Awareness Could Save Your Life
The Cayman Islands Cancer Society teamed up with the Department of Sports March 15 to educate women on the variety of cancers they should be aware of.
“If a woman should get her pap-smear done on a regular basis, whether its once a year or every other year, based on what the doctor says, then abnormal cells can be caught and women can stand a chance of getting their cancer taken care of or the abnormal cells taken care of,” said Victoria Gray of the Cayman Islands Cancer Society.
We hear a lot about breast cancer, but that's not the only cancer that's specific to women. Women also face endometrial, ovarian and cervical cancers.
The night’s attendees got information on self examinations and the importance of seeing your doctor for other screenings.
