How To Overcome 'Smear Fear'

Don't let anything stand in the way of your smear test.

Every year, 3,100 women are diagnosed with cervical cancer in the UK yet the disease is highly preventable.

The screening program is key to prevention as it helps identify women with pre-cancerous changes in her cervix. However, one in four women are still skipping their screening appointments. But, why?

Research by GynaeHealth UK found that one in three women find it difficult to get a GP appointment that suits them, while one in five women find smear testing uncomfortable, so don't attend. With this in mind, consultant gynaecologist Julian Brady explains how to overcome anxiety around cervical screening.
