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 studied at Edinburgh University so under the Scottish system, I had a smear test several years my friends studying at English universities – it made me far more aware of cervical cancer. I believe it would save lives to lower the age of screening.

    My best friend has cervical cancer so it is a very serious issue for me. Also as a public health nurse I promote the need for clients to have routine smears. Unfortunately many are under the screening age.

  57. Zoe Millward UNITED KINGDOM

    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.

  58. helen noble UNITED KINGDOM

    it should be the same in all the uk

  59. emma johnson UNITED KINGDOM

    good luck!

  60. Patience Akiri

    This is a worthy campaign. Good luck!

  61. Rebecca Owen UNITED KINGDOM

    Good luck with your campaign


    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.

  63. vinny UNITED KINGDOM

    I support this with all my heart,think 25 is way too high,good luck and hope they listen,it should be an individual choice and not chosen for you by the government xxxxx
