In this section you can find out about experiences of cervical screening by seeing and hearing people share their personal stories on film. Researchers travelled all around the UK to talk to 37 women in their own homes. Find out what people said about issues such as deciding to attend screening, getting results and treatment for abnormal cells. We hope you find the information helpful and reassuring.
