Please everyone, if there is just one thing you do for yourself, let that one thing be the ThinPrep Pap Test coupled with an HPV test. It really does save lives.  

HPV and cervical cancer do not know age, race, religion, sexual status, martial status, or socio-economic factors. Anyone, male or female, who are having any form of sexual contact are at risk for HPV. If they are lucky enough to have a strong immune system, then perhaps they will not get cancer. But for those of us that fall into the 10 percent that does get cancer, it is a very trying, life long struggle to overcome the fear of cancer and HPV.  

Even after having had cancer and treatment, you might still be at risk for HPV, except it can come in the form of head, neck and throat cancer, as well as vaginal and anal cancer.  

So please get your yearly Pap, along with an HPV test, because the hour or more it takes at the doctor is worth it if you do not have to go through a lifetime of wondering long after your cancer treatment is done.  

For more information, please check out the National Cervical Cancer Coalition at Also, you can get information about the Pap test at or visit [Link Removed] for more information about HPV!
