At least 100 women have received free cancer screening at Adigbe Primary HealthCare Centre, Obafemi Owode local government area of Ogun state.

The event, organized by an all-female Muslim group, Sisters of Jannah (SOJ), Abeokuta Zone in collaboration with the Ogun State Ministry of Health, was held in commemoration of the 2023 World Cancer Awareness Campaign.

The awareness was to uncover myths and truths about cancer, stages, preventions, and treatment that have contributed to the loss of lives.

Guest lecturer, Alh. Abdul-Waheed Elegbede, who is also the state health educator for Ogun State Primary HealthCare Development Board, noted that treatment is available if detected early.

 He stressed the need for regular check-ups, be they clinical or self-examination as early detection saves lives.

Elegbede charged women to always make it a duty to check their blood pressure, and sugar level and take advantage of the ongoing HPV vaccine by the state’s Ministry of Health for girls between the ages of 9 and 16 years, saying prevention is better than cure.

Highlights of the event include breast cancer screening, cervical cancer screening, health talk, and blood pressure.
