Every woman. Every 2 years.
Most women who develop cervical cancer have not had regular Pap tests.
A Pap test is a simple check to look for cell changes on the cervix that may lead to cervical cancer if left untreated.
All women aged 18 to 70 who have ever had sexual contact are encouraged to have a Pap test every two years.
Regular Pap tests are recommended even if you are currently single or widowed, or have only had one partner. Pap tests are just as important after menopause.
The test and results are confidential and if you prefer, it is fine to ask for a female doctor or nurse to do the test.
Ask your doctor or community health nurse or call TIS on 13 14 50 and ask to speak to a Cancer Council nurse.
Cancer Council can also help you find a doctor or nurse who speaks Hindi or Punjabi at a clinic near you.
