Both tests are recommended for sexually active women to help detect cervical cancer and prevent its development.
- The Pap smear test is typically recommended for women between the ages of 21 and 65, while the HPV DNA test is typically recommended for women over the age of 30 or for women who have had an abnormal Pap test result.
- The two tests can be used together to provide more accurate screening results and detect high-risk types of HPV that can cause cervical cancer.
- Women who have abnormal results from either test may require further testing or treatment, such as a colposcopy or biopsy.
- Both the Pap smear and HPV DNA tests are safe and effective ways to help prevent cervical cancer and promote women’s health.
