Guess What This Month Is?
It's Gynecologic Cancer Awareness Month!
That's right ladies, time to get your lady parts checked.
Gynecologic cancers are serious and can lead to infertility.
The five main types are cervical, ovarian, uterine, vaginal and vulvar. These types of cancers can strike any woman, and the chance of getting them increases with age.
So get tested! If you have no insurance (if you're young, this is highly likely) there are programs out there that can help!
Check out the CDC's National Early Breast and Cervical Cancer Early Detection Program to see if you qualify for free screenings.
Are you uninsured and looking for free health screenings?
