New cervical cancer screening recommendations for BC

The BC Cancer Agency has released new recommendations for cervical cancer screening. Some highlights of the new recommendations are:

  • First age for Pap testing is 25 years old (regardless of sexual debut)
  • Subsequent screenings for normal Pap results are every 3 years
  • Follow-up for minor abnormal Pap results is in 1 year

For more details, please read the material provided on the BC Cancer Agency website and in the Cervical Cancer Screening Policy Change memo (availble for download under "Additional Resources" below).
