what's the connection?

what's the connection?

so ... women in poorer areas are 2x likely to get cervical cancer compared with women in better-off areas, and the main reason given is they are less likely to attend screening.

what i can't see is a connection - why should having less money mean you don't get yourself screened?

any thoughts?

I suspect that healthcare issues generally are given less priority by people living in poorer areas than in more well off areas.

Why this is the case though, I don't know really. Perhaps it's a matter of less education - people in poorer areas are not aware/not made aware of the importance of screening. Or perhaps it is because people in poorer areas are forced to get their healthcare through the NHS - with all the waiting lists involved in that - whereas the more well heeled patients can get immediate consultation through the private sector. That would skew the results a bit if the well off people have two options for healthcare as opposed to one.

If at first you don't succeed, failure may be your style.

The higher the number of sexual partners you have had, the higher the risk of contracting cervical cancer.

Council estate girls are all slags.

QED. :pimp:

I had a cervical smear last week and the nurse was saying Jade Goody has done at least one useful thing in her life as the number of girls getting checked has gone up since the publicity surrounding Jade.

Yes. If you've got a cervix, I'd be very worried if I were you.
