Canadian women should start being routinely screened for cervical cancer at a later age than previously recommended.

That’s the latest advice from an expert panel.

The chair of the panel, Dr. James Dickinson, says women should be screened every three years instead of annually.

The new guidelines come from The Canadian Task Force for Preventive Health Care -which recommends  that women start being screened at age 25 and stop at age 70 if their thre most recent  tests were negative.

Screening for women 24 and younger is not recommended.
