Cervical Cancer Screening and PAP Testing

Early detection of cervical cancer can save lives!

The cervix is the muscular lower part of the uterus that extends into the vagina.   Cancer develops when healthy cells in this area become abnormal and then turn malignant.

Cervical cancer screening with a PAP smear is recommended for all women every 3 years beginning at age 21 who are or have ever been sexually active up to age 70.

Please visit Cancer Care Ontario for more detailed information on cervical cancer screening.
