PAP Smear

PAP Smear: A Vital Tool for Women's Health

We emphasize the importance of preventive care and early detection in women’s reproductive health. The PAP smear, also known as PAP test or cervical cytology, is a simple yet powerful screening tool used to detect abnormal changes in the cells of the cervix. Regular PAP smears are crucial for early detection and prevention of cervical cancer, making them an integral part of our comprehensive gynecological services.

What is a PAP Smear?

A PAP smear involves collecting a small sample of cells from the cervix, which is the lower part of the uterus that connects to the vagina. These cells are then examined under a microscope to identify any abnormalities or signs of cervical cancer. The procedure is typically performed during a pelvic examination and is quick, painless, and generally well-tolerated by patients.

Why PAP Smears are Important

Cervical cancer is one of the most common gynecological cancers worldwide, but it is also highly preventable with regular screening. PAP smears play a crucial role in the early detection of cervical abnormalities, including precancerous changes, allowing for timely intervention and treatment. When detected early, cervical cancer is highly treatable, with excellent prognosis for recovery and long-term survival.

Who Should Undergo PAP Smears?

The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) recommends that women begin PAP smear screening at age 21, regardless of sexual activity or vaccination status for human papillomavirus (HPV). For women aged 21 to 29, PAP smears are typically performed every three years. From age 30 to 65, PAP testing can be done alone every three years or in combination with HPV testing every five years.

Women with certain risk factors may require more frequent PAP smears or additional testing, including:

  • History of abnormal PAP smear results
  • Previous diagnosis of cervical cancer or precancerous lesions
  • HIV infection or other immunocompromising conditions
  • Exposure to diethylstilbestrol (DES) in utero
  • Weakened immune system due to organ transplant or long-term corticosteroid use

We visited Dr. Basavaraj for our treatment. We had to visit for over an year and couple of procedures. Doctor is very knowledgeable and has vast experience. Nurses and other lab staff are good. Initially the wait time was less ,however off kate the wait time is on higher side since doctor does scan and procedures in parallel. The wait time doesn't change even with prior appointment . This is especially true in Marathahalli centre. This can be improved. I feel cost here for treatment is much lesser than any corporate hospitals or other centres. Doctor is mostly straight forward and not verbose. Also doctor prescribes just enough medication which might or might not be good, hard to judge.

Dr Devarshetty has a midas touch in his treatment apart from his knowledge skills as a infertility specialist. I recommend all patients to be open minded while consulting him. My wife had a very difficult phase in conceiving after getting ectopic pregnancy twice in 2015-16 because of her PCOD . Being a Dr myself i couldn't cope up with the stress with which i and my wife underwent during those times,later in 2016-17 after Dr Devarshetty advise and treatment we finally became parents and it was the most joyous moment of our married life. Now we have a healthy baby girl 10m old..posted mother and baby image.
