todayThursday 25 January

share close

This week is Cervical Cancer Awareness Week – a campaign dedicated to making people aware about cervical cancer and the steps to take to reduce the risk of cancer

Every year around 2700 women in the UK are diagnosed with Cervical Cancer – but the good news is in most cases, it can be treated and cured.

As always, success all depends on catching it early – and starting treatment as soon as possible.

Cervical cancer is caused by a virus which usually affects sexually active women over the age of 35.

But it also can affect women who don’t have sex.

Dr Rosie joined us in the studio with advice on what symptoms to look out for – and the importance of screening and taking up your smear test.

Unfortunately, the very thought of having a smear test puts some women off getting checked.

In cases where the cancer isn’t detected, it can spread leading to further complications.

As Rosie said:  “The test is far better than the treatment”.

For those who need reassurance, the NHS have a great video which will put your mind at ease:
