Cervical cancer is a common diagnosis for women worldwide. Routine screening can detect early stages of the disease. The development of Papanicolaou (Pap) test has helped to prevent the development of the advanced stage of the disease and also to reduce cervical cancer related mortality. PAP test is offered in our clinic according to the recommendations of Alberta Cervical Cancer Screening guidelines. We will be happy to answer your questions regarding getting a PAP smear.
