Could Cervical Cancer be prevented by earlier HPV Tests?

Clinical Human Papillomavirus Detection Forecasts Cervical Cancer Risk in Women Over 18 Years of Follow-Up

Cervical Cancer could be prevented by earlier HPV Tests, Study suggests
HPV tests could prevent cervical cancer cases

Carrying out a virus test before traditional cervical screening could prevent around 600 cases of cancer a year in England, research suggests. Scientists found that more than 40% of 8,750 women with cervical cancer had received a negative screening test result within six years of their diagnosis. They then predicted how many more cases of cervical cancer would have been avoided if human papilloma virus (HPV) testing had been used ahead of screening for abnormal cells.
