You : You need to discuss the results of your pap smear with your doctor again so you better understand what was found. Sometimes a test is done with the pap smear to determine if the cerix is infected with a strain of hpv that would put you at a higher risk for cancer and sometimes a special examination of the cervix called a colposcopy is needed to double check the area. Thankfully, many, many women who have abnormal cells will not develop cancer. ...Read more

How rare is it that a 21 year old catch cervical cancer... What is the age range?

How rare is it that a 21 year old catch cervical cancer... What is the age range?

Very rare before 21: Cervical cancer is rare before age 21, and doing pap smears before then actually may cause more harm than good because it leads to more falsely positive test results. Cervical cancer is most common at age 35-55. The current us preventive services task force recommendation is to get paps every 3 years at ages 21-65. A good prevention resource is an iphone app called my health checklist 2012. ...Read more

What are the chances of developing advanced cervical cancer if last pap was normal and about a year ago?

What are the chances of developing advanced cervical cancer if last pap was normal and about a year ago?

Quite unlikely ....: Not precise, but I would think the answer is something less than 2-3%. But the catch is if you had a "true" normal. Unfortunately, the Pap test, like any test, is not perfect. The chances of a Pap smear being reported as negative, when it is truly positive (a false neg), is probably around 25%, due to not retrieving proper cells or errors in lab handling. Then subsequent cancer chance higher. ...Read more

This cancer is very treatable if caught early, so that is why annual pap smears are essential. Also, the hpv vaccine can help to prevent infection in the 1st place. ...Read more
