New screening programme for gynaecological cancers to open

May 4, 2024

The Barbados Cancer Society is working towards opening a new screening programme for gynaecological cancers.

That’s according to President Professor David Rosin.

He told CBC News that the new programme should be added to the Society’s list of services before the end of 2024.

Professor Rosin says that while women continue to come forward to be screened for breast cancers, men are not as willing to get tested for prostate cancer which is the most common on the island.

He says just over three hundred new prostate cancer cases are recorded annually.
