Abstract

Aim: The aim of this article is to investigate the need for free preventive examinations for cervical cancer.

Materials and Methods: A total of 120 women were randomly selected. The study was conducted in the period May 20-30, 2018 at the Complex Oncology Center - Shumen. The study used survey methods (direct, group, anonymous poll), literature analysis, documentary method. Data was processed by statistical and graphical analysis.

Results and Discussion:

All respondents said that free examinations would increase cervical cancer prevention, because the most vulnerable age group is between 30 and 50 years. It turned out that some of the respondents were suffering from a malignant neoplasm of the cervix, and have undergone chemotherapy, radiotherapy, and hormone therapy. This was a treatment, which has led to severe economic consequences in the financial situation of the family, which in turn reduced the possibility of follow-up preventive examinations. Some of the respondents were of low health culture and were unaware of the importance of prevention and the risk of the disease. This is a disease that has more and more victims at a young age due to the low economic standard of living, health culture, and the need for preventive examinations in risk groups. Organized free examinations enable a large proportion of the low-income population to benefit from this kind of medical examination.
