The Papanicolaou smear (Pap test) is a test used to screen women for cervical precancer or cancer. Testing for human papilloma virus (HPV), see below, is another type of test for cervical cancer that can be used in women over age 30 in conjunction with the Pap test. Pap tests can find cervical cancer and precancer in the early stages when it can be treated, and thus may reduce the number of deaths from cervical cancer.
