2009 Cervical Cancer Screening Guidelines, by Dr. Therese Bevers

In this Oct. 2009 video on YouTube, Dr. Therese Bevers talks about new screening guidelines for cervical cancer. Women at increased risk have a higher chance of getting cervical cancer than women at average risk.

Women at increased risk include those who have:

  • History of cervical cancer or severe cervical dysplasia (pre-cancer)
  • Persistent Human Papilloma Virus (HPV) infection after age 30 (HPV testing not recommended in women younger than age 30)
  • An immune system that does not function properly
  • Been infected with Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV)
  • Diethylstilbestrol DES exposure before birth
