Early Detection Saves Lives: Medicationdiscountcard.com Now Offers Education and Coupons for Cervical Health Awareness Month
Date:1/30/2016

Cervical health is vital in protecting the lives of women. It’s estimated that up to 12,000 women are diagnosed with cervical cancer per month. The good news is that cervical cancer can be prevented. In preparation for Cervical Cancer Awareness Month, Medicationdiscountcard.com proudly offers free discount cards, saving patients money on necessary prescription costs.

Cervical Cancer

The cervix is a narrow opening between the vagina and the uterus in females. The cervix is usually around one inch across, and is made up of soft tissues and cartilage. Cancer is the unchecked growth of cell tissue, and can strike any part of the body. In cervical cancer, malignant tumors begin to grow on the cervix, often spreading to other parts of the body. Untreated, cervical cancer can quickly lead to death. Researchers believe that the Human Papillomavirus (HPV) is the largest contributing factor leading to the development of cervical cancer.

HPV

The HPV virus is the most common sexually transmitted infection in the U.S. It is usually contracted early in one’s sexual maturity. Because HPV infection is so common, many people will become infected with it over their lifetimes. The body’s immune system usually keeps the virus in check. But for certain unlucky individuals, HPV can lead to genital warts, vaginal and penis cancers, as well as throat and cervical cancers. Pregnant women should speak to their doctor about the possibility of passing a known HPV infection on to their unborn child, as well.

Vaccination against HPV is now a very common practice in many parts of the U.S.
Patients may use a Gardasil coupon to use with their prescription.

Genital Warts (HPV virus)

Genital warts are flat, sometimes wide growths on the penis in men, on or in the vagina in women, and around the rectal area for both men and women. Genital warts can be painless, but are often itchy and inflamed. Sometimes flare-ups of warts can go away; but the virus that causes them is always present in an infected individual. Only the immune system – bolstered with vaccines – keeps the virus in check. Genital warts are highly contagious, and only abstinence (no sex with an infected individual) or protected sex (condoms) protect individuals from infection with any reliability. Outbreaks of warts are treated directly with topical creams. Patients may print an Aldara coupon or a Condylox discount card to use with their prescriptions.

Cervical Cancer

Cancers of any type are devastating, and wreck financial ruin on entire families; even families with insurance. The costs of cancer-treatment procedures and prescriptions can quickly spiral out of control. Using discount cards from Medicationdiscountcard.com is one of the many ways that patients can begin to seek financial relief from the burden of this disease.

The Center for Disease Control (CDC) reports that cervical cancer used to be one of the leading causes of death among women. Due to regular pap smear testing, and recent advances in HPV vaccinations, cervical cancer rates have dropped significantly. It is one of the few success stories in cancer medical history. However, cervical cancer has no cure, and patients must do their part; requesting pap smears and vaccinations from their primary care doctor.
