Screening for cervical cancer in general practice.


THE benefit of regular screening for cervical cancer is now generally accepted. In the Scandinavian Countries and British Columbia where the majority of women have regular smear tests there has been a substantial reduction in mortality from cervical cancer.' 2 Furthermore, tumours are being detected at an earlier stage of development, while mortality is now largely confined to those who have never been screened. Unfortunately similar trends have not been found here (Table I).
