  • Cervical Cancer Prevention Week

    Created: 21/01/2022

    To mark Cervical Cancer Prevention Week (17 – 23 January 2022), healthcare professionals in Fife are reinforcing that the cervical screening test now offered is much more effective than it has been in the past.

    The test provides screening for HPV, which is the main cause of cervical cancer, to help ensure any cell changes are identified and treated earlier. Those who are found to have HPV will be invited for screening every year, so any cell changes can be closely monitored, and referred for further investigation and treatment if needed. Those whose test sample shows no signs of HPV will be invited for their screening appointment in five years, as evidence shows the chance of developing cervical cancer during this time is very low. More information can be found here.
