Why Cervical Screening is necessary?

Klarity’s cancer screening services are clinically governed by age restrictions, if you are not within the age range for a service you will not be able to sign up to that service. This is because clinical research does not support the benefits of screening people outside our specified age eligibilities. Regardless of age, if you have symptoms then you should always seek medical advice from your Physician.

Why should I get checked for cervical cancer?

According to the American Cancer Society, cervical cancer was once one of the most common causes of cancer death for American women. However, the widespread use of the Pap test for screening has led to a significant decrease in cervical cancer incidence and mortality rates over the past few decades.

In 2021, it was estimated that there would be approximately 14,480 new cases of invasive cervical cancer diagnosed among women in the United States, with about 4,290 deaths resulting from the disease.

The overall risk of a woman developing cervical cancer in her lifetime is about 1 in 166 (or 0.6%). However, the risk varies based on factors such as age, sexual history, smoking, and human papillomavirus (HPV) infection. The majority of cervical cancer cases are caused by persistent infections with certain high-risk types of HPV.


The cervical cancer screening test?

You will receive a sterile collection kit, which is sent to your home, containing easy to follow step-by-step instructions. Complete the at-home test by following the simple instructions provided in the test kit. Return your sample to the laboratory and you can expect your results within five days of the laboratory receiving your sample. Your results will be available in your Klarity member’s page. One of our clinical team will contact you to discuss your results and assist with any questions you may have.

How does it work?

CervicalScreen is a reliable, easy to use at-home cervical cancer screening kit that detects the Human papillomavirus (HPV), the virus that causes cervical cancer. For 90% of women, using CervicalScreen means you may never need to have a smear test again. CervicalScreen tests for the 13 high-risk sub-types of HPV, identifying women potentially at a high risk of cervical cancer. The NHS does not currently report on HPV sub-types.
