Preventing Cervical Cancer

A Pap test and pelvic exam are important parts of a woman's routine health care because they can detect abnormalities that may lead to cancer of the cervix, according to the National Cancer Institute. These abnormalities can be treated before cancer develops. Most cancers of the cervix can be prevented if women have Pap tests regularly.
