This is a routine part of a yearly gynecological exam, along with a breast exam, palpation of your abdomen and a discussion with your local OBGYN specialist in Manhattan. Abnormal pap smears should always be evaluated with a thorough consultation and examination by a physician for an accurate diagnosis and treatment plan as it may be a sign of a serious illness or condition.
While performing a Pap smear, your gynecologist actually brushes cells from your cervix after inserting a speculum in your vagina. Dr. Fernando Mariz, a best-in-class gynecologist sent the tissue samples to a lab to be analyzed. Pap smears allow your doctor to track any changes in your cervix, which could be indicative of several things, including cancer.
The Pap smear results may contain any of the following:
Normal cells Abnormal cells Presence of the human papilloma virus (HPV)
Pap smear recommendations change frequently, make sure to always ask your gynecologist for the most current recommendation on screening
Normal cells constitute a negative result. Abnormal cells, and even the presence of HPV, can tell your local gynecologist several different things. A Pap smear allows your New York gynecologist to catch conditions in a very early stage — before the development of cervical cancer. Luckily, this is a very slow-growing form of cancer, so it can take years before it becomes life-threatening.
