ABOUT CERVICAL CANCER:

Cervical cancer is one of the few cancers that is preventable. Chronic infection with Human-Papilloma virus (HPV) is the major cause of cervical cancer. HPV is transmitted through sex and genital contact.  The virus causes changes in the cervical cells that can take about fifteen (15) years to become cervical cancer. If a woman goes for regular cervical screening, these abnormal changes can be detected early and the good news is Sebeccly Cancer Care has one of the best cervical screening programmes in Nigeria called “The TimeToScreen Alpha”.

The TimeToScreen Alpha provides comprehensive cervical cancer screening on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays 10 am – 3 pm.

Cervical Abnormalities: if after cervical cancer screening, and an abnormality is detected such as pre-cancer (stage 0 cervical cancer) or you test positive to the Human-Papilloma Virus, you will be required to have further testing and or treatment. The TimeToScreen Alpha clinic offers colposcopy and cryotherapy to treat stage 0 cervical cancer.
