Health and HIV information

    Cervical Cancer Screening

    Cervical Cancer Screening

    The best way to reduce our risk around cervical cancer is to get a Cervical Screening Test.



    It is recommended that everyone with a cervix, regardless of your gender identity or sexuality, aged 25 to 74 who have ever been sexually active, get a Cervical Screening Test, once every five years. 



    Join Jessie & Rachel this week as they chat about Cervical Cancer Screening with Kate Broun from Cancer Council Victoria and Son Vivienne from Thorne Harbour Health. They unpack some of the misconceptions around cervical cancer screening, how things have changed from the pap test and what's actually involved during a screening appointment.



    For more information, read up about Cervical Cancer Screening and check out the Public Cervix Announcement campaign.
