FAQ Regarding Cervical Cancer

I think this is a very good resources and wanted to share it with you. As I have mentioned time and again Cervical Cancer is a very serious disease. It is also a disease that most people know little about. But if you are reading my blog you are learning, as am I. Not only are you learning something that could save your life you are also arming yourself to help save others. You are not too afraid, embarrassed or closed minded to talk about HPV and Cervical Cancer.

The U.S. Department of Health and Human Resources states "Cervical cancer is a disease that can be very serious. However, it is a disease that you can help prevent. Cervical cancer occurs when normal cells in the cervix change into cancer cells. This normally takes several years to happen, but it can also happen in a very short period of time. The good news is that there are ways to help prevent cervical cancer. By getting regular Pap tests and pelvic exams, your health care provider can find and treat the changing cells before they turn into cancer."

To read more about Cervical Cancer and find helpful phone numbers and websites please visit WOMENSHEALTH.GOV and be sure to book mark the site. You never know when someone will come to you asking for advice and/or help. This could be the resource that saves a persons life. I don't mean to sound dramatic but if someone had known enough to say to me, "Meaghan I think you may have Cervical Cancer" maybe things would have turned out differently. Even doctors didn't have the sense to alert me to Cervical Cancer. That means we have to arm ourselves and watch out for eachother!

As always thanks for being so supportive and inspiring me to keep learning and sharing what I find!

And you have to stop by my Get The Bean Blog and see today's recipe: Coffee Cake Pancakes!

I wish there would have been more information out about the warning signs of CC. Had I known spotting was a sign, I wouldn't have waited 6 months to get checked. Had it been caught sooner, I could have undergone a less invasive procedure and saved my fertility. I make sure to tell all of my friends that if ANY think is "off" they need to make an appt ASAP!

I just want to say thank you for your blog. The information and links have been such a great source. I am thankful that my doctor caught my cervical cancer in its very early stages three years ago. The first year I was a mess.

Hey Meaghan - I've been thinking about something lately and you may know an answer. Have you ever heard of a connection between incompetent cervix (IC) and cervical cancer? IC is what caused me to deliver my daughter early and the reason for all of the precautions taken during my second pregnancy. I've just been thinking about it and haven't found anything online. I'll have to ask my dr. the next time I see her.
