Cervical Cancer Prevention

Cervical Cancer Prevention

At the NCI-designated Montefiore Einstein Comprehensive Cancer Center, we’re focused on preventing cancer from ever starting and catching it as early as possible, when treatment is easiest and most effective.

Cervical cancer prevention is the goal of our world-renowned gynecologic oncology team.

There are many things you can do to lower your chances of getting cervical cancer. You can start by getting the HPV vaccine and regular Pap smears, which protect against infection that increases the risk of cancer. Additionally, quitting smoking lowers your risk of developing cervical cancer. You can also understand your family health history. It’s important to identify cancer in its earliest stage, getting a cancer screening can help.

For more than 50 years, Montefiore Einstein Comprehensive Cancer Center has been a leader in the research, diagnosis and treatment of over 200 types of cancer. Turn to us for expert cancer screening and prevention.
