Liquid Based Cytology
- The early detection program aims at finding and treating early signs of cancer of the cervix. The screening involves taking a Liquid Based Cytology (LBC), which is a simple, quick vaginal examination to check if the cervix is healthy. Some cells are gently wiped off the cervix and sent to the laboratory for testing.
- The early detection of abnormal cells means further investigations can be done and treatment can be given if necessary, thereby preventing cancer from developing.
