Important!! Pap Tests, commonly given at annual check-ups are highly successful in detecting Cervical Cancer; however, Endometrial Cancer, Uterine Sarcoma, Ovarian Cancer, and Vulvar Cancer are not detected with the Pap Test. Therefore, if you are experiencing any of the symptoms below you should make certain to discuss them with your physician and not simply rely on the default tests associated with your check-up to discover that there is a problem.
There is much more information available through the Women's Cancer Network at www.wcn.org. Please check out that site, or contact your health care provider for more information.
