Many women not up-to-date on their cervical cancer screening

from Oncology Nursing News

Many women within the recommended age for routine screening are not up to date on Pap tests. Even women who are approaching the age when they no longer need screening do not have an adequate prior screening history, according to Mary C. White, ScD, MPH. The average woman at risk for cervical cancer ranges between 21 to 65 years old. When those women reach 65 or older, they are considered to be no longer at risk and can discontinue screening if they were consistently screened with negative results. However, women over 65 who did not meet adequate prior screening criteria are still recommended for screening. more
