Cervical Cancer Awareness Month!

Cervical Cancer Awareness month is an opportunity to raise awareness on the risks of cervical cancer. Cervical cancer is a type of cancer that develops in the cervix, which is the lower part of the uterus that connects to the vagina. It is caused by the human papillomavirus (HPV) and is one of the most preventable types of cancer.

Regular cervical screening is the best way to identify abnormal changes in the cells of the cervix at any early stage. Women aged 25 to 49 are invited for screening every 3 years. Women aged 50 to 64 are invited every 5 years. For women who are 65 or over, only those who have not been screened since they were 50, have had recent abnormal tests or have never been screened before are still eligible for screening.

Make sure your GP surgery has your up to date contact details so you continue getting screening invitations. It’s important to attend your cervical screening tests!
