Latinas are more prone to certain cancers?

Cervical cancer is a big one.

But did you know that most cases of cervical cancer among Latinas (and all women) can be prevented? How? Making sure that screenings are done starting at age 21 and women who are ages 21-29 get a Pap test every 3 years, don’t smoke, and encourage young women to get vaccinated now to help make this cancer part of the past.
