Pap Smears

A Pap smear is a medical procedure in which a sample of cells from a woman's cervix is collected examined under a microscope.  The purpose is to look for pre-malignant or malignant cancer.

A Pap smear is a simple, quick, and painless screening test. In the vast majority of cases, a Pap smear identifies minor cellular abnormalities before they have had a chance to become malignant. Hopefully, a pap smear can find abnormal cells when it is most easily treatable.

The Pap smear is not intended to detect other forms of cancer such as those of the ovary, vagina, or uterus. Cancer of these organs may be discovered during the course of the gynecologic pelvic exam, which usually is done at the same time as the Pap smear.

Office visits are by appointment. We always try to accommodate emergency calls that day. Dr Hinson, by virtue of special education, training and skills, is equipped to meet the health care needs of women and to provide continuity of care from adolescence through the post-menopausal years.
