Prevention is power – screen for HPV regularly
Human papillomavirus (HPV) is one of the most common sexually transmitted infections. According to the CDC more that 42 million people are infected with the types of HPV that can lead to cancer.
Most cases of cervical cancer are caused by HPV. However, regular screening can detect abnormal cells early, when treatment is most effective.
It is currently estimated that about 80% of women and 90% of men will have an HPV infection at some point in their lives.
HPV is spread through skin to skin contact, meaning you can get it without having sex, even though its classified as the most common STI.
Both vaginal and penile cancers are often caused by HPV. Pre-cancerous cells and cancers caused by HPV are more treatable if detected at early stages.
You’re not too young for colon cancer – don’t ignore the early signs and get screened
While it is more common in people over 50, people as young as 20 can get colorectal cancer. Regular colorectal cancer screenings are essential for detecting cancer early, which can increase your chances for successful treatment and recovery.
Colon cancer can affect people of all ages, including young adults. It’s important to pay attention to early warning signs and get screened, regardless of your age.
According to recent research, there has been a significant increase in the number of colon cancer cases diagnosed among young adults aged 20 to 29.
Common early symptoms include abdominal pain, rectal bleeding, ongoing diarrhea, and iron deficiency anemia.
Colon cancer is a serious health concern and is the third leading cause of cancer-related deaths in the United States, with over 50,000 deaths reported annually.
The good news is that if colon cancer is detected early, the five-year survival rate is over 90%. This highlights the importance of timely screening and early intervention.
