A cervical screening test checks the health of your cervix. Screening first looks to see if you have any of the high-risk types of human papillomavirus (HPV) that cause cervical cancer. If HPV is found, your same test sample will be checked to see if you have any abnormal (pre-cancerous) cells in your cervix. This is a new way of screening. It is called HPV cervical screening. It was introduced in Ireland in March 2020.
