Cervical Cancer Screening

WHY SCREEN FOR CERVICAL CANCER

Cervical cancer is the 12th most common cancer in Scottish women accounting for 2.1% of female cancer cases.

Cervical screening saves around 5000 lives every year and prevents 8 out of 10 cervical cancers from developing.

CERVICAL SCREENING PROGRAMME

Cervical screening to detect and treat abnormal changes in a woman's cervix (the neck of the womb) which, if left untreated, may develop into invasive cervical cancer.

The Scottish Cervical Screening Programme has been in place since 1989.  All eligible women in Scotland between the ages of 25 and 49 are invited for cervical screening every three years and women aged between 50 and 64 are invited every five years.  These tests are then processed in laboratories throughout Scotland and results are issued to the women's GP.  Women with non negative results are referred for further investigation and treatment where necessary.
