Cervical screening awareness: Going for a smear test could mean early cancer detection

Cervical screening looks for precancers, cell changes on the cervix that might become cervical cancer if it is not treated appropriately.

It is available to women and people with a cervix aged 25 to 64 in England.

But almost one in three across the UK don’t take up their cervical screening also known as a smear test invitation, according to statistics from charity Jo’s Cervical Cancer Trust.
