In brief: Start with pap smear

Pap smear is a screening test for cervical cancer.
If papsmear is abnormal further test like colposcopy with biopsy or endometrial sampling or other test would probaby be needed - depending on the papmsear/biopsy result - to establish a diagnosis. Discuss further with your gynecologist and have serial papsmear as recommended.
