Pap Smear Test and Cervical Cancer Prevention

Pap smear test is a screening procedure for testing cervical cancer in women.  It helps you to reveal changes in the cervical cells where it may turn into cancer later. 


HPV Vaccine

Most cervical cancers are associated with human papillomavirus (HPV) and spread through sexual contact. The HPV vaccine prevents most of these cases of cervical cancer before a girl or woman is exposed to the virus. We recommend it for young girls.
