Cervical Cancer – Prevention, the Cure and COVID-19

January 19, 2021

Every year around 850 lives are lost to cervical cancer in the UK and it’s the fourth most common cancer among women globally. Yet it’s a preventable and curable disease if detected and treated early.

 

During cervical cancer awareness week, we talk about the importance of early diagnosis and regular screening and consider the impact COVID-19 is having on this.

Listen now to find out more about the potential symptoms to look out for, the treatment currently available and why letters sent out to women at risk can cause unnecessary worry, which is amplified by the ongoing pandemic.
