Women Urged To Get Screened for Cervical Cancer
As we hear nearly a thousand women die from cervical cancer in England every year now people in Birmingham are being invited to learn more about the disease.
Heartlands Hospital in Birmingham is hosting a free health talk with doctors explaining the causes, symptons and treatment of it, as it's been revealed it's the second most common cancer in women aged 35 and under.
Consultant gynaecologist Mr Raj Saha is hosting the talk:
"If diagnosed early, the outlook for those with cervical cancer will usually be very good and a complete cure is often possible. This is why it is so important for women who are between 25 and 49 years old to attend appointments every three years through the NHS national screening programme."
