Self-screening approved by FDA for cervical cancer

Newswise May 25, 2024

A way to self-collect a sample to prevent cervical cancer is now available for women.

The test to self-screen for human papillomavirus (HPV) was approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.

Normally, HPV tests are performed by gynecologists by swabbing the cervix to collect a sample of cells. Now, patients will be able to perform these tests themselves by inserting the swab that will then be sent to a lab for testing.

These self-screenings must be done in a private room inside a doctor’s office, mobile clinic or another health care setting.
