WHY SHOULD I GET A PAP smear Done when I do not have any problem?
A Pap Test can save your life. It can identify pre-cancerous cellular changes that could develop into advanced cancer. If detected early, treatment for cervical cancer can be easier and the chances of curing it are greater. It is estimated that about half of the women diagnosed with cervical cancer have not had any routine pap tests.
