Screening for cervical cancer

Every five years, we invite all women aged 25-65 living in Helsinki to cervical cancer screenings.

The purpose of cervical cancer screening is to identify the early stage of possible cervical cancer and treat it as early as possible. This prevents the actual cancer from developing.

For people aged 30 years and older, the screening is based on an HPV test. For people under the age of 30, the screening is based on a Pap smear test.

An invitation to the screening will be sent by post to your home address. The test is free of charge.

The screening is carried out by the HUS Diagnostic Centre.
