Why is it important for women to obtain regular Pap smear screenings?

A Pap smear, or Pap test, is an essential health screening tools for women who are over the age of 21. The test is conducted by collecting cells from the cervix, and then examining those cells under a microscope in a lab setting. If the cells show abnormalities, the physician may need to perform additional testing. Pap smears are the primary diagnostic tool for identifying cancer of the cervix. Because cervical cancer is curable if detected early, the importance of having routine Pap smears cannot be overstated.
