Cervical cancer today: Survey of screening behaviors and attitudes Cervical cancer remains a serious threat to women’s health even as advances in screening technology result in earlier detection and more effective treatment.

Help spread the word by sharing this video to. We partnered with the Nurse Practitioners in Women’s Health to survey more than 2,000 women and 750 healthcare providers on their attitudes and behaviors related to cervical cancer screening. Compared to other racial/ethnic groups, Korean, Filipino, and Vietnamese American women experience high incidence rates of cervical cancer but low rates of cervical cancer screenings. This study examines the behaviors and attitudes towards screening in young Korean, Filipino, and Vietnamese American women (n=304) in the San Francisco Bay Area.

Results indicated. Cervical cancer is the most common cancer and a major cause of morbidity and mortality among women in Zimbabwe yet it is preventable, early detectable and highly curable. The objective of this study was to investigate knowledge, attitudes, beliefs and practices towards cervical cancer, its prevention and treatment in Harare, Zimbabwe. A new survey— Cervical Cancer Today: A National Survey of Attitudes and Behaviors —paints a picture of women and their healthcare providers as hesitant to changes in cervical cancer screening.

There is little information concerning the preventive behaviors against cervical cancer among women in Cambodia, a country without organized cervical cancer screening programs and national human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccination policies. We aimed to examine the cervical cancer knowledge, attitudes, and practices as well as cervical cancer. PURPOSE. To identify potential gaps in attitudes, knowledge, and institutional practices toward lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer/questioning (LGBTQ) patients, a national survey of oncologists at National Cancer Institute–Designated Comprehensive Cancer Centers was conducted to measure these attributes related to LGBTQ patients and desire for.

  • Were you sedated for your procedure? I am having leep done as well and I was told I won’t have any recollection of the procedure it’s self. I’ve never had a surgery before so I’m anxious about it but know it has to be done. (I have CIN-3)

  • Informative video. I have to admit that herbs are nature’s own contribution to maintaining our health. Dr. Sebi and other herbalist have been able to treat seemingly incurable diseases with success by using herbs. I got a first-hand experience when I was diagnosed with cancer in 2015. I tried everything possible to get rid of it, all to no avail. I almost lost hope when I came across Dr. Aliyu from a testimony I read online. He is a herbal specialist. He prepared a herbal medication which was very effective against the cancerous cells. Today I am cancer free and I have Dr. Aliyu to thank for saving my life. This may not be for you but anyone who wishes to reach out to Dr. Aliyu, he can be reached at dr.aliyuherbaltreatment[@]gmail[.]com. I hope you find solution to any health challenge you suffer. All the best!

  • Can’t believe you posted this almost two years ago and have got no comments. Well here’s my take; cervical screening is not for everyone. It should be a voluntary, informed choice. I had my first and only one at 19, and decided never to have another one. It was the right decision for me. I am now 51 and do not regret my choice. I do regret I had the first one.

  • I had abnormal cells but received substandard care fighting to get private care I have aspergers syndrome and very distressed. As I have disability I was unable to make informed desicion people I live with are trying to police my body and I am trying to go abroad. The clinic are overtaxed and I need a more specialist approach. I’m scared. Mum is trying to get my a private gynae.

  • I was diagnosed with HPV 6 years ago.. four years ago it didnt show up again during my pregnancy. The last few months I have had weird symptoms and went in for a pap smear three days ago.

  • Cancer relief
    My name is Rameshwar Prasad, I am a truck driver. I felt neck pain in March 2011. At that time I was in Gujarat. My pain gradually increased and it became difficult to drive. When I showed the doctors at SMS Hospital, Jaipur, they declared cancer and Declare and sent my report to Mumbai for investigation. The cancer report was confirmed from there, I showed it at Mahaveer Cancer Private Hospital Jaipur. He started giving chemotherapy after seeing the report and he wrote 45 seconds of chemotherapy.

      My condition was very bad, new tongue had come out on top of the tongue in my mouth, due to which I could not even drink water and I also had difficulty breathing. Did not sleep due to pain at night, used to wake up all night. Gradually, after 33 seconds of chemotherapy, my condition was continuously deteriorating.

      In May 2011, my nephew Maleram showed me the CD of Gurudev and told him to chant Gurudev’s mantra intensively. And he made me sit together and meditate. Two or three days did not meditate, then I prayed fervently to Gurudev, either cure my illness, or lift me up from this world. Then I started meditating, sweet juice started coming in my mouth and my pain disappeared. After 8 days when I showed the doctors, they expressed surprise that my second ejected tongue had also disappeared. And after chemotherapy I still came as usual. When people used to come on a stretcher only, they are not able to move. Even at that time, I kept on chanting Gurumantra.

      One day at night I saw a black man dressed in black with no hair on his head coming towards me. I had an ax, I picked up the ax and told him that if he comes to my side, he will hit you. Then suddenly Gurudev appeared and told me that you go out, I talk to him. After that, when I woke up in the morning, my pain completely disappeared. After that I had complete faith in Gurudev and I threw all the medicines and surrendered completely at the feet of Gurudev.

      Today I am fully healthy by the grace of Gurudev, and now I have started eating food, earlier the mouth used to be dry, now saliva has also started forming in the mouth. I want to tell everyone that if you all meditate on Gurudev, you will surely get fruit, because I have also got it.

      Gurudev gave me new life, this body is the gift of Gurudev. The nephew’s wife was mad at my house. Doctors declared him insane in Jaipur. My nephew chanted her by sitting near her and got her done too. Today she is completely fine with the grace of Gurudev and does all the household chores correctly.

I’ve been having bleeding after intercourse for a month now and I’m due a smear next month (last one was 3 years ago) I’ve got pelvic pain most of the time and my periods are a little off their due dates and seem to stop and start whilst in flo. I’m waiting for an appointment to come through, I’ve been put on a two week waiting list… the Coronavirus isn’t helping at the moment as I can’t get in to the doctors easily. My fingers are crossed it’s not cervical cancer although the symptoms are there I seem to be thinking the worst.
