Wellness.com is known for providing accurate and useful information on various health and wellness topics. During the month of January the site will be focusing on a specific health problem that has affected millions of women around the world – cervical cancer.
As the fifth most common cancer worldwide (and the eighth most common in the United States), cervical cancer has left a huge impact on countless lives. Associated with human papillomavirus (HPV), this deadly cancer can be difficult to catch in the early stages. Because there are not many symptoms when the cancer first begins its growth, in many cases the only way to catch it is through screening tests like pap smears. Chances of surviving the disease if caught early are high. If left to grow unchecked, however, serious (and sometimes deadly) complications are likely.
This focus on early detection through testing is one of many aspects of the disease that Fitness-Health-
Wellness.com will be exploring during the month of January. Throughout the month the site will be inviting health professionals to the site to give clear and useful information about this potentially deadly disease.
Another method the site will use to help raise cervical cancer awareness is through exploring the stories of survivors of the disease. Their stories will help illustrate the seriousness of this type of cancer and give hope to those who are affected by it.
Cervical cancer is a serious and potentially devastating illness. Fitness-Health-
Wellness.com hopes to do its part to raise awareness of this disease and encourage women everywhere to get screened on a regular basis. The information that readers can arm themselves with during the month of January may help save their lives or the lives of friends and loved ones someday. Although cervical cancer is a serious disease, with the right information it can be fought and beaten.
