A MINISTRY of Health team conducting cervical cancer tests in

Lau Group confirmed 10 cases.

Team leader and Eastern Division medical officer Dr Eliki Nanovu said many women were taking advantage of the mobile cervical cancer test team which was a good sign because people were health conscious.

"Out of the 10 that were tested and confirmed to have the cervical cancer virus, two have been treated and will now have to attend regular review while eight will have to travel to Suva for more tests and treatment," Dr Nanovu said.

"It is a welcoming sign to see a lot of women coming to the nursing stations and health centres to get tested for cervical cancer."

After visiting Matuku, Totoya, Moala, Vanuavatu, Komo, Namuka, Ogea, Vatoa, Fulaga, Kabara, Oneata, Moce and Lakeba, the team detected eight out of the 10 tested to have the cervical cancer virus, and were referred to the CWM Hospital in Suva for further treatment.
