  • Cancer Prevention 

     Breast Cancer

    Routine breast exams are important because early detection of breast cancer saves many thousands of lives each year.

    Jefferson County Public Health is committed to increasing awareness and providing early detection services within the county by providing routine Women's Wellness Exams, which include:

      • Clinical breast exams
      • Pap tests
      • Pelvic exams

     Cervical Cancer

    Cervical cancer screenings should start at the age of 21 with a Pap smear.  As long as test results are normal, women should then have a pap smear every 3 years until age 30, and then every 5 years after that if they are also tested for HPV at the same time.

    If there is an abnormal result, Jefferson County Public Health can provide case management to assist a patient to stay on track with all recommended follow up.

    Although yearly Pap smears are no longer recommended by women’s health experts, women should still get an annual wellness exam every year to monitor their health. A Pap smear is only one small part of a wellness visit.

    Women (and men) between the ages of 9-26 can also receive the HPV vaccine to prevent HPV infection, which causes most types of cervical cancer. 

    To schedule an appointment at the Lakewood clinic, please call: (303) 239-7078.
