Cervical cancer is the third most commonly diagnosed gynaecological cancer in Australian women – but it is also one of the most preventable.
There are two simple ways that you can protect yourself against cervical cancer:

  1. The HPV vaccine
  2. Regular Pap smears

The vaccine protects you from some types of HPV which are known to cause cervical cancer.
The Pap test (or Pap smear) finds early precancerous changes in cervical cells that can develop into cancer
