Chlamydia
 

Chlamydia is one of the most common sexually transmitted diseases affecting more than 2 million people in the United States every year. Symptoms often go unnoticed or fail to appear at all, giving Chlamydia the nickname “The Silent Disease”. Chlamydia is easily treatable with a course of antibiotics but prolonged infection can cause serious damage to the reproductive organs. If you are sexually active and are between the ages of 16-24, get screened for Chlamydia every year.


Breast Cancer

Approximately 1,260 women in New York City die from breast cancer every year and 1 out of 8 women develop this disease in her lifetime. Mammograms are the key to early detection. Women 40 years and older should have a mammogram every one to two years to check for breast cancer.


Cervical Cancer

All women are at risk for cervical cancer and there are about 12,000 women in the United States who are diagnosed with this disease every year. Women 21-64 years old should have a pap test as part of their routine gynecological exam to screen for cervical cancer every one to three years.
