Cervical Cancer Free Screening

I should have posted this before Mothers Day para naman tamang-tama sana para sa kababaihan at hindi a day after but as the saying goes "Better Late than Later".

The Department of Health is giving a month long free cervical cancer screening for women within the age of 30 to 45. This is being offered at all 58 DOH accredited hospitals nationwide in accordance with the celebration of the Cervical Cancer Awareness Month.

For NCR the free screening is available every Mondays of the May.
For Luzon it will be every Wednesdays of May.
For Visayas it will be for Thusrdays of May.
It will be available every Fridays of May in Mindanao.

Cervical cancer occurs when normal cells in the cervix change into cancer cells. It is usually caused by a chronic and persistent cancer-causing type of Human Papilloma Virus (HPV) infection that leads to pre-malignant lesions and progress to cancer.

Kindly tell your moms and all the women you love about this.
