Why is Cervical Cancer Screening important for women's health?
Cervical cancer screening is crucial for the early detection of abnormalities in the cervix, allowing for timely intervention and prevention of cervical cancer. Regular screenings significantly increase the chances of successful treatment if any issues are identified.
What methods does Kleyn Healthcare use for Cervical Cancer Screening?
Kleyn Healthcare employs advanced screening methods, primarily the Pap smear and HPV (Human Papillomavirus) testing. The combination of these tests enhances the accuracy of detecting abnormalities or the presence of HPV, a major risk factor for cervical cancer.
How often should women undergo Cervical Cancer Screening?
The frequency of cervical cancer screening may vary based on individual health factors and guidelines. Generally, women are advised to start screening at the age of 21 and follow their healthcare provider's recommendations for subsequent screenings, often occurring every three to five years.
Are there any specific risk factors that may influence the need for more frequent screenings?
Women with certain risk factors, such as a history of abnormal Pap smears, a weakened immune system, or exposure to certain substances, may require more frequent screenings. Kleyn Healthcare's healthcare professionals assess individual risk factors to tailor screening recommendations accordingly.
Is Cervical Cancer Screening uncomfortable or painful?
Cervical cancer screenings, particularly Pap smears, may cause mild discomfort but are not typically painful. Kleyn Healthcare prioritises patient comfort and ensures that the screening process is as gentle and non-invasive as possible.
