If you are a woman aged between 25 to 74 years, you should have a cervical screening test (“pap smear”) every 5 years, starting at age 25.
The test is a simple procedure to check the health of your cervix. It is quick and is usually associated with minimal discomfort. It detects the human papillomavirus (known as HPV), which is an infection that can cause cervical cell changes that may lead to cervical cancer.
Cervical cancer is one of the most preventable cancers. Routine cervical screening is your best protection against cervical cancer.
All of the doctors at Diamond Valley Clinic perform pap smears on a frequent basis. All consultations are conducted in a comfortable, confidential setting.
