Annual pap test a ‘thing of the past?’

Newly released cervical cancer screening recommendations push testing intervals out from once a year to once every three to five years depending on your age. Less frequent screening may save money for the health insurance companies and time and inconvenience for women, but it potentially magnifies the consequences of a misread Pap smear or lab error. In some past delayed diagnosis of cervical cancer cases, a review of prior year Pap smears showed early signs of cancer had been missed. A year delay from a misread Pap smear is not nearly as frightening as a five year delay.
