Two other women died of cervical cancer after being wrongly excluded from the Scottish screening program it emerged.
The Scottish government has said there is a strong suspicion that a person has developed cancer as a result of their exclusion.

They are added to death of 'a third woman announced in June.
The government has said that nearly 200,000 women who have been excluded from cervical cancer screening now need to be checked their records to make sure their exclusions are correct.
He admitted in June - the afternoon Holyrood entered on summer vacation - about 430 women who had hysterectomies were falsely told they needed to be screened, and a "small number " of them developed cervical cancer uterus.
The issue emerged during a routine audit of cervical cancer data at an unnamed Scottish board of health.

Minister of Women's Health, Maree Todd told the Scottish Parliament on Wednesday that it had since become clear that 170 other women had also been wrongly excluded from testing, bringing the total to around 600.
They don 't were not included in the original total because their Partial hysterectomies were performed before 1997 , when the recordings were more difficult to access.
All those who know they were affected have now been contacted and reinstated in the program of dicetracking, either offered an appointment with their GP or gynecology unit.

'Very complex case '
Ms Todd said clinical teams also performed a review of the cancer registry to determine if there were any other cases where an exclusion could have contributed to a diagnosis of cervical cancer.
She stated that there was a "high level of clinical suspicion " that a woman could have developed cervical cancer as a result of a erroneous exclusion of screening, although it was not possible toe say it for sure.
There was also a "very complex case " where several factors may have contributed to a diagnosis of cervical cancer, including incorrect exclusion of the cervix. cervical screening.
In both cases, the women have since died.
Ms. Todd offered her "sincere apologies to everyone affected by these errors ".
She added: "In particular, I offer my sincere apologies to the women excluded from the program who have developed cancer, and their families. I also recognize the anguish this has caused to all those who have had cancer. wrongly excluded from screening. "
