Women's health: Checking for cervical cancer

Screening is looking for cancer before a person has any symptoms. This can help find cancer at an early stage, when it is easier to treat. To screen for cervical cancer, a doctor performs a Pap test, sometimes called a Pap smear. This test looks for changes in the cells of the cervix. The cervix is the lower part of the womb, which opens into the vagina. The Pap test can find cancer cells or cells that could turn into cancer.

Cervical cancer is a slow-growing cancer and is usually caused by HPV (human papillomavirus). HPV is a group of viruses that are spread by having sex with an infected person.

Because cervical cancer takes a long time to develop, regular Pap tests may find changes in cells before they become cancer. This means that getting regular Pap tests can find cancer early, when treatment has the best chance of success.

All women between the ages of 21 and 64 should get a Pap test at least once every 3 years. Women younger than 30 have a higher risk of cervical cancer and may need to get a Pap test every year. Women who have had an abnormal Pap test also may need to a get Pap test every year.

Who is at risk for cervical cancer?
Any woman can get cervical cancer. You are more likely to be at risk for cervical cancer if you:

  • Have the virus called HPV (human papillomavirus)
  • Smoke


This measure shows the percent of women 21 to 64 years old in each practice who received a Pap test. A higher number is better.

If your doctor's office is not listed it means there was not enough information available to report this measure.

Why it is important:
Checking women 21 to 64 years old for cervical cancer saves lives. When found early, the chance of curing cervical cancer is very high.

What you and your doctor should do:
Good health requires a partnership. Your doctor cannot do it alone. You and your doctor should plan for the Pap smear when appropriate. Your doctor should tell you how often you need to have a Pap test based on your risk factors for cervical cancer. Generally women should have a Pap test every 1 to 3 years.

How does cervical cancer affect our community?

  • The American Cancer society estimates that in 2010, over 12,000 new cases of cervical cancer will be diagnosed.
  • Every year, cervical cancer treatment costs over $2 billion in the U.S.
