Threat of Cervical Cancer Unknown to Most Women

Only 5% of Irish women have kn,owledge of the cervical cancer virus, in spite of the fact four out of five women will be affected by it at some point// in their lives, it was revealed today.

By ensuring that women are educated about this disease and the virus that causes it, and that they have access to preventive technologies, regardless of socio-economic status, we can ensure that no more women die of this preventable disease.”

While the risk of cervical cancer exists for all sexually active women, up to four out of five women will catch HPV at some point in their lives. While most infections clear naturally, some may persist and lead to cancer.

GlaxoSmithKline, the seminar sponsors, found that less than three quarters of Irish women aged 18 to 55 had undergone at least one smear test in their lifetime.

Test rates were low among young women aged 18-24 but compliance among women aged 35-44 ran at more than 90%. Just over a quarter of Irish women 27.25% have never had a
