LONDON, ENGLAND – The organization Eve Appeal discovered that half of English women between the ages of 26 and 35 could not correctly identify certain body parts on a picture of the female reproductive system.

They think it’s because nearly 40 percent of those women used nicknames, like “lady parts” or “women’s bits” when talking with their doctors.

What makes this even more disturbing is that these women also did not know the signs of gynecological cancer, putting them at a high risk for contracting one of the diseases.

September is Gynecological Cancer Awareness Month, a good time for women to be more aware of what’s happening to certain parts of their bodies and, for some, to learn where those body parts are located.

If you can’t do it on your own, maybe you can find someone to lend you a hand.
