Screening Guidelines for Cervical Cancer and Pap Smears Revised

The American Society of Clinical Oncology meets in Chicago and will review a new study which suggests that 3 year intervals are safe for Cervical Cancer Screening Tests.

Most women aged 30 and older with normal Pap and human paillomavirus (HPV) test results can safely wait three years until their next set of cervical cancer screening tests, according to a new study.

Such co-testing is currently recommended by the American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists. The guidelines note that women with certain risk factors for cervical cancer may need more frequent testing.
