A 23-year-old woman who has been left infertile from cervical cancer is campaigning for the cervical screening age to be reduced from 25 to 20.
Natalie Carney, from Mansfield, was diagnosed last year with cervical cancer at the age of 22. Extensive treatment to fight the disease, such as chemotherapy and radiotherapy, has left her unable to have children in the future.
Currently the age for smear testing, which detects the disease, begins at 25. However Miss Carney is one of many young women to develop the condition before that age. She believes if she was allowed to have a smear test from the NHS the outcome would have been different.
