Cervical cancer is the most preventable gynecologic cancer and affects roughly 13,800 women annually, with approximately 4,290 diagnosed cases resulting in death. The average 5-year survival rate is 66.1%, but this is not a representative figure for all women. Black women are disproportionately affected by cervical cancer: they have only a 58% 5-year survival rate compared to White women who have a 71% 5-year survival rate. Only 44% of cases are diagnosed at an early stage. One of the best ways of protecting yourself against cervical cancer is by receiving the HPV vaccine.
