Say No to Cervical Cancer!
Sometime back one of my teacher was diagnosed with cervical cancer , she was a very active lady and this made her life upside down! She had already crossed the initial stages and had to remove her uterus and undergo chemo!
As per New York Times Cervical cancer is the third most common cancer found in women in the world. This cancer is caused by HPV viruses. If we found the disease in early stages it can be cured completely.
Even though there will not be any symptoms on the early stages we can find if there is any abnormality in our cervical tissues by a regular PAP test.
During this test the doctor will take the tissues from cervix which is diagnosed under a microscope. If they found any abnormality in your cells they will refer for more tests and treatments like biopsy.
Some of the symptoms of cervical cancer includes:
Abnormal bleeding from vagina.
Pain and bleeding during intercourse.
Abnormal vaginal discharge.
I would suggest all the ladies out there to take a PAP test regularly and gentlemen, please take your ladies to the test,so that the cancer can be detected at early stages and can be treated.
Say no to cervical cancer!!
