In situ Ca: Pap smears define the presence of cells that have been curetted or shed from the cervix. The test which is about 60% accurate defines early malignancy where there is no cervical bleeding or lesion seen on colposcopy. Abnormal cells require biopsy to see if in situ cervix ca is developing.
