The Pap Test is an excellent way for women to prevent cervical cancer. It is the only way to detect abnormal cells in the cervix which, if left untreated, could develop into cancer. Each year in Canada 400,000 women receive an abnormal Pap test result, about 1500 women are diagnosed with cervical cancer and almost 400 women die from this disease. The good news is that since 1996 the incidence of cervical cancer has declined and, since 1995, mortality rates have also decreased. the main reasons for these reductions are improved knowledge, the widespread regular use of Pap test screening, and the availabiliy of HPV vaccination.
