Cervical Screening

Cervical Screening

Cervical Screening is the procedure to determine and eliminate the abnormal tissues in the cervix area before cervical cancer develops. Cervical Screening is also a way to examine the health of your cervix. It is not a treatment for cancer but a way to prevent cancer.
Cervical Cancer is the most common cancer in women. It is also believed to be the fourth most fatal cancer. In cervical cancer, the cell of the cervix starts multiplying uncontrollably and in 99% of the cases, cervical cancer is caused by Human Papillomavirus (HPV), a virus that is commonly found in the mouth, throat, and genital area. However, to eradicate this deadly disease, cervical screening is advised.
What is the Procedure of Cervical Screening?
The procedure of Cervical Screening is simple and result oriented. The procedure includes the following:

  • During the appointment, the doctor will take a small sample of cells taken from your cervix
  • The sample will be examined for certain types of Papillomaviruses that are responsible to cause changes to the cells of the cervix
  • If any kind of abnormal cells are not found in the result, then you will not need any further treatment
  • If HPV cells are found in your result from the sample, your sample will be checked for changes it might have caused in your cervix and these can be treated before they turn into cancer cells
  • You will get your result in a week and your doctor will guide you regarding the further process if needed
  • What are the advantages of Cervical Screening?
    Cervical Screening reduces the risk of getting cervical cancer as the screening detects the growth of abnormal cells in your cervix before they start developing into dangerous cancer cells. Through the process of cervical screening, the doctor can remove the parts of the cervix that contain the cells before developing into cancer cells. Moreover, cervical screening can save millions of lives hence preventing women from developing this cancer.
