The term “pap test” is short for Papanicolaou test and is a test designed to detect cervical cancer in women. The Pap smear is most often performed by gynecologists, obstetricians or OB/GYNs.
The Pap smear may not be right for all women. The American Cancer Society recommends that this procedure begin to be performed at age 21, as the potential harm of the procedure may outweigh the benefits if done before that age.
Generally, the guidelines for how often a pap smear should be performed are:
No Pap smear testing is required for women have had a total hysterectomy or women in their early twenties who have never had sexual contact.
The Pap smear test itself takes just a short amount of time. When approaching a Pap smear appointment, it's important to avoid sexual intercourse. In order to avoid discomfort and false positives, the Pap test should not be performed during the menstrual period.
During the test:
The test features no downtime and daily activities can resume immediately after. The cervical cells need to be taken to a laboratory where they are then analyzed for cancerous or pre-cancerous cells.
Many women feel uncomfortable about receiving a pap smear, but the early-detection of cervical cancer is crucial. Request more information about pap smears today: call (408) 946-9453 or contact us online.
