Women ages 23–49 are invited every third year for an examination for dysplasia, or abnormal cells, of the cervix. Women ages 50–64 are invited every fifth year.

Dysplasia of the cervix can indicate the initial stages of cervical cancer. Dysplasia is very easy to treat if found at an early stage. It rarely shows symptoms and is often discovered only by a cervical smear evaluation.

The cervical smear is taken during a gynaecological examination at your general practitioner’s office, and you must make an appointment. Make sure to discuss with your doctor how you will receive your results.

If you have any symptoms or physical discomfort in your abdomen or lower body, please contact your general practitioner.

If you have any questions or want to unregister from the program, please call the Department of Public Health Programs, tel: +45 7842 0170. We are open Monday to Friday from 9–11 AM .
