Papanicolaou – Pap Test

Screening Guidelines

Cervical Cancer Screening

Used to find changes in the cells of the cervix specifically in the squamocolumnar junction AKA zone of transformation that could lead to cancer. Screening includes cervical cytology (AKA Pap test or Pap smear) and, for some women, testing for human papillomavirus (HPV), which if present with neoplastic changes can lead to cervical cancer.
