Women Asked to Embrace Regular Cervical Cancer Testing

Women have been urged to embrace regular cervical cancer screening.

The appeal was made by the President of the Rotary Club of Kasese, Augustine Muserero at Mayor's Gardens in Kasese town shortly after the 2018 Rotary Cancer Run.

According to Muserero, many women were silently dying with the disease which can be contained if diagnosed in its early stages.

Muserero urges women to use any opportunity that comes their way to test for cancer of the cervix such that they start early medication.

Fifteen percent of women who turned-up at Kasese Community and Medical Center during the health camp tested positive to cervical cancer.  The camp was one of activities of the 2018 Cancer run.

Muserero also appealed to all people to involve themselves in activities geared towards the elimination of all the different types of Cancer.

Jesca Twakirane from Kasese Community Medical Centre called on women to make more regular and frequent tests of the disease so as to contain it in its initial stages.

Twakirane also warned all people against bad life practices like poor eating habits and lack of physical exercises which she said increases risks of contracting cancerous diseases.
