Pap smear promotes health awareness

-

LIFE Empangeni Private Hospital and resident gynaecolog­ist and obstetrici­an, Dr Nonjabulo Dladla, will be conducting a Pap smear drive on Saturday, 17

August.

This initiative serves to remind women to take care of their health during Women’s Month and beyond.

A Pap smear is a painless and quick procedure to detect early cell changes in the neck of the womb, which could progress to cancer.

Cervical cancer is a type of cancer that develops in the cervix. Before developing into cancer, cervical cells undergo abnormal changes that a Pap test can detect.

With early diagnosis and appropriat­e treatment, the chances of surviving cervical cancer are good. Spaces are limited, so secure an appointmen­t as soon as possible. Contact Buyi Mthiyane on
