A talk about cervical cancer with Mr Yatin Thakur

On Monday 25th October Jules Bottazzi interviewed Mr Yatin Thakur MD, DNBE, MRCOG, who specialises in gynaecology and obstetrics at Spire Hartswood Hospital, about cervical cancer - its causes, treatment and vaccination.

Mr Thakur discussed the HPV virus and known risk factors for cervical cancer, which include sexual activity, particularly from an early age. He reiterated the importance of regular cervical smears and discussed treatment options if a smear is found to be abnormal.

Mr Thakur also gave us the lowdown on how the vaccination works and stressed the importance of taking up the vaccination at school age as a preventative measure.
