NASSAU, BAHAMAS – One doctor is encouraging women to take charge of their health on International Women’s Day, sharing a few measures every woman should take to ensure a clean bill of health.



Dr. Andria Suarez-Mora is an obstetrician-gynecologist at Cleveland Clinic in Weston, Florida. She’s not Bahamian, but sees a number of Bahamian patients. Unfortunately, she says by the time they appear in her practice, they have exhausted other options.

Women may be reluctant to speak up about symptoms or even get regular checkups. But Dr. Suarez-Mora says being empowered means taking care of yourself.

Breast cancer is one of the most common types of cancer in The Bahamas but the gynecologist says uterine and cervical cancer symptoms should not be overlooked or pushed to the back burner.
