Cervical Cancer Screening: CHANGE the screening age in England from 25 years old to 20! sign now

Cervical screening is massively important as it can STOP cervical cancer from developing. It is one of the few cancers that is preventable because pre cancerous cell changes can be picked up before they have a chance to develop into cancer. The age that screening starts and finishes varies between the different countries of the UK. If you are between the ages of 25 and 60 in the UK, you will be contacted every 3 to 5 years and asked to go for a cervical screening test. The exact age groups for screening vary between the different countries of the United Kingdom. Currently in SCOTLAND and WALES, women from the age of 20 are screened. Yet in ENGLAND the screening age starts at 25! According to Cancer Research UK "The screening programme in England now starts at 25 because cervical cancer is very rare before this age." It is believed to be rare...but not an IMPOSSIBILITY! Recently, I have heard of more and more cases of women UNDER the age of 25 to have developed cervical cancer. The point of this petition is to ask the government to change the starting age from 25 back to 20. Please could you support myself, your friends, your daughters, sisters, cousins, and nieces. This change could potentially SAVE lives!!
Thank you for your time, and for your support!
