Fatigue alerted mum to cervical cancer

20 January 2014 Last updated at 10:56 GMT

A woman diagnosed with cervical cancer after suffering severe fatigue has urged other women not to miss their tests as research shows fears are putting women off having them.

The research is part of a campaign by Jo's Cervical Cancer Trust as part of Cervical Cancer Prevention Week.

Debbie Hall-Quinlan from Llanelli was diagnosed with cervical cancer in September 2012 when she was 31.

She told BBC Radio Wales' Felicity Evans the first indication something was wrong was when she started to become severely fatigued, prompting her to seek medical advice.
