Abnormal Pap Smears

PAP smears are a screening test to help in the prevention of cervical cancer. Human Papilloma Virus (HPV) is the usual cause of an abnormal PAP smear. Up to 80% of women will carry HPV at some time in their life, but only some of these women will develop an abnormal PAP smear.

An abnormal PAP smear will need follow-up by your physician. Follow-up may include an examination with a magnifying scope to help identify if there are any precancerous areas. If an abnormality is identified, it commonly will resolve on its own with observation. Sometimes further treatment is needed to remove these areas and usually can be done in the office.
