Welcome to the Screening Saves Lives website!

We’re here to tell you about the five national health screening programmes – AAA, bowel, breast, cervical, and NHS Health Checks.

Just got your screening letter and have questions? We know that understanding more about screening makes people feel better about going. Here you can find out what your screening is looking for, and what it involves.

Not sure if you can get screened? You can find out who’s eligible, and what to do if you haven’t been contacted or missed your appointment.

We know that lots of people don’t go for their screening when they’re invited. They might be too busy, embarrassed, or scared it’ll hurt. But research shows that screening can, and does, save people’s lives. It can detect a problem early, before you have any symptoms. And finding out about a problem early can mean that treatment is more effective.

Reduce your Risk

We want people to get to know their body and start looking out for the signs and symptoms, know what to look for, and get support and help early if they notice any changes. Everyone knows someone who has been affected by cancer; it affects 1 in 2 people at some point in their lives. Through the Reduce Your Risk campaign, we want to spread the message that there are things which can be done to prevent cancer. We know you can’t control everything, but a lot of people are surprised by how much our lifestyle choices impact on our risk of developing cancer and long-term conditions. The campaign aims to provide you with support and information about how to make lifestyle changes to protect you and your family.

Having safer sex can reduce your risk of developing Cervical Cancer.

Most cases of cervical cancer are linked to an infection with certain types of human papilloma virus (HPV). HPV can be spread through unprotected sex, so using a condom can reduce your risk of developing the infection.

However, the virus is not just passed on through penetrative sex: it can be transmitted during any type of sexual contact. This includes any skin-to-skin contact between genitals; oral, vaginal or anal sex; and using sex toys.

Your risk of developing an HPV infection increases the earlier you start having regular sex and the more sexual partners you have, although women who have only had 1 sexual partner can also develop it.
