MDC Senator for Midlands, Lilian Timveos said that Zimbabwean women find it difficult to undergo cancer screening as they are too self-conscious. Speaking at the launch of this year’s World Aids Day theme and logo at a local hotel in Harare on Tuesday Timveos said

Women open legs when giving birth and other things, but when it comes to issues that save their lives, they don’t want to… They shy away from early screening and only do so in advanced stages of the disease when not much can be done to reverse the effects. I want to tell you what stops women from going for early cervical cancer screening.

Women are afraid of opening their legs, but there is no way they can screen you without you opening your legs during the procedure. But women do not want that. Women, cervical cancer screening is not painful at all. As long as you are sexually active, go and get screened after every six months for cervical and breast cancer.
