National Cervical Cancer Awareness Week reminds us about importance of Pap Tests

Wednesday, November 19th, 2014

The Australian Cervical Cancer Foundation launches the annual National Cervical Cancer Awareness Week from 17 November to 24 November 2014.

During National Cervical Cancer Awareness Week, the foundation asks women to sign up to Get the Pap Text, the first national SMS initiative that reminds you when your next Pap Australian Cervical Cancer Foundationtest is due, so you don’t ever forget. Planning or going for a Pap test can be daunting, but it’s one of the most important tests against cervical cancer. A simple examination could save your life. Guidelines recommend that every woman from the ages of 18-70 who has ever had sex should have a Pap test every two years, whether or not they are still sexually active.

The National Cervical Screening Program says about one in every 10 women may receive an abnormal result. If this is the case, don’t panic, but discuss with your GP or Pap test provider what your options are.

Specialist Dr Georgina Tang is a highly experience Gynaecologist at Liverpool Day Surgery who your GP can refer to if there are abnormal results that need further investigation. Dr Tang is well known for her personalised and friendly approach with patients and she prides herself on providing the highest standard of care and strives to achieve the best outcome for her patients.

Dr Georgiana Tang has extensive experience within Gynaecology and Reproductive Medicine and sees her patients’ well-being and treatment successes as her main priority.

Appointments with Dr Georgina Tang are now available.
