'Regular Screening Saves Lives From Cervical Cancer'

Singh applauding the efforts of Phulkari CAN said, "The City of Amritsar is suddenly all ears to the awareness & the need to know how to properly educate their children & how women should look after their health, particularly to ward off Cervical Cancer".

HPV is responsible for most cervical cancers.

Cervical cancer cases are soaring among women in their late 20s, even though the virus behind it has nearly been eliminated in younger generations, new figures show. "The chances of surviving cancer are at a record high, but there is always more we can do, as we continue to deliver our Long Term Plan".

The most effective method of preventing cervical cancer is through regular cervical screening, which allows detection of any early changes to the cells of the cervix.

Cervical screening rates rose by 70 per cent in 2009, after TV star Jade Goody's death from the disease.

Cervical cancer affects around 3,000 new women every year in the UK, Cancer Research UK statistics show. On average, cervical screening helps save the lives of approximately 4,500 women in England every year.

In the United Kingdom, women aged 25-to-64 who are registered with a GP are automatically invited for a smear test. In the United Kingdom, learned to diagnose the tumor at an early stage, then women sends the survey to detect changes of the cervix or to prove their absence.

Patients infected by China virus 'likely over a thousand'
Two men aged in their 60s have died in China after being struck by the virus, which is understood to have broken out in Wuhan . As on January 11, 41 Novel Coronavirus (nCoV ) confirmed infection case have been reported from China, of which one has died.


"We have a vaccine that's going to prevent cancer". She said: "I was young and healthy and hadn't experienced any symptoms, so to be told I had cervical cancer took me completely by surprise. We encourage women not to delay their screening and to talk to their doctor or call the Cancer Services Program".

'The link between preventing high-grade cervical disease and preventing cervical cancers has been proven by the success of cervical screening.

Once infected, via sexual contact, most fight off the virus naturally.

HPV is extremely common, as 80 per cent of men and women will have some type of HPV at some point in their lives and because it's so widespread, anyone who's been sexually active could get it.

Yet, of the more than 200 HPV strains, 13 have been linked to cancer.

Along with the HPV vaccine, smear tests are "the best way to protect against" the disease.

The removed area is then sent off for tests to determine the extent of the cell abnormalities.
