How can you reduce the risk of cervical cancer? By attending Cervical Screening when the opportunity presents, by knowing the symptoms of Cervical Cancer and seeking Professional Medical Advice should you experience any symptoms, by taking up the HPV Vaccination if you are aged between 11yrs and 18 yrs. of age, and by knowing how to access support and information as required.
