A Pap smear is a quick, simple and readily available test for early signs of cervical cancer.
The test is performed by using a small brush to collect surface cells from the cervix. This is then placed into a collection bottle and sent to the lab for review. The whole process is very quick and pain-free.
A normal Pap smear result technically means you shouldn’t need to screen again for 3 years but our advice is to do it once yearly for peace of mind.
At the same time, women can be screened for the Human Papilloma Virus (HPV), which is the number 1 cause of cervical cancer.
