Doctor in the House: Why Aren’t Urban Women Screening for Cervical Cancer?

Dr George Lee returns to discuss the latest medical news. Expect deep insights delivered with generous humour. While other countries are talking about possibly eliminating cervical cancer, Malaysia is still seeing it ranking among the top three cancers in women. More worrying, the 2018 Malaysian Study on Cancer Survival showed that almost 40% of cervical cancers are still diagnosed at stages 3 and 4, where survival rates are lower. In conjunction with Cervical Cancer Awareness Month in January, we look at why screening rates are low among urban women, and how HPV self-tests could encourage more women to get screened.
