A conventional pap smear is used as a screening test for evaluation of the lower female genital tract to detect the presence of inflammatory/infectious or benign proliferative conditions; detection of unsuspected or confirmation of suspected atypical, premalignant, or malignant changes; or follow-up of patients with known and/or treated premalignant or malignant lesions.
The Pap test is a screening test for cervical cancer and its precursors with an inherent false-negative rate.
