Free Cervical Cancer Screening at Sturdy Hospital
Sturdy Memorial Hospital is offering free cervical cancer screenings on Thursday, June 21, from 6 – 8 p.m. in the Hospital’s LDRP outpatient department. The screenings will be conducted by Dr. Lawrence Greb, a board-certified obstetrician/gynecologist from The Foxboro Center for Women’s & Family Health, and will include Pap tests and pelvic exams.
The American Cancer Society estimates that over 12,000 women will be diagnosed with cervical cancer this year, and that over one-third of those cases will prove fatal. Regular Pap tests and pelvic exams help detect cancer in its early stages, increasing the effectiveness of treatment. These tests can also discover precancerous disorders that can be treated to prevent cancer from developing. All women, including those who have finished having children, are encouraged to have regular Pap tests and pelvic exams.
Pre-registration for this program is required by Monday, June 18. For more information or to register, please call 508/236-7015.
