Abnormal smear test - women health question and answer

 I had a smear test recently and have just been recalled for another one. Why have they done this?
  Abnormal smears are more common among women in the 25 to 34 age group,and of every 100 that show up abnormal the likelihood is that less than 15 of these women would eventually develop a real cervical cancer-even if they had no treatment.The trouble is it is not possible to identify exactly which 15 woman out of the 100 are at real risk treatment must be offered to all woman with an abnormal smear occasionally,the smear test can be altered by a mild vaginal infection and women are then recalled for early repeat smears. This is merely a precaution and nothing at all to get worried about.
