Gynecologic cancer screening and diagnosis
Gynecological cancer screening begins with yearly pelvic exams and Pap smears at your doctor's office. The Pap test is one of the most reliable and effective cervical cancer screening tests available. Your doctor may also use the human papillomavirus (HPV) test to screen for cervical cancer, which can provide more information if you receive an unclear Pap test result.
Discussing any abdominal pain or urinary issues can help your physician determine if additional tests are needed to screen for other gynecological cancers, such as ovarian cancer.
