MORE CHILDREN And DIFFERENT MEN Equal To CANCER -Dr. Quagy Siamalambwa


CHOMA General Hospital Gynecologist, Dr. Quagy Siamalambwa, says women with multiple partners and those who have birthed a lot of children are at risk of contracting Cervical Cancer.

He adds that women who also smoke tobacco put themselves at danger of getting developing Cervical Cancer.

Speaking during “Nseba Zyesu” Radio Programme on Byta FM Zambia, Siamalambwa said without constant screening, it is difficult for women to know if they have Cervical Cancer not until it has spread.

He explained that symptoms that appear when Cervical Cancer has spread include prolonged bleeding, bad smell and abdominal pains.

Siamalambwa urged women to regularly go for Cervical Cancer screening, avoid having too many sexual partners and practice safe sexual intercourse.

And Young Women Christian Association Southern Province Coordinator, Given Moyo, says it is saddening to see Zambia ranking as one of the countries with the highest cases of Cervical Cancer across the globe.

She has noted the need for government to intensify sensitization programmes on Cervical Cancer, further urging men who are not circumcised to do so in order to ensure less chances of transmitting the ailment.
