Dionne Newman: Cervical cancer, no longer the silent killer – but only if you are straight
Writer and student Dionne Newman says LGBT+ women have been dangerously disregarded on serious health issues and it must stop
IT is fantastic news that cervical and ovarian cancers are no longer referred to as "silent killers". This is due to the predictions that come from regular cervical screening tests, alerting women before any major symptoms occur.
This means all women are now much safer and should be able to detect any possible irregularities before they become an issue, right?
Well, no. It doesn’t.

I REMEMBER watching Ben Elton on the telly when I was a kid, talking about how if men had periods they’d be boasting about who bled the most. He was probably right.
