Regarding the various reasons for potential deviations from routine screening frequency, women believe that they can’t continue with the examination since the appointment determined in the letter is not appropriate and arranging for another appointment would be too complicated. Some women feel so occupied and would only participate in the screening if appointments were available apart from their working hours. Some women are afraid, and this enables them to stay away from screenings. Women of age 50 and above feel a greater sense of shyness as compared to the young. Some women have trust issues and would not trust the assistants helping them (Pakai, 2016).
