WOMEN in the west have been urged to come out and be tested for cancer.
Fiji Cancer Society's western president, Milika Wata Marshall said testing was important for early detection because more than 100 women died of cancer each year in Fiji.
She said early testing would avoid late presentation to hospitals.
"Our target is to test more women this year since most are not coming out for the tests despite several calls," she said. "Patients who present very late don't have a good outcome," she said.
