Breast Cancer Screening
The Can Protect Foundation Screening Programme offers free breast screening to all women aged 50 – 70.
The aim of breast screening is to detect breast cancer at an early stage, often before the woman is aware of any problem. Early detection usually means simpler and more successful treatment. Scientific evidence shows that regular breast screening reduces the death rate from breast cancer.
Time to time free cancer screening camps are organized by Can Protect Foundation. During the screening camps we invite women for breast screening.
If you have any worries about breast screening or breast cancer, please write to us.
Cervical Cancer Screening
Cervical Screening is a test to check the health of the cervix, which is the lower part of the womb. For most women these tests find that everything is normal. However for about 1 in 20 women the test will show changes in the cells. Most of these changes will not lead to cancer.
Cervical cancer can often be prevented. The signs that it may develop can be spotted early on, so it can be stopped before it even gets started. Not going for cervical screening is one of the biggest risk factors for developing cervical cancer.
In our camps all women aged 25 – 64 are invited for cervical screening.
