Cervical Screening in Malaysia

Cervical screening, or smear test, is a method of detecting abnormal (pre-cancerous) cells in the cervix to prevent cervical cancer. The cervix is the entrance to the womb from the vagina. Cervical screening is recommended every three years for women aged 21 to 49 and every five years for women aged 50 to 64 or more frequently if smear results indicate abnormal changes.

Cervical screening is not a test for cancer; it is a test to check the health of the cells of the cervix. Most women’s test results show that everything is normal, but for 1 in 20 women the test will show some abnormal changes in the cells of the cervix.

Most of these changes will not lead to cervical cancer and the cells may go back to normal on their own. However, in some cases, the abnormal cells need to be treated to prevent them becoming cancerous.

Who needs the cervical screening test?

You should have the test if:

  • you are aged 21 to 64 years old
  • you have a cervix
  • you have ever been sexually active

What to expect from your cervical screening test

Your test will be performed by a doctor. While you lie on your back with your knees bent, the doctor or inserts an instrument called a speculum into your vagina so they can see the cervix. Then they use a brush to take a sample of cells from the cervix.

The sample is put into a tube that contains liquid and sent to a laboratory to be analyzed. Your doctor will talk to you about the results, which could indicate:

  • You don’t have an HPV infection. You don’t need another cervical screening test for another 5 years.
  • You have an HPV infection. Your body will probably get rid of the HPV by itself. But you will need another cervical screening test in 12 months. If the second test is clear, you won’t need another test for 5 years. If you still have the HPV infection after 12 months, you may need to see a specialist.
