    PAP Smears

    A Pap test is a test of a sample of cells taken from a woman’s cervix. The test is used to look for changes in the cells of the cervix that show cancer or conditions that may develop into cancer.

    It is the best tool to detect precancerous conditions and hidden, small tumors that may lead to cervical cancer. If detected early, cervical cancer can be cured.

    Pap screen testing should begin at age 21. Routine screening is recommended every three years for women 21-65 years old. For women 30 to 65 years who have a normal Pap test with a negative HPV test, screening every five years is considered adequate.
