Greetings SC+W Family,
Our mission at Serenity, Courage & Wisdom is to be a resource that provides information regarding HPV, cervical and gynecologic cancers.
Did you know that January is Cervical Health Awareness Month? As the month comes and goes, we welcome you to follow our website as we introduce various terms, information, and resources related to women’s cervical and pelvic health.
HPV stands for human papillomavirus, which earns its name because some of the HPV types cause warts or papillomas, non-cancerous tumors. HPV is known as the main cause for most cases of cervical cancer. HPV can be broken up into two categories, Low Risk and High Risk.
