The health issue this week... I picked this image randomly on google. This post and the next two or so are intended to create awareness on cervical cancer prevention, early diagnosis and treatment. Cervical Cancer is one of the most commonly diagnosed cancers in Africa today. It is the easiest gynecologic cancer to prevent and treat if caught early. In our set up most patients seek medical advice when the cancer has already progressed to the last stages. The cervix as shown in the photo is the opening of the uterus into the vagina. The main cause of cervical cancer is the human pappilomavirus(HPV) which is transmitted through sexual contact. There are many types of HPV that can infect the cervix, vagina and vulva. Low risk types may cause genital warts while the high risk types may cause cancer of the cervix. Please note that most women who are infected with HPV will never have any symptoms. Only women with persistent HPV are at risk of cervical Cancer. More than 75% of sexually active women have been exposed to HPV by age 18-22...continued on the next post. #cancer #cervicalcancer #cervicalcancerawareness #letstalkcancer #kickoutcervicalcancer #africanwoman #itsanafricanwomansworld

Research suggests that about 1 in 10 deaths in Papua New Guinea is because of cancer. Its your responsibility to know what cancer is, the risks, how to identify it and more importantly, how to prevent yourself and the ones you love from getting it. We hosted our Let's Talk Cancer chat today with our staff and friends for lunch, to do our part in helping to raise awareness on cancer. Thank you to the team from the Papua New Guinea Cancer Foundation(Jimmy & Priscillar) for joining us and sharing today, and to the whole team for the great campaign! We look forward to continuing the conversation and further education. A Clean Generation is a healthy generation! So make sure you're eating healthy, exercising and not putting yourself at risk of getting a form of cancer.  #cleangen #letstalkcancer
