Hi The results of my last smear test in April 2015 showed low grade dyskaryosis with no evidence of HPV infection as I am 54 my next screening is not due until 2020. My sister was diagnosed with advanced cervical cancer after waiting a year for a repeat test so I am understandably worried to have to wait 5 years for another screening. My GP said he is unable to request an earlier test but if I am worried he can send me for an invasive test! I am reluctant to take this path as I feel I just need another smear to check if there are any further changes. Is he right?
