How does cervical screening benefit you?
The screening is carried out with a view to detecting any abnormal cell growth in the cervix. When left untreated these cells could develop into cervical cancer. As a London cervical screening clinic, Broadgate GP is able to offer a comprehensive service.
We not only screen you for danger signs, but we can also provide you with advice on anything that might be discovered as part of the cervical cancer screening. If abnormal cells are detected at a high level during the cervical smear then we are also able to offer treatment.
Cervical smear screening is important for all women to have carried out. Many women have questions about cervical screening and that’s why we have created a guide on cervical screens. Feel free to have a read or get in touch with Broadgate GP if you have any more questions.
How common are abnormal cervical smear test results?
For every 100 women that have cervical screening carried out about six will display an abnormal result. It’s very rare for women to be diagnosed with cancer from a cervical screening test. Less than 1 in 1000 smear tests show a result of invasive cancer. It’s important to remember that screening is designed to detect abnormal cells in the cervix not cancer.
