What is Cervical Cancer Screening?
Cervical screening is the test to find out the presence of precancerous and cancerous cells of the cervix. Cervical cancer at the early stages can be cured easily. Cervix is the part of your body where your baby grows.
Our experienced doctors at Brundavan Women & Child Care centre use two main tests to spot the cell changes in the cervix and identify related viral infections (if any).
The two tests of screening for cervical cancer are:
- Pap test- Cells from the cervix are collected and examined to detect the presence of cancerous or precancerous cells.
- HPV test- The cells from the cervix are collected and examined to detect HPV (Human papillomavirus), which spreads through sexual contact.
If the results from the above tests show abnormal results, your doctor may suggest you to undergo a biopsy.
According to our expert doctors, regular screening gives you a great chance to cure. Your doctor may recommend for more-frequent pap smears if you have certain risk factors such as:
- HIV infection
- A smoking history
- If pap smear results show traces of precancerous cell.
Our well-trained doctors can discuss the risks and benefits of pap smears and advice you on what is best for you based on your health.
How is Cervical Cancer Screening (Pap Smear) Performed?
Pap smear is performed in a few minutes. You will be asked to lie down on your back. This process involves the use of an instrument called "speculum." The doctor will collect a sample of cervical cells by gently scraping the cervix. The cervical cells are also examined for HPV.
After you are done with the pap smear, you can continue with your daily routine without any restrictions.
If during your pap smear, unusual or abnormal cells were discovered, our doctors may perform a colposcopy procedure to examine the tissues of the cervix, vulva, and vagina. Our doctor can also take a tissue sample from the areas which appeared abnormal.
We at Brundavan Women & Child Care centre gives you the comfort and the best possible cervical cancer screening.
