Every day in the UK, eight women are diagnosed with cervical cancer and three women lose their lives to the disease. But the good news is that cervical cancer is preventable.
Cervical screening, or the smear test as it’s more commonly known, detects pre-cancerous cells that could lead to cervical cancer.
However, according to a new report by Jo’s Cervical Cancer Trust, the number of young women diagnosed with cervical cancer has risen by up to five per cent in just one year.
According to the charity, this increase is down to the number of young women not attending cervical screenings.
This is just one of the reasons why we’re supporting #SmearForSmear, the new social media awareness campaign by Jo’s Cervical Cancer Trust.
The charity is asking people to take a lipstick smear selfie and nominate their friends to do the same in order to raise awareness of the importance of early cervical cancer detection.
As you can see from our pictures, our staff at YourGP are certainly doing their bit.
But that’s not all we’re doing to help prevent and raise awareness of cervical cancer.
At YourGP, cervical screenings are part of the Well Woman check, which also includes breast examination, vaginal and pelvic examination, and menopausal support.
Having your cervical screening should only take a matter of minutes, with your dignity and any concerns being respected at all times.
Importantly, the Well Woman check not only offers peace of mind, it can also catch any problems before they develop allowing you to take the necessary preventative steps.
As well as providing cervical screening as part of the Well Woman check, we also offer the GARDASIL® Human Papillomavirus Vaccine, which is proven protection against the human papillomavirus (HPV) – the virus that causes cervical cancer.
Vaccination is vital, as over 80% of sexually active women will become infected with the virus in their lifetime.
Unlike cervical screenings, GARDASIL® is suitable for females (and males) from nine to 26-years-old, although it is not suitable for women who are pregnant.
To enquire about cervical screening or the GARDASIL® vaccination, call our reception team on 0131 225 5656 or email us at email@example.com.
To be able to attend a clinic where I am very obviously accepted by everyone there is a great start. To follow it with an hour with Dr Myskow listening, guiding and supporting me and my loved ones as I began to live my life for real as a Transman has made me feel less afraid or isolated
