September is gynecological cancer awareness month and SCF is spreading the word about gynecological cancers: ovarian, cervical, uterine, vaginal, and vulvar cancer. Please join us throughout the month to raise awareness and learn more about gynecological cancers.
Gynecological cancers can be uncomfortable or even embarrassing subjects to discuss. SCF is raising awareness about, and removing the stigma associated with, discussing female health issues. Let’s open the lines of communication and help all women feel comfortable discussing gynecological issues with their medical providers and with each other. All women have a shared responsibility with medical providers to make informed decisions about their health. Download the Know the Big 5 and Thrive informational guide here. If you still feel uncomfortable having the conversation, there is also a discussion card available designed to help women discuss gynecological cancer prevention with their provider, which can be found here.
