Every day we learn something that solidifies the fact that being a woman is really hard. Not only do women have to face the daily inequalities in life but they’re also under the constant fear of getting cancer. Just as breast cancer is very common among women so is cervical cancer. We’re glad that celebrities like Joey King are taking the initiative to educate their fans about this common disease shared among most of the women.

Joey King Gets Pap Smear

For those who don’t know what pap smear, we’ll first like to describe it. A Pap smear, also called a Pap test, is a procedure to test for cervical cancer in women. A Pap smear involves collecting cells from your cervix — the lower, narrow end of your uterus. Detecting cervical cancer early with a Pap smear gives you a greater chance at a cure.

Joey King in an Instagram post posts a picture of herself from the hospital after getting a pap smear. In the caption of the post, she emphasizes the importance of getting the test regularly.

She writes:

Being a woman is hard enough as it is, then the added the stress of having to worry about cervix and breast cancer is not anyones idea of fun. Please check your beautiful tatas and get your Pap smears my friends. One Well-Woman Exam could save your life. I did mine this year, did you do yours?
