- A pap smear is a screening tool used to detect cervical cancer in women. U. S. Preventative Services Task Force (USPSTF) recommends screening for cervical cancer in women ages 21-65 years old every 3 years or for women ages 30-65 years who want to lengthen the screening interval, screening with a combination of cytology and human papillomavirus (HPV) testing every 5 years. The USPSTF does not recommend screening for cervical cancers in women younger than 21 years.
- This annual physical can occur during an office visit devoted to health maintenance. Please let the scheduler know you are a UNMC student making an appointment for your annual physical.
