Embarrassment makes women avoid smear tests, charity says
"Young women are avoiding getting smear tests because they are embarrassed by the look and smell of their pubic areas, a survey suggests.
The charity Jo's Cervical Cancer Trust surveyed 2,017 British women.
A third said embarrassment caused them to delay getting a smear test, which can prevent 75% of cervical cancers.The charity said cervical cancer is the most common cancer in women under 35 yet almost two-thirds of those surveyed weren't aware they're most at risk.
A total of 220,000 British women are diagnosed with cervical abnormalities each year."
