 Home Kits Encourage Women to Spot Early Signs of Cervical Cancer

Recent research has found that women who are too busy to attend smear tests actually respond positively to using home kits to spot early signs of cervical cancer.

Even those who had ignored earlier notification reminders were prompted to take a smear appointment with their GP after they received home kits to check the early signs of cervical cancer.

Study author Dr Anne Szarewski said: "Women who don't go for cervical screening face a higher risk of cervical cancer, so it's important to encourage these women to take part. Home testing for HPV is as accurate as samples taken by doctors and can help address some of the reasons, like finding time or being embarrassed, that women often give as reasons for not attending screening."
