Pap Smears

A Pap smear tests for cervical cancer in women. During this procedure, your OB/GYN collects cells from your cervix. Early detection of cervical cancer with the help of a Pap smear gives you a better chance at a cure. Your Pap smear may also show changes in your cervical cells that predict that cancer may develop later on.

Pelvic Exams

A doctor evaluates your reproductive organs during a pelvic exam. This is often part of your routine exam that accompanies a Pap test. You might have a pelvic exam as part of your regular checkup. Your doctor might also recommend a pelvic exam to discover the cause of unusual vaginal discharge or pelvic pain.

Breast Examinations

During a clinical breast exam, your OB/GYN checks your breasts’ appearance. The skin covering your breasts is checked for any rash, dimpling, or other signs of abnormality. Your nipples may be examined to see if fluid is expressed when lightly squeezed.
