Cervical cancer

The Pap test looks for early warning signs of cervical cancer. Sexually active women 21 to 70 need a Pap test every 3 years.

Cervical cancer is preventable. Regular screening through the Ontario cervical screening program is an essential defense against this type of cancer. In Ontario, cervical cancer screening is recommended every three years for all women starting at age 21 who are or ever have been sexually active.
