Pap smear

Pap smear

In the case of a pap smear, the doctor removes cells from the cervix with a brush or spatula. The smear shows whether there are indications for (a pre-stage of) cervical cancer.

The pathologist examines the cells under the microscope. If abnormal cells are seen in the pap smear, a new pap smear is done or further investigation takes place: a colposcopy.
