Cervical Screening

‘Cervical screening saves lives’

Cervical cancer is the most common cancer in women under the age of 35, but cervical screening (often called a smear test) can prevent cervical cancer from developing, or pick it up at an early stage.

Women aged 25 to 49 are invited for screening every three years. Women aged 50 to 64 are invited every five years.

If and when you are due for screening, Cervical Screening Wales will send you more information about the test, including the benefits and risks.
