The Pap test, also known as the Papanicolaou test or Pap smear, is a screening procedure designed to detect abnormal cervical cells that could lead to cervical cancer.
How it is done?
The test involves collecting cells from the cervix and examining them under a microscope to identify any abnormalities.
Why we need it?
It is a crucial part of women's preventive healthcare, helping to detect precancerous or cancerous changes early on. The frequency of Pap testing varies based on factors such as age and individual risk, and it may be combined with HPV testing for a more comprehensive assessment. Regular Pap testing is essential for early detection and intervention in cervical health.
