The Pap test (also called Pap Smear) is a quick and simple test that checks for changes to the cells of the cervix that may lead to cervical cancer. All women aged between 18 and 70 years who have ever been sexually active should have a Pap test every two years. During the test, an instrument called a speculum is gently inserted into the vagina. This allows the cervix (the neck of the womb) to be clearly seen. A small spatula or a tiny brush is then inserted to collect cells from the cervix. These cells are smeared onto a glass slide and sent to a laboratory for analysis.
