gynaeSept 10th is International Gynaecological Cancer Awareness Day 

In support of International Gynaecological Cancer Awareness Day, Panaceum Group is raising awareness through community education, empowering women and men to openly discuss Gynaecological issues. Normally a Taboo subject International Gynaecological Cancer Awareness Day aims to break down the barriers and stigmas around Gynaecological issues.

There is no need to live in silence and feel alone.

Did you know?:

  • Gynaecolocical cancers include ovarian, uterine, cervical and vulvar cancer.
  • The rate of all gynaecological cancers are significantly higher for Aboriginal and Torres Straight Islander women compared to non-Indigenous women (1.7 times more likely to be diagnosed).
  • Cervical cancer is the second most common cancer in women. In Australia, around 200 women die each year from cervical cancer. The vast majority of these women have not had regular Pap tests.
  • Regular Pap tests can prevent nine out of 10 cervical cancers, and still remain the best way for women to protect themselves against this cancer.

Having a regular Pap test could save your life.
