Annual Pap Test For Women

The Pap Test for women is a checkup that doctors recommend in order to test for cervical cancer. Dr. Joanne Hinson is knowledgeable in the many changes in women’s bodies, and can help you make the best decision for your feminine health.

To schedule an appointment and to discuss your medical options, call us at 801-364-4030.

The Pap Test, more commonly known as the Pap Smear is a procedure that checks a woman’s cervix for any abnormal cell changes. It is recommended for all women between the ages of 21-65 and can be done at any doctor’s office or clinic. The changes that can develop on the cervix may, if not found and treated, lead into cervical cancer. In most cases, cervical cancer is preventable and regular Pap tests are the key to finding the abnormal cells early.

How often should I get the Pap Test?

It is best to talk to your doctor, but the frequency depends on age and your health history, as well as any family cancers or diseases. Some women go every year, while others go every couple of years. 

Sometimes a patient may decide to get tested for the human pappilomavirus, or HPV. This can be done right along with the Pap test, and no need for additional time or procedures.

Dr. Hinson is personal and compassionate, with over 25 years of specialty GYN experience. She has committed herself to the unique and individual needs of women, from puberty to post-menopause. To schedule an intake appointment to find out what options are best for you, please call Dr. Hinson's friendly staff at 801-364-4030.
