Bevin Baughn, a health and wellness expert from Texas, spends much of her time advising others on how to keep themselves healthy, and now she’s using her Instagram platform to share a personal story about how the pap test saved her own life.
“Back in late January I did a routine pap test that came back just slightly abnormal. My doctor wanted to be on the safe side and do a small biopsy to get a better idea of what was going on. The results came back and I was diagnosed with cin III cervical dysplasia (highest degree of abnormal cells). If left untreated, this can turn into cervical cancer in the future so my doctor thought the best course of action was surgery to remove the cells.
I really wanted to share this to emphasize the importance of getting your regular check ups!…Knowledge is power and I believe I made the best decision to take care of my health in the long run.”
