On today’s Let’s Talk Knoxville, Karen Overgaard is joined by Carla Boat and Judi Van Hulzen with Marion County Public Health. January is Cervical Health and Cervical Cancer Awareness month. For women, this means a regular PAP test, which checks for human papilloma virus, or HPV — the main cause of cervical cancer in women. These professionals talk about how it affects men and women alike, and how there is no test to check for HPV in men, and they talk about a vaccine that can protect against HPV.
