Cervical cancer controversy continues

Cervical cancer controversy continues”

When she returned for a routine smear test three years later in 2014, she was told she had cervical cancer.

A Donegal solicitor believes there are a number of women in Donegal who have been told their smear tests were clear of any abnormalities when in fact this may not be the case.

'I have sent in a senior team to CervicalCheck, they have pulled the files of all 206 women, these are women that would have been in 15 different hospitals around the country, a lot of different clinicians'.

A 43-year-old woman who was given mistaken test outcomes and is now critically ill with cervical cancer has settled her High Court activity against a U.S. lab for €2.5m.

"Ms Phelan's original 2011 test was carried out by Clinical Pathology Laboratories in Austin Texas".

She revealed that Simon Harris had called her personally to apologise for the health service letting her down.

The HSE said treating clinicians were informed about these findings and were asked to communicate with their patients directly where clinically appropriate.

It follows the recent controversy over smear test results.

It is amid revelations that more than 200 reviews of tests suggested women with cervical cancer should have received "earlier intervention".

"A cancer diagnosis is one of the most, if not the most, hard experiences a person and their family can deal with".

"We have always advocated and campaigned for resources for screening, particularly in relation to cervical screening because it is the best measure we have to avoid cervical cancer, which is a terrible cancer, but is one that, if caught early enough, can be managed".

"It has helped reduce the cervical cancer rate nationally at a rate of 7% per year".

Detecting and removing abnormal cervical cells can prevent cervical cancer.

However, it acknowledged that there will "never be a health service without some degree of human error".

Ms Phelan, of Carrigeen, Annacotty, Co Limerick alongside her better half Jim Phelan has sued the Health Service Executive and Clinical Pathology Laboratories Inc, Austin, Texas, over a spread test taken under the National Cervical Screening Program CervicalCheck and dissected in the United States research facility.
