caused an oil leakseant andrew shipotofsky." it's september 10th... which means it's time for our monthly segment "kezi 9 checks in". it's a monthly reminder on the 9th of the month, or in this case the 10th, for women to do a self breast exam... to check for any lumps or changes. and, this month, we're also focusing on preventing cervical cancer. here's kezi nine news anchor renee mccullough. (joining me now is dr. david herrmann from women's care. today wee talking about cervical cancer screening and prevention. let's start with what cervical cancer is? yep. cervical cancer is cancer of the cervix, which is the lowest part of the uterus. 7:58) (in terms of cancers it's pretty similar. it will keep growing if we don't do something to stop it and it can definitely be life threatening. is there anything women can do to lower their chances of getting cervical cancer? cut out the uh's and ahh's.. and cover with video absolutely. that's why i'm here. the main thing you can do to prevent cervical cancer is to be vaccinated against the human papilloma virus, or hpv. if someone's already been exposed to hpv, it could potentially be too late to get the vaccine and then the main thing people can do is complete their pap screening, hpv testing by seeing their doctor at least yearly.8:40 so how often should women get screened? you said yearly? and at what age should they start? we want to see everyone yearly. that doesn't necessarily mean we'll be doing paps or pap screenings yearly. that's a relatively recent change over the last few years for screenings, depending on the age or person's medical condition, we may screen as often as every six months for some populations, but in general for women between the ages of 21 and 30, we screen every three years and for women between 30 and 65 it can be as infrequent as every five years. 9:16) (10:23 and, the hpv vaccine. it's for boys and girls. correct? it is. and when should they get that? anybody can get that, starting at age nine. if populations get it between age 9 and 14, it's only two shots, which is nice. otherwise, it's three. or if we're catching up on the vaccine schedule, we're happy to take that over... and that's often something a patient will get at their pediatrician's office, but we're happy to do those vaccinations at our office as well. thank you for joining us today. that is great information. for more on important be sure to go to our website to sign up for kezi 9 checks in.. and we'll send you a reminder
