Cervical Screen Test

Cervical screening is a method of preventing cervical cancer by detecting the HPV virus in the cervix (lower part of the womb). Cervical screening is not a test for cancer, but it is a test to check the health of the cervix.

Most women's test results show that everything is normal. But for one in 20 women, the test will show some changes in the cells of the cervix. Most of these changes will not lead to cervical cancer and the cells will go back to normal on their own.

In some cases, the abnormal cells need to be treated to prevent them becoming a problem later. 

Patients must not book unless they have received a letter from the NHS and must be 12 weeks after any vaginal procedure.
