Cervical Cancer

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.
Cervical Cancer

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.
