Watched the piece on Daybreak this morning about how more women are missing their smear tests and it featured someone who was late with her test and was diagnosed with CC. Luckily it wasn't advanced and she didnt have to have a full hysterectomy.
I'm in full support of anything on tv or in the press to promote the importance of going for smear tests on time but can it be recognised that many of us do go on time and never miss a test but still get diagnosed with CC - as in my case!
Unfortunately people think (I've already had 1 comment!) that because I was diagnosed with CC and had a Radical Hysterectomy then I must have ignored my request to go for my test - not true!!
I'm just thankful that I never missed a test otherwise it could have developed a lot further than what it was.
It would just be good for it to be acknowledged that not all of us with CC have missed/ignored their tests.
