Health Unit: Pap test can save lives

ABOYNE - Each year, 1,300 to 1,500 Canadian women are diagnosed with cervical cancer; almost 400 will die of the disease.

Regular Pap tests can reduce the risk. In October, Wellington-Dufferin-Guelph Public Health is offering free Pap test clinics to women over 20 years of age who don’t have a family physician or can’t access a Pap test from their physician.

Regular Pap tests can identify changes in cells of the cervix and provide early warnings for unhealthy cervical cells or cervical cancer. The test can also identify infections such as the human papillomavirus (HPV).

To book one, call WDG Public Health at 1-800-265-7293. For clinics in Fergus, Orangeville and Shelburne use extension 5666, in Guelph use extension 4715, and in Palmerston and Mount Forest use 7616. For more information on cervical cancer go to www.wdgpublichealth.ca.
