Which women’s health screenings do I need?

In addition to your regular checkups, your doctor may recommend one or more of the following women’s health screenings and tests.

Pap smear

During a Pap smear, your doctor swabs your cervix to test for abnormal cells. Coming in for a Pap smear every three years can help prevent or lead to an early diagnosis of cervical cancer.

Pelvic exam

A pelvic exam gives your doctor the opportunity to physically inspect your reproductive organs for any abnormalities. During this visit, your doctor examines your vagina, cervix, vulva, ovaries, uterus, and fallopian tubes.

Breast cancer screening

If you come into the office for a well-woman exam, your doctor performs a thorough breast exam to check for signs of breast cancer. Once you turn 40, you may be advised to have regular mammograms.

Colon cancer screening

Depending on your age and family history, you and your doctor may discuss colon cancer screenings. Most experts recommend beginning colon cancer screenings once you turn 50, but you may be advised to start earlier if you have a family history.
