Hi there, I’m Dr. Todd Hoffman, Chief Medical Officer at Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Oklahoma, and I’ve got a message about two important preventative screenings for women. It’s important for women to discuss women’s screenings with their health care provider or women’s specialist. A cervical cancer screening, or a Pap test, is recommended every three years beginning at age 21 and continuing until age 65. How often you are screened can vary depending on the type of screening and your individual health status. A mammogram, which is a breast X-ray to screen for breast cancer, may be recommended every year or two beginning at age 40. Call and schedule your appointment to have a conversation with your health care provider about when you should be screened. Cervical and breast cancer screenings can and do save lives. As always, be sure to talk to your health care provider about any health care questions or concerns that you may have. Thank you and be well.
