Treatment for Women with Abnormal Pap Results Available at Vecino’s Denver Harbor Clinic

Treatment for Women with Abnormal Pap Results Available at Vecino’s Denver Harbor Clinic

Learning that you have an abnormal pap smear can be scary.

What other tests will I have to go through? Will I need treatment?

As if these worries weren’t enough, women with abnormal pap smears are usually sent to a specialist across town for inconvenient and time-consuming appointments.

Now, treatment is available on site at Vecino’s Denver Harbor Clinic.

Doctors from Houston Methodist’s OB/GYN department will staff a weekly clinic that lets women with abnormal pap smears see a specialist right in their primary care home.

If the test shows that your cervical cells don’t look normal, your doctor will tell you that you have an “abnormal pap smear.” This might turn out to be nothing, but it also might be a sign of infection or cervical cancer. You will probably need to have more tests to find out.

What is a pap smear?

A pap smear is a routine test that doctors use to make sure the cells on your cervix look normal. It only takes a few minutes and can be done right in a doctor’s office.

Is it time to schedule your routine pap smear?

Having a pap smear only takes a few minutes, and it’s well worth the time.

Women with a low risk of cervical cancer should get routine pap smears on the schedule listed below. Depending on your medical or family history, your doctor might ask you to take more frequent tests.

Pap smear schedule
  • Ages 21-29: Every 3 years
  • Ages 30-65: Every 3-5 years, depending on other tests and factors

If you are due for a pap smear, or need to talk with a doctor about your risk level, call Vecino to schedule an appointment. New patients are welcome.
