Lower the age of cervical screening from 25 to 20

1,384 Signatures | Petition Ended

Created September 21, 2010 by Hannah


This is a petition to lower the age of cervical screening from 25 to 20 years of age.

This subject is very close to my heart as last year I was diagnosed with cervical cancer at age 20, thankfully after a radical hysterectomy I have been given the all clear. Unfortunately this is not always the case. Too many cases of this silent killer go undetected and destroy the lives of so many.

Please support our campaign and sign this petition, every signature counts.

When this petition is complete me and my sister will cycle it to Downing Street and raise money for Cancer Research

    I can’t understand whyteh age for a smear was put up to 25. Three of my friends have had abnormal cells removed from their cervix when they were below 25. Luckily this was before the age for a smear was increased to 25. They could have developed cervical cancer if a smear had not picked up the abnormal cells.

    Had my 1st smear at 17, had abnormal cells then, I think I’d had two sets of treatnent by 25, age should never be an issue.
