This month is a Cervical Cancer campaign raising awareness about the importance of early detection of Cervical cancer and encouraging women to have a test.
You might know about smear tests. They can stop cervical cancer from ever developing. You’re invited regularly from ages 25 to 64.
You might find going for smear tests hard (especially at the moment). So make sure you know the symptoms:
Vaginal bleeding that is unusual for you
Changes to vaginal discharge
Pain or discomfort during sex
Pain in your lower back or pelvis
The earlier cervical cancer is found, the easier it is to treat.
