Update on Pap Smear Guidelines
We at Kamm McKenzie are updating our Pap smear guidelines to follow the most recent recommendations. In the past, many women have been advised to have annual Pap smears or Pap smears every 3 years. The most recently updated guidelines as of April 2021 have changed to increase the duration between screenings due to our evolving knowledge of how cervical cancer develops. We have learned it takes many many years to go from an abnormal Pap to cervical cancer, thus allowing us to space out the time between screenings.
