  • Abstract Nowadays, cases of pre-cancer lesion and cervical cancer for young females have been increasing in every nation, however cervical cancer screenings are not prevalently as expectation. The study is based on Theory of Planed Behavior (TPB) in association of personal background property and related cognitions of cervical cancer and cervical cancer screening to explore young females’ behavior intention toward cervical cancer screening in present and future. The objective research samples are females in Taiwan and whose ages are from 20 to 29. We adopted questionnaires on web and retrieved 416 valid samples. The result indicates that TPB’s factors and personal background have significant relationship on having behavior intention of cervical cancer screening in present and future. In particular, perceived behavioral control and subjective norm are significant predictive index, and also perceived behavioral control is remarkable. Attitude plays the role of mediator between cognition and behavior intention. The higher cognition, the more positive the attitude, so it leads to higher behavior intention of having cervical cancer screening. Furthermore, young females’ mates and spouses’ supports could facilitate them to have cervical cancer screening in terms of behavior intention in present and future. If the cervical cancer screening age for providing free screening could be younger, more young females shall be willing to undergo such screening.
