“Ignorance isn’t bliss! I came to know this the hard way when I went for my Pap test within the first few months of landing in the USA from India…I went through the process for 2 years before I had a normal result. If left undetected and untreated, abnormal cells on the cervix can grow out of control. I shudder at the fact that I could have fallen prey to cervical cancer if I hadn’t taken the test!”
