Cervical screening checks the health of your cervix. It is also known as a smear test. It is a test to prevent cancer. During the test a small sample of cells will be taken with a brush. All women with a cervix will be called for screening tests between age 25-64. An abnormal result does not mean that you have cancer. Abnormal tests will be followed up with more testing to prevent any changes becoming cancerous.
