Women must be aware that cervical cancer is preventable with timely screening and detection. Women can work towards reducing their risk of cervical cancer by attending screening sessions, but this is one area which poses a huge challenge, as many do not take up cervical cancer screening invitations. This simple step can actually save many lives from cervical cancer
