"Liz Kendall accuses Labour leadership rivals of conducting hurtful smear test campaign"

From The Evening Standard and Wikipedia:

A supporter of Liz Kendall has accused her Labour leadership rivals of carrying out a hurtful "smear test” campaign.

Other leadership contenders suggested that Miss Kendall, 44, had cervical screening to detect potentially pre-cancerous and cancerous processes in her cervix (opening of the uterus or womb). Mr Woodcock said the highly personal rumours circulating in Labour circles were "totally unacceptable" and needed to stop.

Abnormal findings are often followed up by more sensitive diagnostic procedures, and, if warranted, interventions that aim to prevent progression to cervical cancer.
