The incidence of cervical cancer in the United States has decreased significantly due to the widespread implementation of screening using the Pap test and testing for the human papilloma virus (HPV). Our cervical cancer screening program allows patients with abnormal pap tests to be evaluated by a gynecologic oncologist so abnormalities can be detected early and treated with minimal impact on fertility.
