Cervical Cancer Prevention Week is a European wide initiative lead by   European Cervical Cancer Association (ECCA).

Almost 3,000 women a year are diagnosed with cervical cancer yet there are steps women can take to prevent it from affecting them. Despite this in the UK 20% of women do not take up their invitation for cervical screening.

  • post-menopausal bleeding
  • unusual discharge
