Every hour, one person with a cervix in the U.S. is diagnosed with cervical cancer. The Pap test and the combined Pap + HPV co-test are recognized as the most successful methods for early detection. Studies and statistics show that the Pap + HPV co-test in particular has caught 94.1% of cervical cancers and 99.7% of cervical pre-cancers, and has successfully identified 70% of cancers that were missed by the HPV test alone.
Women’s health matters, and the Pap + HPV co-test is crucial and shouldn’t be neglected. Cervical cancer was once the number one cancer-related killer among women, but since the introduction of the Pap test, it has dropped to number fifteen on the list.”
