VARANASI: While the adventurous expedition of Michele Baldwin has underlined the lack of awareness about the cervical cancer, which claims lives of lakhs of women annually, health experts, including gynaecologists believe that early diagnosis and prevention could break the stranglehold of the cancer that starts in the reproductive age in girls.

As per Dr Sudha Singh, senior gynaecologist and president, Federation of Obstetric and Gynaecological Societies of India ( FOGSI), 'India has a population of 366.58 million women, aged 15 years and older who are at risk of developing cervical cancer. The risk can be reduced if a woman follows the comprehensive mechanism of awareness, screening and vaccination.
