Leaflet on breast and cervical cancer prevention
Do women who love women have a greater risk of developing breast or cervical cancer?
Being lesbian or bisexual does not have a direct influence on the frequency of breast cancer or cervical cancer. However, there are certain risk factors that are unique to women who love women
– which explains the importance of informing them of the risks.
Because the problem is particularly unrecognized by the public most concerned
, ILGA has decided to disseminate a leaflet in English and Spanish on breast and cervical cancer prevention.
The French and Dutch versions were initially coordinated by ILGA with the Belgian Foundation against Cancer and with the help of Belgian lesbian groups.
