PAP smear

The PAP smear is a cytological examination of a sample from the outer surface of the cervix and the cervical canal, obtained during a normal gynecological examination.


The sample is fixed and sent to a specialized laboratory for evaluation by a certified pathologist.


By using staining techniques and microscopic examination, the pathologist makes a conclusion about the type and degree of changes in the cells that are located on the surface of the cervix and the beginning of the cervical canal.


The examination does not require any special preparation on your part.


PAP smear

It is usually performed in the first few days after the end of a regular period.


The results are usually ready within a few working days and are received personally by the patient after consultation with your doctor.
