A smear test is a simple examination to check the health of a woman’s cervix. If abnormal cells are found, in many cases they will go back to normal on their own, but sometimes they continue to develop abnormally. If left untreated, these cells may eventually develop into cancer. However, it usually takes more than ten years for this to happen, and cervical cancer can easily be prevented if abnormal changes are found and treated early.
If you have not had a smear test in the past 3 years and are sexually active, please do call us for an appointment on 0207 3233 830.
