Screening for cervical cancer
- Screening for cervical cancer includes Pap smear and human papillomavirus (HPV) testing.
- A doctor can take a Pap smear to examine the cells of your cervix to understand the risk of cervical cancer, which when detected early is highly treatable
- It is suggested that Pap smears along with routine pelvic exams should be done at least once every three years for all women above 21 years of age
- A pelvic examination also aids in checking the health of your reproductive organs, including vagina, ovaries, fallopian tubes, uterus, vulva, and cervix
- However, if you are experiencing symptoms such as vaginal bleeding, cysts, or have suffered from a sexually transmitted disease, or have a family history of cancer, your doctor will ask you to get these tests done more frequently.
