According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), cervical cancer occurs most often in women over the age of 30, and approximately 12,000 women in the U.S. get cervical cancer each year. More African American and Hispanic/Latina women get cervical cancer than women of other races or ethnicities due to their decreased access to Pap testing or follow-up treatment, and rates of new cases are higher in rural areas.
