Cervical Cancer/HPV Prevention

Today medical science understands that the human papillomavirus (HPV) causes cervical cancer. The good news is that it can be prevented by regular testing. The team at Desert West Obstetrics & Gynecology wants all of our patients to understand the importance of testing for the cancer-causing types of HPV along with their annual Pap test. We encourage you to visit www.theHPVtest.com and talk to your provider about reducing your risk for cervical cancer.
