support women caring for their babies. These themes have included healthcare systems, women and work, the International Code of Marketing of Breastmilk Substitutes, community support, ecology, economy, science, education and human rights. In 2018, a World Health Assembly resolution endorsed WBW as an important breastfeeding promotion strategy. The Benefits of Breastfeeding Breastfeeding is important to the health and well-being of new babies and moms. The nutrients and antibodies in breast milk help babies fight off illnesses, infections and other potential health threats, and breastfeeding helps new mothers bond with their baby. Breastfeeding is a unique process that: Provides ideal nutrition for infants and contributes to their healthy growth and development. Reduces incidence and severity of […]
