The Pap test has been leading the fight against cervical cancer for decades. Before introduction of the screening, cervical cancer was the #1 cancer killer of women. Now, it’s #14.
That’s a drastic difference.
But now proposed changes to the guidelines could eliminate the Pap, leaving thousands of women vulnerable to incomplete testing.
We can’t let that happen.
Not only do these two tests work well together to give a comprehensive screening, eliminating the well-known pap test could lead women to believe they don’t need access to the regular exams that protect their reproductive health.
For the health of all women, the Pap and HPV tests should remain a part of your routine wellness screening.
