Abnormal Smear Test

At Grosvenor Gardens Healthcare, located in the prestigious areas of Belgravia and Dulwich, London, we specialise in the evaluation and management of abnormal smear test results. Our dedicated team provides expert care, employing advanced diagnostic techniques to ensure accurate follow-up and treatment planning.

Understanding Abnormal Smear Tests

A smear test, also known as a cervical screening test, is designed to detect abnormal cells on the cervix that could potentially develop into cancer if left untreated. An abnormal result does not mean you have cancer; it indicates that abnormal cells were found, and further investigation is needed to determine the cause and appropriate management.

Benefits of Expert Management of Abnormal Smear Tests

  • Early Detection: Effective management and follow-up on abnormal results can detect precancerous changes or early-stage cancers, which are usually more treatable.
  • Tailored Treatment Plans: Depending on the type and extent of the abnormal cells, treatment can range from simple monitoring to more proactive interventions.
  • Peace of Mind: Understanding your results and having a clear plan for follow-up care reduces anxiety and provides reassurance about your health.
