The cervical screening procedure

The cervical screening test is performed in order to check the health of the cervix. This test helps detect any abnormal changes in the cervix cells and thereby prevent cervical cancer from developing. Women in the age group of 25 to 65 years are advised to undergo this test every 3-5 years or else as advised by their general practitioner.
