This is Everything you need to know about Cervical Cancer – Prevention, Symptoms & Risk Factors

Cervical cancer is preventable, yet it is the 2nd most common cancer among women in Nigeria. CancerAware Nigeria, a cancer intervention non-profit organisation has been running an intensive campaign to educate Nigerians about cervical cancer, its risk factors, screening options, e.t.c. They have put together a Cervical Cancer Factsheet to address some of the common questions.   What is Cervical Cancer? Cervical cancer is a type of cancer that develops on the cervix of a woman. The cervix is the narrow part of the lower uterus, which is often referred to as the neck of the womb. Cervical cancer occurs when abnormal cells on the cervix start to grow out of control. What is the main risk factor for Cervical Cancer? Most cervical cancer is caused by a virus called human papillomavirus or HPV for short. HPV is the most common sexually transmitted infection. Most sexually active individuals – male and female will get HPV at one point in their lives without knowing. In most cases, the body’s immune system usually clears it. However, in some cases, some types of HPV can go on to cause cervical cancer in women. It can persist in the woman without showing any signs or symptoms, in some cases for years. In addition to cervical cancer, some types of HPV can also cause cancer of the vulva and vagina in women, penile cancer in men, and cancers of the anus, mouth and throat in both men and women. How does HPV cause Cervical Cancer? High-risk human papillomavirus (HPV) leads to cancer because they cause changes in the cells of the cervix. Initially, these are precancerous changes that can be detected with screening tests. Over time, the precancerous cells can develop into cancer cells. After cancer has developed, it then spreads within the cervix and eventually to surrounding areas. Video Player 00:00 00:57 What are the symptoms of HPV? Unfortunately, HPV has no signs or symptoms.

Olori Wuraola is on a Mission to change the Society’s attitude towards Domestic Violence & Sexual Abuse

Olori Wuraola Zaynab Otiti Ogunwusi says that she will not rest until she has contributed her quota towards changing the way the African society views violence against women. The world class monarch and highest queen in South West Nigeria had recently shocked the world by marching on the streets of Lagos to condemn and raise awareness against the scourge of gender based violence and sexual abuse victimizing women in Africa. Her campaign called #1in3Africa was to be the first time ever a globally renowned monarch was to be involved in such a grassroots activism to fight a social malady that is fast growing to point of a pandemic. Now she has revealed that this is the beginning of the struggle and anyone who views this act as horrendous should join in the eradication of this epidemic. The March in Port-Harcourt and in Abuja dates are yet to be disclosed. She also hopes that through this process will start a proceeding towards having a bill passed that will accord more protection for Nigerian women at the hands of potential abusers. She says her organization will set up help lines for women undergoing abuse to obtain help, create communication systems to create awareness against the crime and also employ other means such as counseling and rehabs to restore women who have suffered abuse. She also plans to drive for more arrests and prosecutions of more offenders. In explaining her motivation for getting involved in such activism, Olori Wuraola said: “Many people have expressed shock that a queen will get involved in a street march of this nature. But then, that is the whole point! I have been so shocked by what I see the society turning into that I am left with no choice than to march in the streets to raise awareness against this malady, if that is what I have to do. People can be quick to condemn flimsy things without condemning injustice I run a foundation that cares for rural women. I have seen women who are so afraid of their husbands that they are afraid of coming out to receive economic empowerment, preferring to remain in abject poverty, rather than be subjected to battery by overbearing husbands, who want them to remain in subjugation. A man you should love and respect suddenly wants you to be scared of him. Marriage is partnership and that’s how it works. I find it so hard to believe that such a deep rooted evil in our …

Seven places she wants you to kiss — besides her lips

​Women like kissing because it is an emotionally intimate act. However, beyond the lips, a woman still desires that you explore other erogenous areas in her body during the sex act! According to psychologist and author of sex books, Dr. Jill Weber, the following are the areas to explore in your woman’s body… • Nape of the neck. Start kissing at her neck, as there’s a certain vulnerability that drives her wild, says Jennifer Landa, author of The Sex Drive Solution for Women. • Small of the back. This is where all the nerves for the genitals originate, so stimulation of the lower back with massage and kissing and nibbling is a great way to stimulate the area,” says Dr. Landa. It’s also why she loves it when you place your hand on the small of her back when you’re out together — it’s an intimate, sexy gesture that makes a woman feel hot without it seeming out of the ordinary, she says. • Forehead. What woman doesn’t want to get a loving kiss from a man who loves her brain? “It’s a huge self-confidence builder, a soother, and a make-her-legs-weak, strong-man move,” says Walsh. It might not be the thing to do in the bedroom—you’ll want to focus on other areas at that point—but she’ll appreciate when you pull her close and plant one on her head after a long day at work. • Fingers. Fingertips have a huge concentration of nerve endings, making them sensitive to anything from little pecks to a long suck. “When you suck and lick her fingers, she gets an idea of your oral skills and pictures what it might be like when you lick and suck her more intimate areas,” says Dr. Landa. • Nipples. Sucking on her nipples releases the hormone oxytocin, called ‘the love hormone,’ because it makes people feel more bonded, says Landa. “The nipples seem to have a hotline to the genitals, and for some women, nipple stimulation will send an impulse right to her clitoris.” Don’t forget you can score points by showing some love to the rest of her breast, too. • Ears. Her ears may be quite sensitive to light licking and sucking because of all the supersensitive nerve endings there. “Most women are quite sensitive to auditory stimulation,” says Landa. “So, while you suck her ear, be sure to use the opportunity to whisper something …

​Man remanded for N16.5m fraud

A 58-year-old man, Surajudeen Tajudeen, who allegedly defrauded a businessman of N16.5m was on Thursday remanded in Ilesha Prison by an Osogbo Chief Magistrates’ Court.

The prosecutor, Mr. Kunle Adeniyi, told the court that the accused committed the offences between March and May at Okefia area of Osogbo.

Endurance Omogun-Eichie of Cormorant Road, E7 appeared at Snaresbrook Crown Court on Friday, 7 July for sentencing after pleading guilty at an earlier hearing to two counts of possessing a prohibited firearm, one count of possessing a firearm without a firearm certificate, one count of possessing an altered firearm without a firearm certificate and two counts of possessing ammunition without a firearm certificate. Officers from the Met’s Trident and Area Crime Command found the four firearms and a quantity of ammunition after they executed a search warrant at Omogun-Eichie’s home address on 10 February. Omogun-Eichie, a student who had been living away from home during the week, was arrested later the same day at London Euston railway station. Detective Constable Gareth Starr, who led the investigation, said: “As a result of this proactive operation we have taken four potentially lethal weapons off the streets of London. “Trident officers work relentlessly to arrest and prosecute anyone who possesses an illegal gun. The significant custodial sentence this defendant has received reflects the seriousness with which the courts regard this crime.” Detective Inspector Steve Meechan, of the Met’s Trident and Area Crime Command, said: “Tackling gun crime remains a key priority of the Met and Trident officers will continue to target those who choose to store such dangerous weapons.” Linda Ikeji
