HPV & Cervical Cancer

Cervical Cancer Awareness Month 

Based on data released by Ministry of Health, cervical cancer is the 3rd common cancer in the country, follow after Breast Cancer and Colo-rectal Cancer.  

Yearly, more than 2000 new cases discovered and more than 600 women died due to cervical cancer. 

This is pretty disappointed with the fact that there are available screening in each of clinics and hospitals. From the conventional Pap Smear till Liquid Based Cytology and now HPV DNA, which in certain cases, it considers a substitute test of Pap Smear are available. 

However, the studies show that only 50% of women going for cervical screening every year, compared to 75% to 90% in developed countries. Some are not keen to be seen by male gynaecologists.
