In this information session, Dr. Abraham Aragones discusses cervical cancer screening and prevention, including the importance of being vaccinated against the human papillomavirus (HPV). HPV causes at least 90% of cervical cancer cases worldwide.

MSK offers screening for cervical cancer at the Ralph Lauren Center (RLC) in Harlem. Advanced practice providers, like RLC nurse practitioner Claudia Ortiz (above), use the Pap test to find abnormal cells in the cervix before they turn into cancer.
