Brandon FL STD Testing
In 2019, the Florida Department of Health¹ placed the rate of bacterial STDs in Hillsborough County, Brandon inclusive, at 890.4 per 100,000 residents. A 2015 report by the Center for Diseases Control and Prevention (CDC)² also places Florida as the state with the highest number of HIV/AIDS diagnoses. It is crucial for sexually active residents in Hillsborough County and Brandon to have regular STD testing in order to reduce these numbers.
Common sexually transmitted diseases like gonorrhea, syphilis, HPV, herpes, hepatitis, and chlamydia are asymptomatic. This makes them difficult to detect until they’ve progressed to advanced stages and had an impact on your sexual health. You can also pass the disease onto others unknowingly. The only way to see if you’ve contracted any STDs is to get tested as soon as possible.
Priority STD Testing provides reliable, convenient and hassle-free testing services for sexually active adults in Brandon, Florida. You can book your appointment via our website and visit a lab near you for your screening. We have lab testing centers at 159 E. Bloomingdale Avenue and other nearby locations.
