KNH offers free breast and cervical cancer screening
The Kenyatta National Hospital is conducting free breast and cervical cancer screening this week.
The exercise will be done at the Specialised Reproductive Health Clinic 66.
In a statement on Monday, the hospital said the campaign shows its commitment to sharing knowledge and best practices, supporting world-class research, contributing to national policy, training manpower and corporate social responsibility.
Cancer has been ranked the third highest killer of Kenyans after infectious diseases and cardiovascular illnesses, with cervical and breast cancer recording the highest cases. “Unlike other diseases that affect the patients with sudden and severe symptoms, some types of cancers affect the patients slowly without severe or physical symptoms and are highly ignored or misdiagnosed,” read the statement in part.
