When Last Did You Have A Smear Test?

Cervical cancer rates in under 35s soar 60% as the number having smear tests falls to an all-time low
                In the last 10 years the number of 25 to 29-year-old women diagnosed with cervical cancer has soared by 59.2% - 4.9% in the last year
                But last year one million women failed to turn up for their smear tests
                One in five women missed screening with uptake falling below 78% for first time in the last 20 years - among women aged 25 to 29 uptake fell to 66.3%
                It is the most common form of cancer among those aged under 35
