Unfortunately, a recent study shows that woman are dying from cervical cancer at a much higher rate than previously thought. According to an article from CNN, based upon a study from the medical journal Cancer, black women are dying from cervical cancer at a rate 77% higher than previously thought and white women are dying at a rate 47% higher,

Often, cervical cancer is not timely and properly diagnosed in New York due to medical negligence. When this occurs, the damages can be catastrophic and fatal. The cancer is allowed to spread until it becomes untreatable and incurable. As with most female reproductive cancers, early diagnosis is key to an effective treatment and the best possible outcome. Your chances of surviving cervical cancer increase the earlier your doctor is able to detect and diagnose your condition accurately. However, if your doctor misses key signs of cancer in the reproductive system, treatment options become more aggressive, invasive, and drastic.
