For a PAP smear, the doctor requires to collect a sample of your cell structures present on your cervix. The procedure is performed at the doctor's clinic and requires around 15-20 minutes.

In a PAP smear, your cervical cells are scraped out using a metallic or plastic speculum. This tool is inserted through your vagina to gently collect a sample of the cell bodies on the cervix. The sample is collected in a tiny glass jar. A liquid is poured into the jar to keep the cell structure from dying. The sample is then taken to a pathological center to closely study it.

The results of the test are positive or negative. Negative results indicate that there is no problem with your cervical cells. Positive results show that cells in your cervix are affected with a disease. Not all positive results indicate the presence of cancer. Such reports can also state that you have inflammation in your cervical areas or dysplasia (minor changes in the cellular structures).

In case of positive results, doctor may take one or more tests to confirm cancer or another cervical anomaly. You may experience pain around your cervical area for few hours after the procedure. If you experience long term pain around your diagnosed area, consult your healthcare expert immediately.

If you are diagnosed with a certain cervical issue, it is important that you begin your treatment right away. Delay can increase problems; especially for cancer patients. Cases of inflammation, infection, etc. also need timely medical attention.
