Pap Test

A Pap test, also called a Pap smear, is a screening test that checks for cervical cancer in women. It’s your best protection against cervical cancer.

During a Pap smear a doctor or specialist collects cells from your cervix and examines them under a microscope. Based on the results, you may or may not need follow-up care.

With a Pap test, your doctor or health care provider can detect a problem before you are even aware that something is wrong. And the earlier you detect cervical cancer, the better are your chances for successful treatment.

Mercy physicians are highly skilled in administering Pap tests. Although they are quick and simple procedures, they can be an important part of preventive care. In just a few minutes, your Mercy doctor can complete the test – helping you stay healthy and potentially adding years to your life.
