Because of this, screening for cervical cancer with a Pap smear or HPV test is recommended, to catch precancerous lesions before they develop into cancer. In the past, their estimates didn't account for women who had undergone hysterectomies-which nearly always removes the cervix, and with it the risk of getting cervical cancer. But with the impending defunding of programs like Planned Parenthood, which uses federal funds to provide these exact preventative services to nearly 300,000 people each year, we risk an enormous rise in cervical cancer deaths - among other disastrous effects.
The Human papillomavirus (HPV) is the most common cause of cervical cancer, and it is the most common sexually transmitted infection (STI) in the United States.
Published in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) on Tuesday, the study is the first to look at death rates for 29 types of cancer in all 3,100 USA counties over 35 years, Mokdad said.
With the current technology for detection and treatment of cancers such as testicular cancer, prostate cancer, breast cancer and others with high survival rates, "there is no reason that people should be dying at such high rates", he added. Some 3,069 counties - out of a total of 3,142 - saw significant increases in liver cancer death rates, and numerous counties on the West Coast and in New Mexico and west Texas had much larger increases.
In most, cervical cancer occurs in middle-aged women but is mostly found in women younger than 50.

However, the closeness of the Wolf 1061 wasn't the only reason of focus; instead there were also other factors. The surface temperature on Venus now reaches around 471 degrees Celsius.

The new research examined more than 19.5 million deaths in the USA, from 29 different types of cancer, over three and a half decades.
The researchers found that cancer mortality decreased by 20.1 percent between 1980 and 2014, from 240 to 192 deaths per 100,000 population. According to the Webmd, Dr. Ahmedin Jemal, vice president of surveillance and health services research at the American Cancer Society, said the their studies have found that people in areas where cancer deaths are higher than average suffer from a variety of problems that make these deaths more likely. In parts of the country that are relatively poor, and have higher rates of obesity and smoking, cancer death rates rose almost 50 percent. Every day in the United Kingdom nine women are diagnosed with cervical cancer, and three women will die from the disease. Moreover, local information can also be useful for health care clinicians to understand community needs for care and aid in identifying cancer hot spots that need more investigation to understand the root causes. Cervical cancer is also treatable when diagnosed early from screening tests.
Cancer, the No 2 cause of death in the U.S., has always been tracked by health officials, but existing databases had largely measured such statistics on state or national levels.
Cervical screening isn't a test for cancer; it's a test to check the health of the cells of the cervix.
What's the best way to correct this disparity and prevent women from dying from cervical cancer?
