What is a smear test?
A smear test (also known as a cervical screening test), is used to detect certain subtypes of the Human Papilloma Virus (HPV) that can cause changes to the cervical cells, as well as check whether there are any abnormal cervical cells (dyskaryosis) which need treating before they become cancerous.
In the UK, around 3,000 cases of cervical cancer are diagnosed each year.
What are the benefits of a smear test?
Cervical screening saves lives. However huge numbers of young women in the UK are still frequently missing their smear test. It’s estimated that if all eligible women attended their screening regularly, 83% of cervical cancer cases could be prevented.*
By attending regular smear tests, abnormality can be detected early and treated before they become cancerous, preventing cervical cancer from developing.
