Cervical cancer is among the most common cancer among women. The risk of a woman being diagnosed with this cancer by the age of 85 is 1 in 162.
MWASA held an informative talk on cervical cancer for all women ages 40 and above earlier this month. Our ladies learnt how to recognize early signs of cervical cancer and what measures to take to keep themselves as healthy as possible.
It is important that cervical cancer is detected at early stage, even before it can be felt. The 5-year survival rate for this cancer is 74%. Making the effort to exercise daily and making regular appointments with your GP is a good measure to take to spot the signs of cervical cancer early.
Thank you to Jacqueline from SA Health for coming in for the informative talk; our ladies were definitely very grateful.
