Being diagnosed with cervical cancer is one of the hardest experiences one can face. In an instant, it can feel like your entire life has been completely transformed. Don’t wait until it’s too late. At Cohen Medical practice, we offer PAP smear tests and abnormal PAP consultations to help you in your battle against cervical cancer. This straightforward procedure involves the collection of cells from your cervix for testing purposes. Though it might be somewhat uncomfortable, our New York City team will do everything possible to ease the experience. If you have noticed abnormal discharge, pelvic pain, or other concerns related to your vaginal health, we urge you to book your appointment with us today.
What Are PAP Consultations?
A PAP smear procedure, also called a cervical smear, is a simple test to detect cervical cancer in women. Early discovery of precancerous cells thanks to this procedure can help us outline an effective treatment plan. If abnormalities are detected, we can provide you with an abnormal PAP consultation to explore your treatment options. At Cohen Medical Practice, we offer a range of surgical options to give you the best prognosis possible.
What Can an Abnormal PAP Consultation Reveal?
Along with helping identify signs of cancer, a PAP smear can often reveal the presence of atypical squamous cells of undetermined significance (ASCUS). These cells are not necessarily cancerous but may be indicative of HPV. During your abnormal PAP consultation, our team will identify the nature of these cells (if any abnormalities are found) and offer the treatment solutions you need.
How Does an Abnormal PAP Consultation Work?
During a PAP smear, we will collect a few cells from your cervix for testing, usually over the course of a pelvic exam. This process takes only a few minutes to perform. During the session, a spatula and brush will be used to collect the cells needed for testing. The sensation of getting a PAP test is tolerable for most people. Once we have collected the cells, you can get dressed and go about your day normally. We will test the cells and let you know if any further action is necessary.
What Can I Expect?
A PAP smear allows us to rule out cervical cancer with a high likelihood of accuracy in just a few minutes. If you get a positive result, it allows us to do further testing so that we can take appropriate action early in order to provide you with the best possible outcome. This is a simple procedure that rarely has any side effects. As with any procedure, there is a small chance of a false negative result, although this is quite rare, and will almost certainly be corrected at your next test.
