Vaccination Can Help Beat Cervical Cancer: Experts

Not only does a major chunk of the population know of the vaccine, they can also afford it. Yet, it has found few takers, revealed the survey conducted by ARTIST (Asian Research and Training Institute for Skill Transfer), a city-based institute. "About five years ago when I asked patients if they have been immunized against HPV, the answer would invariably be no. In the last two or three years, of around 50 patients I see in a month, 2 or 3 answer in the affirmative. Cervical cancer is a silent killer that shows no symptoms till it is too late," said Dr Hema Divakar, senior gynaecologist and chairperson of ARTIST.
