Girls as young as 15 could be diagnosed with cervical cancer – the fourth leading cause of death of women in Malaysia. But it can be easily treated if detected early. With your help, we can provide screening (Pap Smear) and reduce the risk of cervical cancer.
About The Organisation
The National Cancer Society of Malaysia (NCSM) has been providing education, care and support services for people affected by cancer since 1966. We are the only charitable organization that provides a holistic cancer support to patients and caregivers.
With centres located in 6 states in Malaysia, we assist our patients in understanding and dealing with cancer in various phases.
At NCSM, we believe that our initiatives to educate the public on prevention, screening and early detection of cancer will save thousands of lives. With public support, we can continue empowering those affected with cancer to maintain the highest possible quality of life.
Every year, more than 2,000 women are diagnosed with cervical cancer with 621 deaths reported. As we see a rise in cases of cervical cancer in younger women, we want to reach out to women above 30 years old to reduce their risk of getting cancer by 70%.
We target to run cervical cancer awareness talks and provide free Pap Smear screening in Klang Valley, Negeri Sembilan, Pahang and Melaka. With our experts giving consultations, women are able to learn to pick up early symptoms that are treatable and curable.
Who Are They?
There is an increase of women affected by cervical cancer. It occurs when abnormal cells on the cervix grow out of control.
What’s causing the numbers to rise is that there is a lack of urgency in women to go for cancer screenings. Due to cultural norms, Malaysian women tend to be shy when it comes to discussing genital and sexual health.
We believe that cancer education and promoting early screening, safe sex, proper diet and a healthy lifestyle will help save the lives of many.
