A Pap smear is a screening procedure for cervical cancer. It tests for the presence of precancerous or cancerous cells on your cervix (opening of the uterus). During the procedure, cells from your cervix are gently scraped away and examined for abnormal growth. Current guidelines recommend that women get regular Pap smears every three years starting at age 21. Some women may be at increased risk for cancer or infection. You may need more frequent tests if you’re HIV-positive or you have a weakened immune system from chemotherapy or an organ transplant.
▸ Imaging (Abdomen & Pelvis Ultrasound)
Ultrasound abdomen and pelvis is an imaging test used in the assessment of solid organs and fluid-filled structures. In the abdomen, it can be used to examine the liver, gallbladder, biliary tract, part of the renal tract, pancreas, spleen, kidneys, major blood vessels and appendix. In the pelvis, for females, it is used to visualise the uterus, cervix, ovaries, Fallopian tubes and bladder. In the pelvis, for males, it is used to visualise the prostate, bladder and seminal vesicles.
▸ Imaging (Digital Mammogram)
Screening mammography is a specific type of breast imaging used to detect cancer early before women experience symptoms. Usually done above age 40, when breast tissue is less dense, making ultrasound imaging less accurate in this age group.
