To screen for early abnormalities (pre-cancer) which, if left untreated, could lead to cervical cancer, by sampling cells from the cervix. A doctor or nurse inserts an instrument (a speculum) to open the woman's vagina so that they can see the cervix. The sample of cells from the surface of the cervix is obtained using a small brush. Most women consider the procedure to be only mildly uncomfortable although some have more discomfort, but it should not be painful. The specimen containing cells from the cervix is put into a special liquid preservative. This cell suspension is processed in the laboratory and the cells are transferred onto a glass slide, stained, and examined under a microscope. The fluid may also be tested for high risk human papilloma virus (HPV) types.
