This week is Cervical Cancer Awareness Week and our Board of Trustee Member & Oncology Nurse Lizzy Kilkenny shares some useful information and answers the common questions below.

What is Cervical Screening?
Cervical Screening tests women for changes in the cells of the cervix. Its aim is to detect early cell changes, this is the really important point as cervical cancer takes 7-12 years to develop in most cases.
It’s important to note that it is not a test for Cancer. It’s a test to check for abnormalities in the cells of the cervix which may lead to Cancer.
