Cervical Screening

Cervical cancer is one of few cancers that can be largely prevented through regular cervical screening. The test used in the screening program is called a Cervical Screening Test.

A Cervical Screening Test is a simple test to check the health of your cervix. It feels the same as having a Pap Test, but now the test looks for the presence of the human papilloma virus (HPV) which is the virus that we now know causes over 99% of cervical cancers.

If you're aged between 25-74 and have ever had sex then you need to have regular cervical screening. This is important even if you are not currently sexually active, or if you have had the human papilloma virus (HPV) vaccine because the vaccine does not prevent all cervical cancers.

Having regular cervical screening could save your life.

If you are due for your regular cervical screening call Sexual Health and Family Planning ACT to book a Cervical Screening Test today.
