Women’s health

Goawa Timm, councillor for Ward 76, with Cornelia Martheza, from Cancer Association of South Africa.

Women’s health was made a priority with free breast screening and pap smear tests at Lentegeur civic centre on Thursday October 21.

Cancer Association of South Africa (CANSA), the Lentegeur clinic’s dentistry department, Love Life and Epilepsy Centre co-hosted a campaign in honour of breast cancer awareness month.

A pap smear is a procedure in which a small brush or spatula is used to gently remove cells from the cervix.
