Cervical cancer was once the number one cause of death from cancer in women. Thanks to cervical cancer screening with the Pap test, the number of women in the United States who develop cervical cancer has dropped a great deal. With cervical cancer screening doctors can find cancer early or treat changes in the cervix before they develop into cancer. The VA provides gynecologic care, including routine pelvic exams and cervical cancer screening, to eligible women Veterans. Please talk with your VA provider about cervical cancer screening. Your provider can schedule your Pap test at a VA facility or refer you to an outside provider for testing.
Women are now the fastest growing subgroup of U.S. Veterans. The number of women Veterans is expected to increase dramatically in the next 10 years, and VA health care is expected to be in high demand by the women Veterans of Operation Enduring Freedom and Operation Iraqi Freedom. The Department of Veterans Affairs understands the health care needs of women Veterans and is committed to meeting these needs. Women Veterans served and they deserve the best quality care.
