Today marks the begining of Cervical cancer awareness week. Local data can be found at the Gynaecological Cancer Hub, which shows that, for Tees Valley, about 1 woman per week is diagnosed with cervical cancer and about one woman per month dies. In addition, the BBC reports a BMJ article suggesting that the upper age limit for routine cervical screening needs to be increased.
