A self-administered test for cervical cancer could save thousands of lives, not only in areas where access to screenings is limited, but also in wealthier nations where women can't afford or refuse to get screened in clinics, according to a study published in The Lancet. In a trial of 20,000 volunteers in Mexico, more than four times as many cases of cervical cancer and more than three times as many cases of cervical intraepithelial neoplasia were detected in the group using the DIY test compared with the group undergoing in-clinic smear tests.
