Valdosta - More than 400 women in Georgia are diagnosed with cervical cancer each year. But if it's caught early, the disease is over 90 percent curable.
January is National Cervical Cancer Awareness Month and South Georgia Medical Center in Valdosta is doing its part to help women by offering free pap smear screenings. The screenings will be from 5:00 until 8:00 Thursday evening at the Pearlman Cancer Center on Pendleton Drive.
A pap smear is the best way to detect cervical cancer, and early detection is the best protection. "We've found that most women affected by cervical cancer are between the ages of 35 and 55 so we encourage any woman in that age range that hasn't had a pap smear in the last three years or a hysterectomy to please call and register to have their pap test Thursday night," said Valerie Swinson.
To register for a free pap smear screening, call the hospital's community relations office at 229-333-1610.
