At Norris Cotton Cancer Center, we realize that health care isn't about insurance, medications, procedures or equipment — it's about people. It's our goal to provide the highest level of care for every person that walks through our doors.
Our patients talk to us — in their own words — about their challenges and their successes before, during, and after their care here. These people are your family, friends and neighbors. Listen to what they have to say about their experiences, and what it says about the level of care you can expect from Norris Cotton Cancer Center.
Episode Five: Cervical Cancer
Since the Pap test was introduced in 1947, the number of women with cervical cancer in the United States has gone down drastically – by 75%. This easy, inexpensive, accurate, and painless test detects early changes in the cells of the cervix. These changes, a pre-cancerous condition known as dysplasia, are completely treatable if found early. If left untreated, dysplasia can develop into cervical cancer. That is why routine screening with a Pap test is so important.
