Time flies, and we give a warm welcome to March, a month that opens the door to spring and where we celebrate women. We want to remind all women that annual preventive care visits are recommended and covered under all health care plans.
Always keep in mind that to take care of others, you must first take care of yourself; that is why we share with you the most important women’s health exams to consider this month:
A pap smear is a method of cervical screening used to detect potentially precancerous and cancerous processes in the cervix. The primary goal of screening is to identify precancerous lesions caused by HPV so they can be removed to prevent invasive cancers from developing.
Breast Cancer Screenings
Breast cancer self-exams and professionally administered mammograms can save a woman’s life, especially if the patient has specific risk factors, such as a family history of breast cancer diagnoses.
