House Call: Cervical Health Awareness Month
WSIL -- January is Cervical Health Awareness month.
It's a time to raise awareness about how women can protect themselves from the Human Papilloma-Virus or HPV.
Millions of Americans currently have HPV, the most common sexually transmitted disease, and it's a major cause of cervical cancer.
Doctor Scott Joyner from Heartland Women's Healthcare, says the biggest problem is women not getting yearly wellness checkups, to catch the disease in it's early stages.
