1) Enhance awareness of the traditional Pap smear, new technologies, treatment and reimbursement issues facing cervical cancer screening. 2) Develop a grass roots effort directed toward explaining the Pap smear and the difficulties that current below cost, low levels of reimbursement rates cause for the traditional Pap smear and potential new technology. 3) Clearly communicate the continued importance and success of cervical cancer screening as a national communicable disease/cancer screening test to lower cervical cancer rates, with emphasis on access to quality testing for all women, including those most in need of a pap smear, i.e. women who are sexually active, young, poor and may not have had a prior Pap smear. 4) Review national and international cervical cancer screening and treatment programs.

Understanding cancer of the cervix From the CancerBACUP booklet series Booklet revised: November 2002 Introduction This booklet has been written to help you understand more about cancer of the cervix (cervical cancer). We hope that it answers some of the questions you may have about its diagnosis and treatment, and addresses some of the feelings you may have. We cannot advise you about the best treatment for yourself because this information can only come from your own doctor, who will be familiar with your full medical history. At the end of this booklet you will find some useful addresses and helpful books . If, after reading this booklet, you think it has helped you, do pass it on to any of your family and friends who might find it useful. They too may want to be informed so that they can help you cope with any problems you may have.

Welcome to the
National HPV and Cervical Cancer Prevention
Resource Center
The American Social Health Association (ASHA) created the National HPV and Cervical Cancer Prevention Resource Center to address the lack of nationally available HPV and cervical cancer prevention information and resources. The Center is dedicated to addressing the multiple issues and challenges associated with HPV and cervical cancer prevention in the United States. In recent years ASHA has dedicated many resources, research and support systems to help people concerned about genital HPV. These efforts include national advocacy, hotline services, publications, support groups and postdoctoral research.
The resource center is here for you!

About the Software: The "Strategy" to prepare public health nurses for certification of competency in the physical assessment of the female reproductive system and the clinical procedure of obtaining a Papanicolaou Smear. The "Objectives"
  • Identify the location of female reproductive organs.
  • Discuss the normal developmental changes of the female reproductive system.
  • Develop interview questions to obtain information about the patient's reproductive health status.
  • Explain specimen collection of the Papanicolaou smear.
  • Identify the equipment used during the Pap smear and explain their use.
  • Document findings of the assessment of the female reproductive system. About the process: After identifying a product to develop and gaining support for the idea from the Cervical Cancer Initiative, I wrote the "Proposal" requesting funding from the various government support agencies and submitted it on behalf of the Cervical Cancer Initiative. The project obtained "Funding" from Human Resources Development Canada to hire (6) students. I then took the job description that was included with the proposal and interviewed and selected a

    8. Penile Cancer, Cervical Cancer And Circumcision Status
    History Penile cancer - cervical cancer in partners - References
    Penile cancer, cervical cancer, and circumcision
    The alleged relationship between "lack of circumcision" and genital cancers formerly implicated smegma or smegma-borne pathogens as the causative agent. Only two histologic studies of human smegma ever have been conducted, both of which found it to be perfectly harmless. Smegma is composed of secretions of ectopic sebaceous glands in the prepuce mixed with secretions of the prostate, seminal vesicles, mucin from the urethral glands, and desquamated epithelial cells. The hypothesis that human male smegma is carcinogenic was first formulated in 1932 by circumcision promoter Abraham L. Wolbarst, M.D. . Wolbarst also believed that circumcision prevented epilepsy. (In the early part of the 20th Century, the paroxysm of masturbation in children was often misidentified as an epileptic seizure.) Wolbarst wrote: "[Circumcision] diminishes the tendency to masturbation, convulsions and other reflex phenomena of local irritation." Wolbarst's beliefs about circumcision were shared by other writers, such as Peter Remondino and Abraham Ravich. No laboratory or clinical research had been done on the subject at the time. Regardless, Wolbarst's hypothesis about smegma and cancer found its way into early medical textbooks. In the 1950s a few experiments were done to test the hypothesis by injecting horse smegma into wounds made in the backs of mice. There were clinical studies that attempted to induce cancer by introducing smegma subcutaneously and intravaginally: No carcinomas could be induced.

Urethral Cancer RESOURCES HealthProfiler Education Links Questions to Ask Your Physician Self Help Videos ABOUT US Pressroom Testimonials Overview Cervical cancer develops in the lining of the cervix, the lower part of the uterus (womb) that enters the vagina (birth canal). This condition usually develops over time. Normal cervical cells may gradually undergo changes to become precancerous and then cancerous. Cervical intraepithelial neoplasia ( CIN ) is the term used to describe these abnormal changes. CIN is classified according to the degree of cell abnormality. Low-grade CIN indicates a minimal change in the cells and high-grade CIN indicates a greater degree of abnormality. CIN may progress to squamous intraepithelial lesion ( SIL ; condition that precedes cervical cancer) or to carcinoma in situ (cancer that does not extend beyond the epithelial membrane). SIL is also classified as low-grade or high-grade. High-grade SIL and carcinoma in situ may progress to

    Yes. It could save your life. Pap smears are used primarily to detect cancer of the uterine cervix or precancerous conditions - abnormalities of the cervix that may lead to cancer. Since its introduction in the early 1940's, the Pap smear is credited with saving tens of thousands of women's lives and decreasing deaths from cervical cancer by more than 70%. The key is early detection made possible by microscopic examination of a specially treated sample of cervical cells. Every woman should have an annual Pap smear as part of a complete pelvic examination beginning when she becomes sexually active or reaches 18 years of age and continuing for the rest of her life.

    The National Breast and Cervical Cancer Early Detection Program helps low-income, uninsured, and underserved women gain access to lifesaving early detection screening programs for breast and cervical cancers. Many deaths from breast and cervical cancers—which will occur disproportionately among women who are uninsured or underinsured—could be avoided by increasing cancer screening rates among all women at risk. Mammograms and Papanicolaou (Pap) tests are underused by women who have less than a high school education, are older, live below the poverty level, or are members of certain racial and ethnic minority groups. Studies show that early detection of breast and cervical cancers saves lives. Timely mammography screening among women aged 40 or older could prevent 15% to 30% of all deaths from breast cancer. Detection and treatment of precancerous lesions found during a Pap test can actually prevent cervical cancer, as well as find cervical cancer at an early stage when it is most curable.
