January is Cervical Health Awareness Month. In 2021, an estimated more than 14,000 new cases of cervical cancer were diagnosed in the U.S, according to the American Cancer Society. However, cervical cancer is very preventable, and detecting it at an early stage, gives a person the highest likelihood of treatment success.

This week we are talking to Dr. Jason Knight, Surgeon and Director of Gynecologic Oncology at Saint Luke’s Health System about the importance of cervical cancer screenings, HPV vaccines, and treatment options for those diagnosed at various stages.
