Pap tests save lives.

  • Pap tests (or Pap smears) pick up changes to your cells that can be treated before cervical cancer develops.
  • Regular Pap tests can reduce your risk of being diagnosed with cervical cancer by up to 96%. 
  • Most women who are diagnosed with cervical cancer in Australia, have not had regular Pap tests. 
  • If you’re aged between 18 and 69 years and have ever been sexually active you need to have a Pap test every two years — even if you’ve had the cervical cancer vaccine.
  • Make an appointment with your doctor or nurse today.
