Don't just sit there

Now there's a new cervical cancer vaccine, do women still need pap tests? Yes.

Pap tests can be uncomfortable, but putting it in perspective, regular pap tests save more than 1,000 women a year from cervical cancer, from surgery, from radiotherapy, from chemotherapy.

There's uncomfortable, and there uncomfortable.

If you haven't had a pap test in the last two years, stop putting it off. Make an appointment today with your doctor or community health centre.
