Cervical screening is a way of preventing cervical cancer from developing, and diagnosing the disease at an early pre-cancerous stage. One of the methods used in cervical screening is the Pap test (or ‘smear test’), among others.
Screening tests look for pre-cancerous changes in the cervix that could develop into cervical cancer. If the abnormal tissue or cells can be removed, then the disease can be prevented from developing and causing problems. The tests can also diagnose the disease by identifying cancer cells that are already present.
Such is the reason why the Hub is organizing a Health Sensitization Campaign in partnership with like-minded practioners such as Mildmay Uganda and Reproductive Health mainly focused on Cervical Cancer.
This event is scheduled to take place between the 17th and 21st of July at the Hub, Oasis Mall.
