As part of Cervical Cancer Prevention week, charities are raising awareness of cervical cancer symptoms.
Charity Jo's Cervical Cancer Trust said that most women dismiss symptoms as 'just part and parcel of being a woman.'
Symptoms for cervical cancer like abnormal bleeding and pain during sex can be quite common, so it's understandable that women may not take urgent action.
However, it is worrying to see that many are prepared to put up with these conditions, dismissing them as normal and just part and parcel of being a woman.
Every day in the UK nine women are diagnosed and nearly three women die from the disease. Early detection is, therefore, key to improving survival rates and quality of life.
