Mothers Influence Daughters’ Screening Decisions

Mothers Influence Daughters’ Screening Decisions

The European Journal of Cancer published study has found that cervical cancer screening decisions of mothers influence the vaccination decisions of their daughter greatly.

Recently, a group of researchers from the University of Manchester has carried out research in which they have found that girls get themselves tested if their mothers have got tested in last five years. Not only this, it has also been found that if mothers have got abnormal test reports, their daughters made sure that they are vaccinated against cervical cancer.

It was in 2008 that cervical cancer vaccine was introduced. The vaccine is meant to provide immunity against the sexually transmitted disease.

The study researchers said that it is the first time when link between cervical cancer records and HPV vaccination records have been found."It shows there is a link within families and that targeting both mothers and daughters may have an influence on uptake of prevention programmes", said the study researchers.

One more thing that got revealed through the study is that the women, who themselves do not get screened for cervical cancer, are less likely to make their daughters to go through the screening process. Therefore, it has been found that mothers do influence daughters' decisions.
