Abnormal Pap Smear

Abnormal Pap Smear Evaluation

The routine Pap smear is a cornerstone of our cervical cancer screening and prevention program. If your Pap smear is abnormal we will spend time to explain all the next steps in evaluating that abnormality.

These tests might include HPV screening and Colposcopy to further investigate and confirm the Pap result. We will also outline different management or treatment strategies. These could range from simply repeating the Pap test at more frequent intervals, to treatment with a Loop Electrical Excision Procedure or LEEP. We can also discuss and recommend the HPV vaccine that helps prevent abnormal pap smears.
