What is a pap test (also called vaginal cytology)?
Pap tests are performed on sexually active women as a preventive measure in order to detect precancerous conditions and cervical or vaginal cancers.
Indeed, up to 90% of cervical cancer cases could be prevented if women regularly underwent pap tests and VPH vaccination.
