Poor response

A TEAM of specialists from India's Sayhadri Group of Hospitals says despite publicity efforts, only about 50 women visited them to be tested for breast cancer.

Comprising cardiologists, neurologists, orthopaedic doctors, pathologists and oncologists, the team was at the Lautoka Hospital for the final leg of a national free screening tour that began in Suva last week.

"Even females who think that everything is normal should still come in and get checked," said project co-ordinator Professor Manu Munibhargav.

About 900 people have been screened for other medical conditions in Labasa, Savusavu, Nausori, Ba and Lautoka.
