Pap Smear

If your pap test results came back positive, that means abnormal or unusual cells on your cervix were found. It does not mean you have cervical cancer.

Most often, the abnormal test result means there have been cell changes caused by the human papillomavirus (HPV). HPV is the most common sexually transmitted infection (STI), and can be linked to cervical cancer. Changes to your cervical cells caused by HPV can be mild, moderate, or severe.

How can we help?

If you present with an abnormal pap smear, you will need a colposcopy (looking at the cervix with a microscope). This can help us determine the type of abnormality, and whether treatment is required.

Almost all pap test abnormalities are pre-cancers and not cancer. Simple treatment of the pre-cancers can prevent the progression into cancer. Please contact our rooms for a consultation.
