According to Klara Gershman, MD, Primary Care Physician with Care Resource,
“Pap smears are an important tool for screening for cervical cancer which helps with both prevention and timely diagnosis. Pap smears save lives.”
IN THE KNOW…
Pap smears are generally painless and usually done during a pelvic exam. The cervix with is brushed with a cotton swab to collect cells from its surface, and then sends the cells off for analysis to see if there are any abnormal cells present.
Although Pap smears can seem like an uncomfortable nuisance, they are critical to keeping women of all ages healthy.
