The cervix is the name for the 'neck' of the womb or the opening between the body of the womb (uterus) and the vagina. 

Cervical screening (a smear test) checks the health of your cervix. It  is not a test for cancer, it's a test to help prevent cancer and is offered to all women in the UK, with a cervix, aged 25 to 64.
