The comeback you weren’t looking forward to
Did you know that syphilis is on the increase? The number of people in the UK diagnosed with syphilis has more than doubled since 2012.
Many of us haven't heard about syphilis, or know little about it. We think of it as something that was common in the 1970s and has gone away. But syphilis is back – and it's back in a big way!!!
If it’s left untreated, syphilis can have serious implications on our health. In its later stages, it can cause serious and potentially life-threatening problems.
Testing for syphilis is free and easy in the UK, but many people with syphilis don't know they have it. Treating syphilis means that it can't be passed on to sexual partners.
