A Smear Test Could Save your Life!

Going for screening every time you’re invited is the best thing you can to prevent cervical cancer:

  • Cervical screening is a quick test to check the cervix (neck of the womb) for the Human Papilloma Virus (HPV), the main cause of cervical cancer.
  •  In Scotland, cervical screening is routinely offered to anyone with a cervix between the ages of 25 and 64 every 5 years.
  • Cervical screening aims to identify whether you are at higher risk of developing cervical cell changes or cervical cancer. This means you can get any care or treatment you need early.
