Kasama General Hospital Head of Clinical Care  Stephen Zulu says he is quite impressed with the high turnout of women accessing cancer screening services at his institution.




Dr. Zulu says so far over 396 women have under gone cervical cancer screening since the Centre become operational early this year.



ZANIS reports that the  Hospital Head of Clinical Care disclosed this in an interview  in Kasama today.




He lamented that so far 29 samples suspected of cancer related diseases were sent to UTH in Lusaka and only two were positive.




Dr. Zulu observed that the hospital is overwhelmed by the high number of people accessing the services at the Centre.




He discouraged women from using herbs as cervical cancer prevention as it makes the private parts vulnerable to the virus which causes cancer.




The Doctor has also appealed to women to take advantage of the facility at the institution and access the services being offered.




The first ever cancer screening center in Northern Province was opened in May this year.
