Pap and HPV test
A Pap and HPV test consist of taking a small sample of cells from the cervix to
help detect abnormal cell changes that could lead to cervical cancer. During the
test, the gynecologist introduces a spatula to collect the sample.
A colposcopy uses a colposcope to look into the cervix to help detect or
diagnose genital warts, cervicitis, as well as precancerous cells in the cervix
or vulva. If the specialist finds something that doesn’t look normal, will
collect a sample of cells that will be sent to a lab.
