Cervical cancer is the most common form of cancer in women under 35 with two women in the UK per day dying from the disease. Regular cervical screening appointments can prevent up to 75% of instances of cervical cancer, saving 5000 lives per year. Despite this, many women are reluctant to have this test done with a quarter of women not responding to their screening invitation. Cervical Screening Awareness Week is organised by the charity Jo’s trust, a charity dedicated to women affected by cervical cancer or abnormalities.

doesn’t bother me! Some women it does.


Yeah its quite alarming the number of women who not only don’t like to go but don’t actually go for screening at all.

Hopefully this awarenessweek will help increase numbers who go for screening

My wife would not be here today if she never went for a test back in 1996, the surgeon said it had spread so much they needed to take all her woman bits out, 24 years later she's still in excellent health but obviously no children since then

Thanks I do hope this gets seen by plenty of people and people share the information and get screened.

I have been seen different posts on social media this week.

I work in oncology and know screening really can save lives.

That’s understandable but I’m glad there is more conversation about it and people are becoming more aware
You can learn things about yourself you didn't know - I have a cervix that leans to the left (iirc), turns out my mum's does too (she told me when I mentioned it!).

I have a few stories about smears I've had but TMI for here. But a moment's discomfort (and that's all it is really) is always worth it.

Lol haha good discussion for a Wednesday night
My wife and my mum both have had abnormal cells and both had to have comb biopsies. Could have led to cervical cancer etc so it's a life saver.
