The survey of more than 2,000 women by Jo's Cervical Cancer Trust found nearly 40% said they would be anxious about what people thought of them if they had HPV. So if you have a long term partner and find out you have HPV, it does not mean they have been unfaithful.

Cervical cancer is the most common cancer in women aged 35 and under, with some having no symptoms. This is an annual campaign to raise awareness on cervical cancer causes, prevention, diagnosis, treatment and survivorship as well as to support those affected by cervical cancer.

Researchers found that only 15 per cent of those questioned realised HPV was commonplace.

Some eight in 10 women will have a form of the HPV infection in their lifetime, but what exactly does that mean and should you be anxious if does get picked up in your smear test results?

The experience for the woman will be identical, as they both use a smear test, but it is much more accurate because the HPV part is the more sensitive test.

HPV is a very common infection, and around eight out of 10 people become infected with the virus at some point in their lives.

"Testing for the virus is a better way to identify people who may have changes in their cervix, which, if left untreated, could develop into cervical cancer".

The research - which assessed a pilot of the new test involving 580,000 women - also found the number of women developing cervical cancer could be cut by a fifth thanks to the new screening regime.

Shapers Tanning Salon, Milnrow Road, is offering a free bikini wax until the end of March for every woman who books in for their cervical screening, whilst The Hideout Salon and Academy, Albert Royds Street, is offering a free manicure with gel polish for those who have attended (compliment slip confirming test required). A Pap smear and HPV test are simple and important screening exams that can detect these abnormal changes in the cervix. "In most cases, if you or any partners you have get high-risk HPV your bodies will be able to clear the infection, just like with low risk infections".

The research was presented at Cancer Research UK's Early Diagnosis Conference in Birmingham. "With the screening programme moving to testing for HPV first, which is to be celebrated, we must normalise the virus to ensure people fully understand what it means to have it".

A new cervical test is so sensitive that the gap between appointments could be extended to five years for all women, according to research published last night.

Scotland is set to follow next year, while HPV screening has already been introduced in Wales.

"Detecting and removing abnormal cervical cells can prevent cervical cancer".

Claire Bolton was 38 when she was diagnosed with cervical cancer.

Today, 2 in 4 people survive their cancer for at least 10 years.

Together with its partners and supporters, Cancer Research UK's vision is to bring forward the day when all cancers are cured.
