Cervical Screening is one of the best ways to protect yourself from cervical cancer. Cervical screening checks the health of your cervix. It’s not a test for cancer, it’s a test to help prevent cancer.
Cervical Screening may check for:
abnormal cell changes in your cervix – left untreated, this could turn into cancer
human papillomavirus (HPV) – some types of HPV can lead to cell changes in your cervix and cancer

Bowel cancer screening involves having tests to check if you have or are at risk of bowel cancer.
Bowel cancer is a common type of cancer in both men and women. About 1 in 20 people will get it during their lifetime.
Screening can help detect bowel cancer at an early stage, when it’s easier to treat. It can also be used to help check for and remove small growths in the bowel called polyps, which can turn into cancer over time.
