ABNORMAL PAP RESULT
Pap smear tests are a vital part of preventative care. Our team will develop a plan for next steps in the case of finding abnormal cells in the cervix tissue following a pap test.
Several types of cancer, including breast, gynecological, and colorectal, have inherited genetic risk factors. Testing is available for malignant tumors in the breasts, cervix, or ovaries, as well as genetic cancer screening to determine whether you carry genetic risk factors for developing certain types of cancer.
Usually performed after an abnormal pap result, a colposcopy offers a closer examination of the cells of the cervix, vagina, and vulva for signs of cancer. We offer colposcopy to ensure the health of our patients.
An effective way to keep healthy is to prevent many conditions from developing in the first place. Carnegie Women’s Health offers testing and counseling for a variety of conditions and risk factors, including HPV, HIV, gestational diabetes, and domestic violence.
