English Women Avoid Smear Test for Cervical Cancer

There is a steady drop of women in the late twenties group who take the preventive test for cervical cancer viz. the pap smear test. //The percentage has come down to 69.4 in 2005-06 from 80% in 1995. A parallel trend was observed in women in mid thirties group too.

Women are said to avoid this test due to the painful and invasive procedures of the same. But according to the medical fraternity, the young women population who are avoiding this test are the ones who are at a greater risk.

Cervical cancer is caused by Human papilloma virus which usually strikes women in their late thirties. Research in 13 European countries indicated that wherever there was screening, there is indeed a drop of cervical cancer cases. Julietta Patnaik, director of the NHS Screening Programme said that they are examining the reasons about the falling rate in women taking these tests.
