Cervical Cancer Screening

  • Cervical cancer screening is done using a Pap test
  • Pap tests find unhealthy changes in the cells of the cervix that may indicate the presence of cervical cancer or precancerous lesions, which can be treated so cancer does not develop
  • Your health care provider can perform a Pap test as part of a general physical exam
