There are many Pap smear treatments of different management and treatment options including colposcopy, conization, cryocauterization, laser therapy, and large-loop excision of the transformation zone. However, the procedures do vary considerably in a number of other respects and so will be discussed separately. Treatment options vary depending on the type of abnormality you have. It is important to have your abnormality treated as it is highly likely that you will be cured. If you leave your abnormality untreated, you are at risk of developing cervical cancer.
Most procedures take about 15 to 30 minutes and can be performed under a local anaesthetic in a clinic setting and by a gynaecologist or you may request a general anaesthetic in a day surgery. After your procedure, you should be able to return to normal activities within two to three days. Abnormal pap smear test is when the doctor feels that the pap smear test is abnormal and that the test will find some cells on the cervix that do not look normal. A pap test may be done as part of a woman's routine physical exam because it's the best way to prevent cervical cancer. Having an abnormal test result doesn't mean you have cancer. A cervical screening test is also sometimes called a cervical smear and is a simple procedure, where a doctor or nurse takes a sample of cells from the cervix (neck of the womb) to be examined for early changes on the cells. A cervical screening test can identify cell changes before they become cancer cells. If these cells are not found and treated, they could become cancerous over time.
