Cervical Cancer Misdiagnosis Dublin

Cervical Cancer is diagnosed in over 300 woman in Ireland each year. Dublin has the highest rate of cervical cancer in Ireland.

Cervical cancer is a cancer of the cells of the cervix (neck of the womb). Cervical cells change slowly and take many years to develop into cancer cells. This makes this cancer a preventable disease.

Who is at risk of Cervical Cancer?

The risk of cervical cancer can be reduced by:

  • regular smear tests
  • discussing any concerns or symptoms such as irregular vaginal bleeding, spotting or discharge with a doctor
