Negative tests are no reason to stop screening earlier 
[Pap Smear after 65 years].
TLDR
The French recommendations (in favor of stopping cervical cancer screening by cervico-uterine smear from 65 years of age) are logical in the context of organized screening; however, it is not yet generalized in France, and patients who could benefit from systematic FCU after age 65 could be those who request it.

Objective To determine the pattern of abnormal cervical cytology in women aged 50 to 60 years and to determine whether the development of cervical neoplasia in this age group is confined to women whoExpand
Benefit of cervical screening at different ages: evidence from the UK audit of screening histories
TLDR
In women aged 20–39 years, even annual screening is not as effective as 3-yearly screening in older women, and 3 years after screening cancer rates return to those in unscreened women, which calls into question the policy of having a uniform screening interval from age 20 to 64 years and stresses the value of screening in middle-aged women.

TLDR
All women over 50 with an adequate history of negative results on smear testing every three years may be safely discharged from further screening if these findings are confirmed in other populations. Expand

Age‐restricted cervical screening: HPV testing at age 50 identifies a high risk group for cervical disease
TLDR
It is found that HPV 16 status was the only independently significant risk factor for abnormal cytology after age 50 with an odds ratio of 10.26, and a policy of early withdrawal from screening at age 50 on the basis of HPV testing would produce net cost savings. Expand

TLDR
Nonadherence to screening intervals was the major reason for cervical cancer morbidity and the screening program was equally effective for women of all ages and was also effective against non-squamous cancers. Expand

Incidence of cervical cancer after several negative smear results by age 50: prospective observational study
TLDR
The risk for cervical cancer after several negative smear results by age 50 is similar to the risk at younger ages, and age is not a good discriminative factor for early cessation of cervical cancer screening. Expand
Risk of cervical and other cancers after treatment of cervical intraepithelial neoplasia: retrospective cohort study
TLDR
The risk of cervical cancer in the first 20 years after treatment for cervical intraepithelial neoplasia is higher than in the average population and the risk of smoking related cancers is also increased. Expand
Long term risk of invasive cancer after treatment for cervical intraepithelial neoplasia grade 3: population based cohort study
TLDR
Women previously treated for cervical intraepithelial neoplasia grade 3 are at an increased risk of developing invasive cervical cancer and vaginal cancer and this risk has increased since the 1960s and is accentuated in women aged more than 50. Expand
