TIPs for ‘U’ n ‘i’

Assalamualaikum & Hi,We’re back with Tips for ‘U’ n ‘i’ segment, so today we’re going to talk about the importance of cervical screening. Do you know that cervical cancer is the second common cancer in Malaysia after ovary cancer? Cervix screening involves a test called a Papsmear test which can detect abnormal cells in the cervix before they become cancer. If these abnormal cells are found and treated early, cervical cancer can be stopped from developing. In order to combat cervical cancer up to 85%, you’re recommended to undergo the screening for every 3 years.

  • In Malaysia, all women who are, or who have been sexually active, between the ages of 20 and 65 years, are recommended to undergo Pap smear testing
  • If the first two consecutive Papsmear results are negative, screening every three years is recommended.  

Screening is very important! It can identify cancer at an early stage – before it can cause any symptoms. Cervical cancer usually has no symptoms. 
Symptoms of cervical cancer may include: 

  • Abnormal vaginal bleeding (such as bleeding in between periods, bleeding during/after sex or after menopause); 
  • Abnormal or persistent vaginal discharge; or,
  • Pelvic pain, or pain during sexual intercourse. 

If you experience any of these symptoms, seek for medical advice.
