Abnormal Cervical Smears
If you have recently received abnormal cervical smears and would like to discuss a private treatment option, contact Regency International Clinic today. Cervical screening is a way of preventing cancer and other diseases by finding and treating abnormal cell changes. The cervix is the area that is screened, and is where a nurse or doctor takes a small sample of cells with a small brush. Abnormal cervical smears often come back when a woman experiences a change in the cells. In some cases both HPV and cancer are tested for.
Around 1 in 20 women between the ages of 25 and 65 receive abnormal cervical smears, though some results are due to problems with the test and you may need a repeat test in order to collect enough cells for the sample. Women who have an infection or who take the test on their period may need another test because the cells can’t be seen clearly enough. Our professionals are well experienced and know how to take a successful sample, making the process as comfortable for you as possible.
Here at Regency International Clinic, we provide a discreet and personal service for women who need a cervical smear. The test can be carried out in seconds and the results will be available within a few weeks. If you have had an abnormal cervical smear, we can carry out a procedure that freezes, lazers off or surgically removes the abnormal cells to prevent them from developing into cancer later on in life.
If you find that your abnormal cervical smear has come back with cancerous cells, we will need to refer you onto an oncologist. In order to avoid this, we recommend having a smear test every 3 to 5 years.
